Applying the science of the mind-body connection Telephone: +44 (0)20 7374 0233

Dr. Phil Parker, PhD

I’ve always believed that almost anything is possible. So when, in the 1990s, I was asked to find a new way to help people who were incredibly stuck with their health issues, I eagerly began researching into how we might use the mind-body connection effectively.

I’d been fascinated with it since I’d used it to recover from an extremely serious hand injury and was intrigued by the reports of other spontaneous recoveries and research into groups such as the Buddhist monks who seemed to overcome extremes of physical temperature and pain…

My background as an Osteopath, my PhD in the Psychology of Health and as a Personal Development Expert provided me with an opportunity to approach health issues, and ways to make changes in our health, from a totally new perspective.  That research resulted in me designing and continue to develop the Lightning Process.

At first I ran all the seminars myself but it soon became apparent that the Lightning Process could help many more people if there were more practitioners specially trained to run the seminars around the world.  Developing a Register of professionally trained LP practitioners has meant my work has helped thousands of people change their lives and health for the better through LP seminars worldwide.

The success of the LP means I run less courses myself now, although I still run 3 or 4 seminars a year (you can find out about how to join my LP seminars here), as I divide my time between training and supporting our practitioners, my research and developing new courses.

It’s been a truly fascinating journey so far, and there’s so much more to do to bring hope, health and a better future to all – I do hope this site is the starting point for your journey to getting the kinds of changes you wish for too.

“Phil is such an extraordinary teacher and educator that he can shift the way people think and deal with problems that frankly are un-treatable in traditional medical methods.”
