The Lightning Process® is a training programme that harnesses the interaction between our brain and our body and provides you with powerful tools to influence your health and life.

If you know how it feels to…

  • be indescribably exhausted no matter how much rest you get
  • be stuck with re-occurring pain, health symptoms and issues?
  • get so stressed by almost everything and feel low much of the time?
  • want a better life and health but just can’t find anything that works?

If that’s you, then The Lightning Process® could just be the answer you’re looking for.

The training takes place in an interactive and informal seminar for two to four people with coaching, support and feedback tailored to each individual. It can also be arranged on a one to one basis and adapted for young people from the age of 8. Home visits can also be arranged. Please contact me to chat through your needs.

There are three steps to taking The Lightning Process:

The Download

Phil Parker teaches you about the fascinating science and research behind The Lightning Process, how it works and how it can help you find a resolution.

We can then chat by phone to establish the support and specific coaching you may require prior to the seminar.

The Three Day Seminar

Run over three, consecutive, half-days (3 to 5 hours each day)

Ongoing practice and follow on from the seminar

There is a minimum of three hours of follow up, support and coaching with me (often by phone/skype) on a one to one basis. This is normally taken in stages to suit your journey and individual requirements. There is also access to a download and informative newsletters to keep your training up to date.

On average there is a total of 16 hours of training with me.

The cost is £650.

I am based in Dorking with locations available in Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire. Please let me know your requirements – home visits can be arranged.

What the training involves

A number of key concepts are explained, discussed and practiced within the seminar; all of which are designed to encourage an understanding of how we can actively use our brain to make changes to our body’s level of health.

These topics include; how important the words we use are in activating brain pathways; how movement and posture can change brain activation and health and how to develop a compassionate and supportive internal dialogue.

The practical teaching elements include mental rehearsal techniques and the use of simple postural exercises which involve very gentle movement. You will learn self-coaching tools that help to steer the brain towards useful pathways that stimulate better physiology and recovery.

On day 2 and 3 of your seminar some time is spent reflecting on successes and any issues when using the tools outside of the seminar (this is why it’s run over 3 consecutive days).

The YouTube videos on this page explain the theory behind The Lightning Process, which is based on the study of neuroscience, how it forms a compassionate and understanding approach, and the structure of the seminar.

My empathy with clients’ individual experience of symptoms and issues and desire to help them succeed in a journey of recovery is always at the heart of my practice.

Please note Lightning Process is a training programme and not a therapy or hands on cure. I cannot diagnose or give medical advice to clients. Please always seek medical advice from your GP.

How The Lightning Process works

Physical Emergency Response (PER)

You may also know this as the flight or fight response. It is your body’s natural reaction to a threat or stress and is designed to keep you safe by providing a short term burst of strength and speed powered by your sympathetic nervous system.

Modern day living creates threats in many different guises from illness, injury or trauma to relationships, jobs, exams or paying the mortgage. These can create the same chemical and physical responses in your body as when it is faced with danger, but these are instead activated for long periods of time.

This response will compromise your body’s systems and create havoc interfering with your sleep, healing and immune system, digestion, clear thinking and general mood. It can be very difficult to recognise in ourselves when it is an automatic and unconscious response in the body, that may have been going on for some time, keeping your stuck.

The Lightning Process will teach you how to spot when the PER is happening and how you can calm this response down, allowing your body to re-balance itself.

The key point about the Lightning Process is discovering a compassionate way to move forward from physiological illness and issues that result from unconscious automatic patterns with absolutely no element of blame. The PER is explained in the following video:



Your brain has an amazing ability to re-wire itself depending on how it is being used. The brain likes to be efficient and energy saving by creating strong, fast links for regularly used pathways – whether those particular pathways are useful or not.

The Lightning Process will teach you how to recognise the unconscious patterns you are stuck in and how you can re-direct them in a new, life enhancing way that with practise become the dominant pathways.

This is explained in simple terms throughout the seminar before learning easy to follow techniques.

The following short video provides details of some of the research into The Lightning Process.
