Lightning Process Success Stories

Florence's Story

Florence had been suffering with Long Covid for 20 months. She struggled with breathlessness, neurological and heart issues, chronic pain and debilitating fatigue. Here she tells her story - her journey from resignation to hope and recovery.

Sarah's Story

Sarah had been struggling with Long Covid for 16 months. She longed to be able to enjoy time with her energetic boys, go for long walks and enjoy the outdoors again - but even having a coffee with a friend wiped her out for days. Here Sarah tells her story. 

Vanessa’s Story

Vanessa had been suffering from debilitating Fibromyalgia and Depression for many years. She had been prevented from doing many of the things she enjoyed due to pain, brain fog and fatigue. Even relatively small things like crocheting and sewing were too painful. Driving was impossible due to stiffness and pain in her neck. Much of her days were spent in bed or on the sofa…

Two months on from taking the Lightning Process Training with Anna and the transformation was incredible. 


Vanessa reflects in her own words:


I really don’t know where the time has gone – it is nearly 2 months now since I finished the course with you. I have not had the time to think about my old self as I have been so busy living my new life!

I am driving the Landrover nearly every day – taking the dogs to the beach for their runs and walking myself again! I have started my new part time job at the Gateway Centre and have taken  on the church Finance Officer role plus still doing my other 2 voluntary jobs AND I am feeling great.

I have cut down my pain and other medication by 50% and will be working with my GP to reduce it to zero!

My garden is looking fab and I am crocheting like mad. Just a couple of things left to tick off my “want to want to do list” but finding the time is the problem now!

The contrast to my former self is like comparing black to white – unrecognisable! I follow the Lightning Process less these days as my brain has rewired to the new me but I have the comfort of knowing it is there if I need it.

I just cannot thank you enough for the course and your kindness and support throughout and since!  


Kate's Story

I had been ill with Long Covid for 5 months and was spending the majority of every day in bed. I could focus on a small activity, like talking to someone or watching TV for about half an hour, then I would stop for a complete rest. A good day was when I managed to wash and dress and eat one meal downstairs. Holidays were cancelled. I hadn't been to church or seen friends in  months, I couldn't walk to the end of the garden or do anything to help at home. I spent a lot of time alone. 

On day one of the Lighting Process training, everything changed. I decided to ditch my old timed daily routine, forget conserving every ounce of energy and instead use the Lighting Process every time I had a symptom. On that first day I managed a whole morning of training on Zoom, did some washing up, cut my son's hair and took the dog for a walk. That same week I did some school runs, ate all my meals downstairs, drove the car, went out for a coffee, cooked a meal, had some tickle fights with my son, went to church and booked a holiday.

5 weeks on and I would say that I have re-entered normal life. I have the energy to do whatever I choose. I have a clear mind and can read, recall and consider information and join in long conversations. I can engage with my community at church, school and with friends and family. I can look after my family again instead of them looking after me. I can play and have fun again. Life is a joy instead of a struggle. I haven't yet regained 100% of my old strength but I'm well on the way. 



Patrick’s Story


Patrick had been struggling with Long Covid for 10 months prior to the Lightning Process. Prior to becoming unwell he was in his second year at university and very active. All this ended and he had to move back home to be looked after by his parents due to debilitating fatigue, brain fog and other issues. 

Patrick comments 3 months after his LP seminar

 “After 10 months of Long Covid, the Lightning Process has really helped me turn a corner with my recovery. I found it very straight forward and logical, having initially been sceptical. Since completing the course around three months ago my condition has significantly improved, having struggled to make any progress for several months beforehand. The way in which Anna runs the course is very relaxed and is conducted at whatever pace is most comfortable for you. There is no pressure put on participants whatsoever. I cannot recommend it highly enough”

Mike's Story


"In 2018 I suffered from a mild stroke, fortunately I recovered quite quickly but was left with chronic fatigue which for me meant I had to rest for anything up to two hours at lunchtime. If I didn’t I really couldn’t function.

Last August I took the plunge and contacted Anna and booked myself in for the Lightning Process.
I did a three day course with Anna, now four months later my life is back on track, I’m happily doing the things I want to do AND when I want to do them!

Anna is a lovely person and made me totally relaxed throughout the three days. It’s not a scary or particularly difficult process and if you're suffering from chronic fatigue I strongly recommend the Lightning Process, and Anna in particular."
