Response To The Libellous Daily Mail Article About Lighthouse Global

Updated: Mar 15, 2023



An article published by the Daily Mail on Tuesday 19th April 2022 has been the most recent attempt by a small group of disgruntled ex-partners, malignantly toxic family members of people at Lighthouse and other non-affiliated people to damage the reputation of Lighthouse International Group, now known as Lighthouse Global. They have attempted to character assassinate Lighthouse Head Mentor Paul S. Waugh and destroy the livelihoods of those conducting pioneering work at Lighthouse Global.


After publication, Lighthouse Head Mentor Paul S. Waugh was joined in his home by the senior partners, Warren Vaughan, Shaun Cooper, Adam Wallis and Kris Deichler to discuss this libellous Daily Mail article and smear campaign.


Below are the videos which will address the Daily Mail article, the background to the online smear campaign, how it came about and those involved.


This meeting ended up being a fascinating 5-hour discussion of the article dissecting the article's content line by line. We have also shared some of our video responses to the Daily Mail on our Lighthouse Global YouTube channel. The playlist with this video is below.


To those interested in truth beyond sensationalism, these talks will be an exciting and revealing glimpse into exactly what has been pioneered at Lighthouse for 18 years. We've also set up a dedicated site that presents the background to the Daily Mail article about Lighthouse Global and our response.

Having worked in the newspaper industry for 12 years I'm well aware that sensationalism sells copies. I have seen on countless occasions how even a headline alone can mislead deliberately and even impact the readers perception and reaction. Just because something is in print in a newspaper does not make it true. There is a huge and deliberate imbalance to this story and I see that clearly as I have many times before. they chose not to print the many testimonies and glowing references for Lighthouse International, strange that!!!!!!

It has been fascinating to see how ‘half truths’ and falsehoods have been used with the attempt to break down our work and character assassinate us as individuals and as an organization. There was a time that I really believed that for something to be published in the press, it had to be not only true but with this, backed up by evidence following en extensive investigation! This is a powerful lesson for me as I hope it will be for many others, and I hope that our response as a community can bring support to others experiencing persecution unjustly and unfairly.

What tabloids like the Daily Mail expect is people to scurry into the shadows off the back of tripe articles like this, but they guessed wrong with us because we have absolutely nothing to hide and we will not stand by whilst they try to destroy our character and well-being…they will not get away with this. Children and adults alike, are massively impacted through this intent they have to destroy, including their “sources“. What an absolute shambles and an example and reference we will set for standing up for our children and for good work for the benefit of humanity.

What the Daily Mail have written is a poor example of investigative journalism, really they should be ashamed of themselves, calling us "trendy life coaches" seriously?! I think if they knew first hand what some of us have experienced throughout our time here and in our lives they wouldn't publish an article at all, at all! I'm not going to hold back and speak all 'nicey nice' because I am genuinely upset, hurt and honestly extremely indignant. I know for a fact that those who you call 'members' have helped me in my life more than my whole family combined, whether that is helping through a devastating break up from a 6 year relationship or facing and helping my mum…

The Daily Mail article is sensationalist, but it has given us at Lighthouse International Group an opportunity to share our work more widely. It has been a fascinating and pioneering 18 year journey and I hope more people will learn about it and be inspired. This is the opposite of what the trolls want. They want to break us down and hope we will give up and go away, but I feel more inspired and encouraged to be doing this crucial work and serving those who need my help. We need to stand up to the bullying tactics of the media. There is a fear of the media and the impact of smear articles, but the reality is the media…
