You can’t overcome pain without going THROUGH the pain. But today on the True Grit and Grace podcast we have an incredible expert and one of my dear friends to teach us a whole new way to think about finding PURPOSE in pain. 

I met Dr. Phil Parker when we shared the stage at the Annual Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Association Conference and I instantly knew I wanted to learn more about his amazing healing practice and techniques. Dr. Phil is an acclaimed personal development lecturer, therapist, innovator and the author of 4 books.  He created the Lightning Process which helps individuals to profoundly change their lives and health. Since then he has trained practitioners who deliver it in 15 countries and on 5 different continents.

Because of his wealth of experience helping clients make rapid and sustained change using a range of tools, including the Lightning Process, and his talent for explaining complex ideas and concepts simply, Dr. Phil is regularly called upon to make keynote speeches/talks all over the world. He has recently worked with The British Olympic team, GP appraisers in the UK and Osteopathic practices around the world. For the last 20 years Phil has been training students to be practitioners in NLP, Coaching, Clinical Hypnotherapy and the Lightning Process. He runs practitioner and post-graduate courses and also personal development courses for people just wanting to work with him personally and benefit from his expertise.

Dr. Phil completed his PhD in the Psychology of Health at London Metropolitan University and is involved in research into a number of areas including the Lightning Process and Substance Use Disorders.

In this episode, Dr. Phil shares powerful insights into how we can manage our pain, turn it into purpose, and keep it from consuming us. This is an incredible resource that I hope you share with anyone you know who experiences any kind of pain. (ESPECIALLY COMPLEX REGIONAL PAIN SYNDROME, CRPS)
