What Are Time Based Techniques?
Throughout history, humankind has been aware of the passage of time. Aristotle was the first to mention the “stream of time” in his book Physics IV. William James spoke of linear memory storage as early as 1890. In the mid-20th Century Milton Erickson created his own techniques based on memories mapping onto a time line that is held in the mind as pseudo-space. Here’s where Time Based Techniques comes into play.
“ The whole presupposition of fun and passionate belief in the material was outstanding and especially the intelligence in the delivery of the training, giving respect to the intelligence of the delegates…passion, love, and respect.”
“ I’ve attended a great many trainings in my role as CEO of a City Communications business and none have got close to the sequence of deep learning’s about myself I have experienced from this training. A big thank you! ”
“ …it was life-changing – thank you. thank you. I have a feeling we will be seeing each other again. You have given me the confidence to live the life I want and there are some major changes ahead!! ”
“ I have grown, changed, and improved myself so much over the sum of just one week. It has been a true and remarkable experience. For your expertise, energy, and love! Thank you so much!! ”
“Wow – firstly I ditched my old workplace and I’m now renting a chair at the chicest salon in Cambridge. To add to that in my first week I more than doubled my income and have reduced my working hours! My social life has completely hit the roof. All my relationships with family, friends are on fire and my communication skills are so clear and much more resourceful, it’s very exciting!”
“I already had some basic knowledge of NLP from books but I learned so much here. The combination of resources, teaching, and actual practical learning time really helped me to fully grasp the concepts and techniques and by the end of the week, I felt confident in my ability to start practicing with clients. Since completing the course I have already taken on clients and integrated my learnings into my business and also my parenting! I have already booked on to Terry’s Master Practitioner course next year – I can’t wait!”
“I wanted to thank you for such a transformational experience and for your dedication and enlightenment to us. I feel a lightness and strong energy in myself and as well as all the content taught, I have learnt to trust my instincts again and be me.”
“Hi, Terry, Just a brief email to express my thanks for the manner in which you delivered the training course last week. The course was certainly inspirational and I look forward to further extending my knowledge in this area in the future. Grateful too for all your advice and support.”
“Hey, I was offered my dream job last week, and I got it through my understanding of NLP. I have been offered the job of Employment Law Trainer with Hugh James law firm.”
“In spite of my initial reservations concerning the relevance of NLP techniques to the wider business environment, this programme provided me with exposure to a range of powerful approaches that I have since successfully applied back in the workplace. I would recommend this programme to individuals seeking an opportunity to link their professional and personal development objectives. An excellent course. ”
“ …once again, you have been an absolute star, and am in awe at both you and Adam, in your ability to convey such complex information to a range of people with different educational and experiential backgrounds. I feel that without any doubt I made the right choice in being trained by you… ”
“…….when I looked at the manual I went a wee bit flat – I’d seen this before. My experience on the workshop however was phenomenal and that initial excitement came back and is growing. On that day in Brighton, I got that rare mix – important learnings and significant personal change. I was interested in synesthesias generally. I really liked how Dilts described it in Changing Beliefs. There’s nothing quite like actual experience, however. Through this workshop and my experience of both the teaching and the approach, you’ve really added to my understanding. The whole aspect of gestalts and generalizations that just run and run and run is now so much clearer. Wow, and that’s huge for me. Was it a good investment? It was most certainly worth every penny and indeed quite a few more.”
Humans unconsciously store memories and know the difference between a memory from the past and a projection of the future. Behavioral change in an individual takes place at an unconscious level. People don’t change consciously. The Time Based Techniques (TBT) 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.
What’s different about Time Based Techniques?
Also, the ‘travelling’ part is made super easy by a simple-to-use technique where a practitioner harnesses the modalities mentioned above to instantaneously transport clients to anywhere in this lifetime or past lifetimes if that’s where the problems arose. We have done away with the concept that is just one ‘root cause’ as well. You can use any of the memories that the client’s unconscious comes up with.
