WHAT IS TIME LINE THERAPY ?
In 1985, Tad James, M.S., Ph.D., following many years as a Master Trainer of NLP and Hypnotherapy, applied an age-old theory of how humans store time and created a therapeutic process called Time Line Therapy . Aristotle was the first to mention the "stream of time" in his book Physics IV, and William James spoke of "linear memory" as early as 1890. Finally, the founders of NLP, Richard Bandler and John Grinder, revived the concept in the late 1970's, when they modeled Fritz Perls Gestalt Therapy.
Dr. James took the concept of an internal memory storage system one step further and fashioned a collection of techniques which produce long-lasting transformation in a very short period of time. These powerful Time Line Therapy techniques are becoming the method of choice to make fast, effective, long-term changes in behavior.
As we live our lives we unconsciously store memories. We are not consciously aware of them all of the time, but when we remember them we know they are memories because they differ from the present and our projections of the future. This seems academic, at first blush. However, because we often bring the experiences of the "past" into the present moment, it is possible that our reactions have no real bearing on what is happening in the "now". Have you ever been "hijacked" by a sudden intense emotion? One, perhaps, that brings up negative memories that really have nothing to do with what is actually going on? On a conscious level you might be wondering, "Where on earth did that reaction come from?" The answer lies deep within your unconscious mind.
Time Line Therapy provides an elegant way to effect change on an unconscious level, since all behavioral change must take place on that level. This process allows us to consciously desire change and to be able to release the effects of negative experiences and "inappropriate" programming in minutes rather than days, months or years.
As Dr. James says: "Be free of your past, create your future!"
