Time Line Therapy®

Time Line Therapy® (also known as TLT) is one of the most advanced methods in the field of coaching and therapy. It is not a therapeutic tool; however, it is used by psychologists and counselors. This tool is proven to be highly effective when it comes to getting rid of negative emotions and limiting beliefs. As a highly effective set of methods, Time Line Therapy® incorporates principles of psychology, hypnosis and regression, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Gestalt Therapy and other powerful methodologies.

What Is Time Line Therapy®?

Every individual has a timeline that manifests in terms of a mental album to distinguish between past experiences and future perceptions. Your unconscious mind stores your memories in a temporal fashion so that you can know when something happened. However, our past memories may install dysfunctional unconscious programs (wrong assumptions, limiting beliefs, or limiting decisions) that show their negative impacts in our lives.
These dysfunctional internal programs are stored at our unconscious minds where we may not be aware of their existence. When something happens in our environment, these unconscious programs start running and we will express emotions. What we need is to uninstall (remove) our internal programs, at the unconscious level, to give up negative emotions from our past experiences.

How Does Time Line Therapy® Work?

The Time Line Theory® is an interesting process that you can be done in an one-on-one coaching session. This fast, yet effective, process helps you create trance quickly. Unlike hypnosis, where a hypnotist tries to hypnotize you, you can create it for yourself easily and effortlessly. As a result, conscious-unconscious integration happens because you will trust your unconscious mind to do the process for you.

This method uses regression and it is done by the use of active imagination. The reason for its effectiveness is that you will deal with the root cause of the problem not its consequences; once the root cause is dealt with, the whole gestalt of the emotion will be gone and negative emotion will be released (and limiting belief will be removed).

In addition, the client does not have to go into the past traumatic events (to experience trauma again); instead, s/he will only get positive learnings from it, the learning of which will allow them to let go of the decision easily and effortlessly. Once the learnings are installed in the unconscious mind and root cause is deleted, the negative emotion, or unconscious limiting decision, will be released, or removed.

By releasing anger, sadness, fear, hurt, guilt, or other emotions from your past, you become free and ready to experience current situations without your past pulling you down. Especially, once you get rid of all your limiting beliefs or unconscious limiting decisions, you are ready to design a new life for yourself. A new lifestyle; a new you.

In conclusion, Time Line Therapy® is a simple process that only requires your commitment to change. It is a powerful process that gives you not only peace with your past but also unlimited possibilities in your future. This is because it eliminates fear, which is the biggest barrier to achieving most dreams.
