I did the training a year ago now, can both dream and do – lots!  I’d like to thank my trainer Heather Thomas. She was fantastic – steady, firm, intuitive, compassionate, with a sure touch every time! She handled things beautifully . I am very grateful and couldn’t have wished for more.  I relish my strength and trust myself.”

When I attended the lightning process with Heather, I’d had M.E. for about a year. I had very little
energy, having to sleep many hours a day, unable to work or exercise, with headaches, digestive
problems, poor sleep and muscle aches after even light exercise. This was actually the second time
of having it, having had it before about twenty years ago. It had taken me a long time to fully recover
before; many years in fact to fully recover.
By the second day of the Process I was already beginning to see some signs of improvement, and
then gradually recovered further over the following weeks. Heather’s commitment and support was
extraordinary; she was totally dedicated to me using the process properly and making a recovery.
The follow up phone calls after the course were really helpful and supportive.
I am now fully recovered, able to live a normal life, and resuming my work. I’ll always be grateful to
Phil and Heather for helping me to get my life back on track.
If anyone is thinking about trying The Lightening Process I would say ‘just do it!‘ The process itself is
very simple, quick and easy to use, and a great tool I still use for keeping healthy.

I can do anything I want being there full time for my family, running and exercising full of energy and positive feelings. Since I spent those short hours with u I have never looked back.

Heather provides powerful, insightful coaching, which she delivers with great sensitivity and skill. When I first visited her I was using a wheelchair in some situations because my body had more or less given up. Less than a year later I completed my first triathlon. 

With complicated health issues the pathway has not been a simple one for me, but Heather’s help has been priceless. Powerful, insightful coaching, delivered with sensitivity and skill.


“I can’t tell you how dramatically my life has changed since you came to see me and I know it will keep doing so. I am always so grateful to you – you were definitely the practitioner for me!” Read more of this story from someone who had severe ME/CFS for many years

….”Two years later (sept 2017) my son and I went together to a refresher course with Heather and I had one of my proudest moments when my son stood up and talked about his positive changes. To hear him talk about how the process helped him to go on and achieve his dreams of getting a recording contract and perform concerts all over the world was incredibly moving as I knew where he had been and how for he has come.”  Read Ally’s full story

It has been wonderful to host Heather Thomas’ Norway courses from 2007 and inspiring to follow her oHeather and Gunvorutstanding work. What excellent results and what a thorough and conscientious follow-up of each and everyone, both at the course and afterwards when necessary. The genuine Lightning Process® at its best, as I see it.

In November 2007, Gunvor Hals, a well-known Norwegian TV presenter on the Norwegian National TV station NRK, heard about The Lightning Process. She attended one of Heather’s Seminars in the UK as an observer.

Gunvor believed that people in Norway could benefit from this training but many could not travel to the UK. She invited Heather to come to Oslo in December 2007. She offered her house as a suitable place for the training. She wanted to enable people to be able to get the training that she believed could help based on the results she had seen in the seminar.

Heather Thomas was my coach in 2009. A fantastic and brilliant woman. Changed my life completely.
ME, migraines, muscle pains etc disappeared♥
If someone have any questions about my story, you can contact me and I will answer you as best I can 

So two years ago I was able to work but would come home and have to crawl up the stairs. I didn’t have enough energy to stand over the sink and clean my teeth. I would have to drag myself out of bed every morning. I was in bed by 8 every night. Life seemed so hard and I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. But then I went to Heather Thomas and learnt the lightening process. Below is now a typical day...
5.45 awake
Stretches and sit ups
7.15 at work – till 3.45 (I’m a busy Macmillan palliative care nurse in a busy hospital)
4.30 at the gym
Twice a week I do weights with my amazing trainer Benjamin BigBen Greenblatt who has sorted my diet
Three times a week I do 30 mins of cardio (4.5k)
I stay up later and feel great. I have so much energy.
The lightening process helps me in all areas of my life and had been a great tool for use in the gym
I’ve signed up to start a masters in September.
Thank you

Gina Langridge

If you know anyone who has CFS/ME and isn’t getting better, I can only say that the Lightning Process worked for me.
