“After doing the course I was able to attend my daughter’s sports day sat on a rug outside and a year later I was at the same sports day taking part in the parents egg and spoon!” Rachel, Sheffield

(Face to face Lightning Process)

Key Concepts:   The Lightning Process applies well evidenced scientific principles so that you can get back in charge of three very important processes in your body: 

  • The Physical Emergency Response (PER), is the body's responses to threat..  When we sense a threat powerful changes in the nervous and hormonal systems (including the release of adrenaline) change things like blood flow and muscle strength.  These enable us to run away or fight or freeze..  The PER is designed to operate for short periods.  

  • Allostatic Load When the PER is activated repeatedly by long lasting stresses such as chronic illness, post viral fatigue, relationship issues or work it can create havoc.  It affects our sleep, healing and immune system, digestion, clear thinking and general mood.  Research has found it is associated with chronic health issues including heart disease, diabetes, migraine, asthma, chronic pain and CFS/ME. Reducing allostatic load is considered vital for improving chronic health conditions (Logan & Barksdale, 2008).  The Lightning Process®  teaches you how to spot when the PER is happening and how you can calm this response down, allowing your body to re-balance itself.

  • Neuroplasticity is the extraordinary ability of the brain to change in response to being used differently.  Simply by using new ways of thinking old nerve pathways are switched off and replaced by new, more useful, pathways.  The Lightning Process® will teach you how to use neuroplasticity to break out of any destructive unconscious patterns that are keeping you stuck.  You learn to use new, life and health enhancing patterns instead and bring the body back into a healthy balance.

Lightning Process®

Are you affected by issues like re-occurring pain or post viral fatigue? 

Are you exhausted by minimal levels of physical or mental activity, burnt out or feeling stressed all the time? 

Are you wanting a better life but can't find anything that works?


The Lightning Process® is a 3 day training programme and 1 year support package that teaches you to change the way your nervous system controls your body.  It aims to  reset your body’s health systems back to normal by using the well-researched connection that exists between the brain and body


During the training you will learn empowering tools to switch on pathways which promote health and switch off ones which aren’t so good for you. These involve gentle movement, meditation-like techniques and mental exercises. You will learn how to switch out  severe/chronic symptoms like pain or exhaustion ​

Over 3 days you learn the Lightning Process® toolkit, and learn how to put it into practice either face to face or online, one to one or in a group.  Group are usually up to 3..  The usual length of training is 3 - 4 hours. 

After your training you get a FREE MP3 download to help you to put your training into practice. 

Over the next year you have a support package of 5 hours of phone calls and a  up to 3 free 3 hour follow up seminars online.

After your first year paid Lightning Process® support is available:

  • Telephone support/coaching 

  • 2 - 3 hour face to face session plus follow up call

  • 3 hour follow up seminar either face to face or online


If you are very severely affected by disabling fatigue we can put together a plan about how best to do the training with you over the 3 days.  I have trained many people who are very incapacitated, including people who have been bedridden or housebound for many years.
