Time Line Therapy® is a collection of techniques that allows 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,” “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. Created by Dr. Tad James, Time Line Therapy® techniques enable you to eliminate many types of issues in your past, thus allowing you to move forward toward your goals and desires.
Has anyone ever told you that you overreacted to a situation but you did not agree? Have you ever missed out on events, such as family gatherings, because of negative emotions? Have you ever set goals in the future and had them not happen?
Our past experiences and the memories that go with them affect how we approach present day situations. When preventing us from expressing ourselves in an appropriate way these experiences and memories stop us from achieving the results we want. Time Line Therapy® techniques can assist us to change all that.
Time Line Therapy® is a process that assists us:
- To let go of Negative Emotions from the past
- To let go of Limiting Decisions from the past
- Create our future the way we want it.
These are the three major techniques that comprise Time Line Therapy®—they are easy to do and make a significant change in a person’s life.
The Time Line Therapy® process was introduced in 1988 with the publication of the book ‘Time Line Therapy® and the Basis of Personality’, by Dr Tad James and Wyatt Woodsmall.
The Time Line can be seen as a model (or a simulation) of how our mind works. It is a representation of our memories and significant emotional events along a line of time from the past, through now, to the future. Since it’s introduction, there has been a rapid uptake of the process by people involved in personal change or personal development, due to the speed and effectiveness with which the process deals with unwarranted negative emotions, limiting decisions and beliefs, anxiety and phobia. The process is also excellent for enabling us to set and achieve our goals.
Time Line Therapy® has proven to be a powerful and very quick way to enable people to revisit sometimes painful and dramatic experiences without having to re-live the emotions or negative content of those events. The process involves viewing these experiences from new perspectives, and recoding them with new empowering resources. This re-coding can have profound change effects upon our internal filters, connecting resources to achieve more positive behaviour and therefore results.
