More about NLP & Time Line Therapy

Among many tools, modalities and practices that I use to assist clients in becoming all that they can be, I am a certified NLP & Time Line Therapy practitioner – therapies that are integrated within all my other offerings in support of powerful self-change.

Some of the things NLP & Time Line Therapy can help with:

  • Releasing negative emotions of sadness, anger, hurt, guilt, shame etc
  • Releasing limiting beliefs and decisions and installing new and empowering ones that move life in the direction of where you want to be
  • Changing unwanted habits and thoughts and eliminating anxiety about the future
  • Releasing food, entertainment and other addictions
  • Releasing disabling fears and phobias
  • Healing past traumas and wounding
  • Reframing and gaining clarity around stuck situations in life, freeing up energy to move forward
  • Improving relationships
  • Creating lasting change in physical and emotional wellbeing
  • Radically and rapidly increasing confidence and self-belief
  • Getting clear on your goals and values and how to actually achieve them

How does it work?
NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) has got a bad rap over the years, and for good reason – I have personally seen it used in highly manipulative ways by many people in the sales and marketing industries, to name a few, and used to be horrified at even the mention of what I assumed to be a horrible discipline by nature. That is until I learned that this was not its intended purpose!

Both NLP & its accompanying system of Time Line Therapy were originally designed as therapeutic models specifically for use in a therapy setting, and were later picked up and taken advantage of by an unscrupulous few who saw the possibility to use these systems for personal gain at the expense of others. Needless to say my perception of the power of NLP when used appropriately and for its intended purpose – that being to assist oneself and others with dismantling their own limitations – was changed overnight, and I knew I needed to train in this very powerful modality as another way of supporting my beloved clients.

Both NLP & Time Line Therapy work by deliberately rewiring our neurology and neural pathways, so that rather than operating according to programming and belief systems of limitation, old wounding, traumas, and fear-based assumptions that belong to old paradigms, they operate according to the higher standards of infinite possibility, profound safety, expanded capacity and embodied understanding and acceptance of our vast potential, that we consciously install, according to what feels right and true for us from the perspective of our greater being.

Of all the modalities I’ve worked with and studied, I credit Time Line Therapy for being the “missing piece” that finally resolved my 15 year long journey with complex PTSD (note: to treat something of this more severe nature, I recommend a multi-session package or a full mentoring program as a single session is unlikely to be sufficient).

Why do we even need to do this?

Animals in the wild, when they experience any kind of shock or trauma, will generally shake themselves off immediately, dispersing the charge of the experience from their bodies so that it doesn’t get stuck there, and thus they are able to move on relatively unscathed by the challenges they encounter on a day to day basis.

We are not taught to do this, and so painful, traumatic or challenging experiences that we have had and that been unable to be processed at the time for whatever reason (including past life experiences) get stuck in the body, specifically in the nervous system or neurology, leaving a trapped negative emotional charge that causes our neurological pathways to be physically “blocked” with the old, and thus unable to move in the direction that we really want to go in our lives.

This often shows up as the feeling that we “just can’t go there” with certain experiences we might wish to have (for example flourishing relationships, success in our business), like we are physically unable to take steps towards our aims, like our actual physiology does not support us – no matter how much we might try to “think ourselves towards our desired reality”. It can also show up in the way that as soon as we get close, we sabotage our efforts completely and fall straight back into negative past patterns.

NLP & Time Line Therapy work to remove these negative emotional charges from the body, creating new neural pathways that are directly wired to support us in the direction of our aims – pathways that will actually pull us towards our desired reality, rather than prevent us from reaching what we seek to achieve! The power of this is quite tremendous. 

If you feel that these therapies may help you, they can either be experienced within any of my general one to one offerings, or as standalone therapies, for which single session and multi-session bundles are available.
