Time Line Therapy® (TLT) is a therapeutic process developed by Dr. Tad James, a Master Trainer of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). This type of therapy releases negative emotions attached to past events such as anger, fear, sadness, hurt and guilt. It also eliminates self-limiting beliefs that hinder a person from pursuing the life that they want.
Negative emotions get in the way of one’s work, relationships, health and life per se. Taking away the negative emotions attached to past events changes a person’s behaviour and perspective on life. Next time a situation that would normally make them feel bad arises, they will be able to deal with it intelligently rather than base their reaction on how they felt towards a similar event in the past.
How Does Time Line Therapy® Work?
In a Time Line Therapy® session, the therapist activates the unconscious mind of the client by putting them in a relaxed state. The client is taken to some point in their past before they experienced the negative emotions stored in their subconscious mind. The therapist then guides their client to those events where their negative emotions were created and releases them from such feelings permanently.
Time Line Therapy® does not delete events from a person’s memory, only the negative emotions attached to these. After undergoing a TLT session, a person will still remember the past events in their life but no longer wallow in sadness, anger, fear or other emotions that were previously associated with those events.
What are the Benefits of Time Line Therapy®?
Time Line Therapy® can improve all aspects of life as it eliminates negative emotions to boost one’s confidence, improve their relationships and realise their goals. It is a powerful therapy that can help with a wide range of physical, mental and emotional conditions such as the following:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Phobias and fears
- Emotional eating
- Weight loss concerns
- Emotional disturbances
- Poor performance at work, sports or academics
- Financial difficulties
- Sexual dysfunction
What Can You Expect From Time Line Therapy®?
A Time Line Therapy® session takes about an hour and a half and does not have to be repeated. The client does not have to keep coming back to address a specific negative emotion. Once the source of an emotion has been identified and removed from the client’s subconscious, it creates a domino effect. The succeeding events in their life which triggered the same emotion can be eliminated as well.
At the beginning of the therapy session, the practitioner places the client in a relaxed state while they discuss the negative emotions that the latter would like to resolve. The client remains fully conscious throughout the therapy session as they work through clearing negative emotions from the past to break the patterns of beliefs and behaviour that they are currently experiencing and affecting their life.
After the session, the client will feel a great sense of relief and lightness. To ensure the client’s continuous healing, the practitioner will educate them on different methods that will enable them to make the right decisions in the future.
Is Time Line Therapy® Safe?
Time Line Therapy® is carried out in a safe, noninvasive and relaxing manner. What’s more, the client is not forced to relive painful events in their past, which could subject them to trauma. Anyone, regardless of age, can benefit from TLT and rewrite the course of their life.
