Time-Based Techniques are used in conjunction with NLP to find memories that you wish to work with in a meaningful and transformational way.
Time-Based Techniques were developed by John Overdurf and Julie Silverthorne.
The difference between Time Based Techniques (TBT) and other time techniques, is that TBT allows the practitioner to use the modality the client is in The Vakog in NLP terms – (visual, tactile, audio, gustatory, olfactory, self talk – labelling), to travel in and therefore not stop the conversation/flow the practitioner and client are already in.
Therefore Time Based Techniques is the conversational aspect to memories similarly to conversational anchoring.
Humans unconsciously store memories and know the difference between a memory from the past and a projection of the future. Behavioural change in an individual takes place at an unconscious level. People don’t change consciously. Time Based Techniques allow you to work at the unconscious level and release the effects of past negative experiences and change “inappropriate” programming in minutes rather than days, months or years.
A TBT practitioner can work on any and all deep seated memories of any kind. Memories at the functional level work the same way. A memory of a fatal car crash involving a loved one will have the same structure as a memory of dropping an ice cream when we were children.