The whole process has been slim-lined, rather like conversational anchoring, to be utilized in a conversation…and not stop the client to set up a difficult process. We tend to use the client’s own inner emotions and clues to let us know what modality (Visual, Audio, etc), to travel back in…and it will happen in the moment.
In NLP we say that naturally occurring states are the most powerful, so why stop the client if they are already accessing a powerful state? “ummm, excuse me, I see that you are going into an emotion…let’s set up the technique I am going to use” ??!! Then, in the old methods, you’d spend 30 minutes telling them how the process will work.
With Time Based Techniques, the practitioner doesn’t stop the flow at all but simply uses the client’s physiology and other ‘spots’ to let them know what modality to travel back with and do it in the moment, utilizing a naturally occurring state!
I also loved the practice session in the afternoon. Within just 5 minutes, Nigel helped me to disentangle something and there was a beautiful (and still lasting!) opening in my mind. I look forward to further newsletters from you and to seeing you again in the future.”
So what can you do with Time Based Techniques?
The ability to be free from your past, create your future. You can make it so… with Time Based Techniques.
As an application of NLP, Time Based Techniques are a collection of protocols 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 John Overdurf, Time Based Techniques enable you to eliminate many types of issues in your past, thus allowing you to move forward toward your goals and desires.
Years of development and successful work with clients have resulted in Time-Based Techniques becoming known worldwide. They are a revolutionary new approach that has become so popular because of its ability to create quick, long-lasting results.
Time Based Techniques – a new revolution
Time-Based Techniques are becoming more and more popular in the field of cognitive behavioural psychology among therapists and organizations. They are slowly and quietly become a widely used technology in human potential, personal growth, psychological treatment of various symptoms and disorders, as well as in the business community, to re-direct businesses toward increased success.
Using time as a base for working with clients, I was amazed at the results I had from treating Megan, a six-year-old for Asthma that she’d had for three years. After only two hours using this technique, we had cleared her of the ailment. This is what her mother Christine, had to say:
”I have been heartily recommending your practice wherever I go… the world needs people like you!”
Christine Wilson, Maidenhead
There is no absolute requirement for content (story/history) to release negative emotions and for removing old unwanted beliefs. This allows the client to let go of their problem gently and easily.
So how do Time-Based Techniques work?
Time-Based Techniques are based on guiding the client to their own learnings that are always there to replace the problem.
This leads the client to be empowered to do the techniques successfully, have the experience of doing it themselves, and have the permanent experience of the emotion or limiting belief being banished forever.
Time-Based Techniques work very quickly. The approximate time required to get a result for a client with different forms of therapy are as follows: –
- Freudian – 100 hours to five years!
- Behavioural – 10 weeks
- Ericksonian – 15 hours
- Time Based Techniques – 2 hours or less!!
It appears the destiny of humankind to move more rapidly through these next phases. As a computer science and technology move on, here is the equivalent set of tried and trusted methodology to take therapy into the 21st Century.
Who will benefit from Time Based Techniques Training?
If you are interested in Achieving Professional Excellence, NLP and Time Based Techniques can help you achieve, maintain and enhance excellence. Senior staff, managers, and human resource personnel use these techniques to develop strong teamwork and relationships and to foster positive interpersonal skills. Negotiations and problem-solving sessions are enhanced to create solution-oriented, win-win approaches. Salespeople learn how to deal with their own limiting beliefs, therefore being able to concentrate on their client’s wishes. They learn how to build deep levels of rapport, learn how to be aware of another’s world, so the dance can take place making the sales relationship long-term and mutually satisfying. Presenters and Educators learn new paradigms for inspiring and engaging students, as well as effective techniques for dealing with challenging learning environments. Therapists learn new skills and techniques that supplement their repertoire, and gain additional insights into helping clients make the changes that support their own process of healing. Medical Professionals learn techniques to better elicit information from clients and to help the client be more comfortable with and receptive to treatment, thus supporting them to heal gracefully and holistically.
Training in Time-Based Techniques is currently offered as part of the NLP World Seven Day NLP Practitioner Training Course.
