Time Line


Time Line
Time Line Therapy is a collection of techniques that allow you to gain emotional control over your life. Inappropriate emotional reactions, such as bursts of anger, periods of apathy, depression, sadness, anxiety and chronic fear, are responsible for preventing people from achieving the quality of life they desire. Limiting decisions such as I''m not good enough" or "I'll never be rich" or "I don't deserve a great marriage" create false limitations and hamper your ability to create reachable and attainable goals and outcomes.
Throughout history, humankind has been aware of the passage of time. Aristotle was the first to mention the "stream of time" in his book Physics IV. William James spoke of linear memory storage as early as 1890. In the decades to follow, the concept all but faded into obscurity. It was finally revived in the late 1970s by the developers of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Drs Tad James and Wyatt Woodsmall then combined these ideas of time being an internal storage system with therapeutic processes and the result was Time Line Therapy"!.
In a nutshell, TLT works with our knowledge of how people actually store their memories and the effect that the system used for the storage of memories has on the personality of the individual. The suggestion is that the concept of Time Line or the notion of time that you have stored in your mind, shapes and structures your experience of the world and therefore shapes your personality.
We now believe that the way people talk about their internal experience (including their gestures) of time is a literal (as opposed to metaphorical) description of the composition of their experience. How people talk about time is an actual representation of what they do mentally. Use of temporal language is just a description of how they store time.

What's the difference between aIl these:

  • "You're going to look back on this and laugh"
  • "Put it behind you"
  • "Time is on my side"
  • "I just don't see how I'm going to get it done in time."
TLT works on the presupposition that there are basically two different KINDS of time: what James calls through Time and In-Time. The former is based on the kind of white, western, industrialised notion of time where we ring bells or klaxons to say "time to start" and "time to stop" and punish people for not keeping inside the parameters. In-time is more laid-back and "manana" like - an appointment is something that goes against the grain and a personal appointment can include several people.
Your personal "time-line" is how you unconsciously store your memories and how you unconsciously know the difference between a memory from the past and a projection of the future. It has been established that behavioural change takes place at an unconscious level and releases the effects of past negative experiences and changes "inappropriate" programming in minutes. This is deep, lasting change, documented by two decades of research and experience and some 20 "Approved Institutes" of TLT throughout the world.
What is Time-Line Therapy ?
Time-Line Therapy"! is a branch of Neuro-Linguistic programming (NLP) which has evolve into an independent discipline.

TLT was developed by Drs Tad James and Wyatt Woodsmall from the groundwork of NLP co-founders Richard Bandler and John Grinder.
In addition, Dr Tad James drew on the reflections of the Greek Philosopher Aristotle, the turn-of-the-century American Psychologist William James and ancient Hawaiian culture to produce a distinct and profoundly effective form of psychotherapy now known world-wide as TLT.
TLT works with how the unconscious mind organises time and memories. TLT practitioners can use learning at the unconscious level to assist clients to release deep-seated negative emotional baggage and limiting beliefs from the past without having to relive painful events - or even consciously know what they are. It is an astonishingly powerful yet gentle form of brief therapy.
TLT techniques are also the most powerful means we have yet found of setting goals so that your unconscious mind knows they are in the future and works to make them real. They can be used in therapy, for business coaching, goal-setting and team building, as a different approach to time mangement and for personal development.
What can you achieve with TLT ?

  • discover how your unconscious mind organises time
  • learn why conventional time management courses don't work for everyone
  • improve your own time management
  • release emotions attached to past events
  • remove old, inappropriate limiting decisions and beliefs
  • dispel anxiety about future events
  • clear the way for a brighter future
  • create achievable outcomes in tune with who you are and who you want to be
  • learn how to shift your personal time-line so that you can be relaxed or highly motivated, as is most appropriate for the situation
