A review by Suzanne Milbourne 1

I first heard about Phil when I booked into to do Lighting Process for M.E/CFS. Lighting Process was of course a huge turning point for me where I discovered the strength and motivation to change my life. After the Lighting Process I knew I wanted to be a practitioner so signed up for the Clinical Diploma with Phil to start my journey.

That was back in September 2015, and now 6 months on as I approach the completion of the course, I can truly say the training I have received has been transformational. This is by far the best training I have ever attended and it has given me a whole new skill set and way of looking at life.

Phil is an inspirational, talented and supportive tutor and practitioner who truly cares about his students/clients, about NLP, and about life in general. He delivers his training in a way that is easy to understand with a great sense of humour, lots of practical demonstrations and some brilliant metaphors and stories.

I would recommend one of Phil's courses to anyone, in fact I think everyone should sign up! The world would be a better place!

A review by Sue Wilkinson

Phil was my trainer and the best instructor and advocate for the power of NLP.
After a lifetime career in the equestrian field, NLP was an obvious next step in my life journey, but I never realised how lucky I would be to have such an inspirational trainer. The knowledge and practices we have been taught by Phil, were delivered with humour and excitement, in a very professional and easy to understand way. Only when I look back on my last six months do I realise just how much I have grown, and learned about myself and the power of NLP. I am inspired and excited to step forward on my new path, and as I now have a thorough and expansive knowledge at my fingertips, I can only thank Phil for his inspiration and guidance.

A review by Jane Vigon

NLP is really powerful and enables people who know it to change their lives enormously, and, potentially, the lives of others.
I was trained by Phil Parker and recommend him very highly. His demonstrations show changes I didn't believe possible, then I went on to change myself and others in many positive ways.

I have not yet reviewed any books.
