Re: Lightning Process??!!!
Royden: From Large LP post
"I saw a friend last week and it appears that she went in for this "Lightning therapy" last year as she suffers from ME.
It cost her £550 (reduced from £660 - wow bonus
She showed me the documentation despite the fact that she wasnt supposed to tell anyone as its a big secret apparently, every sheet had "not to be reproduced, copied, etc anywhere else under pain of death" (ok the last bit wasnt on there - dont want to get sued for libel
To my mind what i read was just self confidence building, for instance you had to stop and speak to yourself when you felt bad, and give yourself a positive pep talk. While I didnt read through it 100% this seemed to be the main thrust of the course material so it appears that you are paying £500-£600 for something you could easily get from the NHS or any self help book (which would cost a lot less).
I asked her if the course came with any guarentees considering the cost but she said that it was mentioned that if it didnt work then it was your own fault and not the responsibility of the person who gives the course, so no surprise there then.
She said it didnt work anyway.
While that sort of confidence building may well be useful for some people I dont see the necessity of paying a considerable amount of money for something that can be obtained either free or £10 from most bookshops"
I suspect this is what JJ meant about being secretive, by the way if you want some negative comments to balance your blog, there are several on the LP thread here.
