Understanding Time Line Therapy

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:

  1. To let go of Negative Emotions from the past
  2. To let go of Limiting Decisions from the past
  3. Create our future the way we want it.

About Negative Emotions:

Time Line Therapy techniques allow freedom from undesired negative emotions; such as fear, anger, sadness and anxiety, by releasing these emotions from the memories that harvest them. You are then able to react freely to future situations – without the emotional baggage of the past.

Limiting Decisions:

Limiting decisions and beliefs prevent you from achieving your potential. These decisions and beliefs have come about as a result of past experiences but may have stayed with you ’till today and have limited your life in many ways. Time Line Therapy techniques allow you to leave these decisions and beliefs in the past where they belong and to learn from your experiences. Therefore, enabling you to create useful and empowering alternatives.

Creating Your Future:

Finally, having resolved the unresolved issues in the past, Time Line Therapy gives us a specific way of creating our future dreams and goals in a simple process that produces results. The process involves using our imagination to create a compelling future that is inspirational and which brings about the desired outcomes.


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,” “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.

The sum total of our life experiences and the memories associated with them impact on how we approach our lives now, day to day. It’s “the stuff” from the past that keeps us less than fulfilled and stops us from achieving the results we want.

Time Line Therapy uses the individual own internal “Time Line” by working with their Unconscious Mind in a number of ways which include healing emotional traumas and eliminating unwanted thoughts, emotions and behaviours in minutes rather than days, months or years. Time Line Therapy means that finally, you can have freedom from your past allowing you to have your future by design.

The Time Line and why it’s needed

Your time line is how the unconscious mind encodes and stores your memories. It is a largely unconscious process and you may be more or less aware of it from time to time. Time line therapy techniques give us a way to resolve significant events in a person’s past. We can also release the negative emotions in memories quickly and easily. The release of these emotions then has an effect on the person’s behaviour. Time line therapy also allows us to re-evaluate the past and change any decision that limits us. Whether conscious or unconscious, these decisions affect our behaviour in the present. Creating the future is the last step, and you can actually create your future the way you want it.

How does time line therapy work?

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.
