Time Line Therapy

Time Line Therapy® was developed by Tad James. Time Line Therapy® involves treatment at an unconscious level and allows a client to surrender negative emotions linked to past experiences and transform their internal programming. A person’s Time Line represents their mental photo album and their own ability to distinguish between images of the past and perceptions of the future. The internal programming is often the mechanism that is responsible for our outward expressions of emotions.

Goal of Time Line Therapy®

The goal of Time Line Therapy® is to subtly and unconsciously change the client’s behavior patterns so that they can react to present experiences based on present conditions and not react to situations that present themselves today based on emotions linked to previous life events. The technique relies on reprogramming a person’s response and behavior mechanism in such a way to bring about a healthier sense of well-being. The Time Line Therapy® method provides lasting results that can be achieved in weeks.

Methods of Time Line Therapy®

Time Line Therapy incorporates a sampling of various techniques that empower a person to take the emotional reins of their life back. People often suffer from emotional outbursts or unfamiliar reactions and they do not know why. Emotions such as depression, anxiety, fear, apathy or sadness are all symptoms of negative feelings that prevent someone from reaching the peak of their human development. Often, limiting beliefs are manifested in our verbal expressions. These beliefs are born out of past experiences and we have integrated them into our internal structure.

Outcome of Time Line Therapy®

The Time Line Therapy® technique allows you to move past these limiting beliefs and personal constrictions on your life. Through practical application, a person can be guided to access specific memories and learn how to disconnect from the negative feelings associated with those memories. This allows a person to liberate themselves from their prior belief system and instead create new, more positive affirmations and beliefs with which they can use to propel them to a fuller and more enriching life.
