Become a Certified Time Line Therapy® Practitioner 

Time Line Therapy® is an advanced NLP and Hypnotic Technology that, like NLP, has been widely used around the globe for ~40 years to help people overcome traumas, release negative emotions, and delete limiting beliefs, as well as set goals in their Unconscious Minds in a way that they will definitely be achieved.

Time Line Therapy® techniques are the latest developments in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). They are unique and unmatched methods for creating powerful client changes in therapy, business, education, health coaching, athletic performance, and more. These techniques utilize a person’s own internal “Time Line” to work with their unconscious minds in a variety of ways; including, releasing emotional traumas and eradicating unwanted thoughts, emotions and behaviors, as well as setting and achieving goals.

Time Line Therapy® has been so successful in its results that it has been utilized since 1986 by thousands of people including psychiatrists, psychologists, marriage and family counselors, social workers, life and business coaches, and even athletic coaches.

A person’s “Time Line” is how he or she unconsciously stores memories and knows the difference between a memory from the past and a projection of the future. People don’t change consciously. Instead, all behavior, learning, and change happens in the Unconscious Mind. Time Line Therapy® 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.

What You Will Learn in This Time Line Therapy® Training

When you attend this class you will learn how to help your client powerfully and permanently — typically in less than 20 minutes — release a major Negative Emotion or Limiting Belief like Anger, Sadness, Fear, Hurt, or Guilt, that has plagued them, sometimes, since childhood; including ones that are rooted in Significant Emotional Events such as trauma. Then you will learn how to help clients Set Achievable Goals and install them in their Unconscious Mind in a way that they will be achieved.

The specific collection of techniques called Time Line Therapy® produces long-lasting transformation very quickly and easily. The process is faster than what is currently called Brief Therapy. These powerful Time Line Therapy® techniques are becoming the method of choice to make fast, effective, long-term changes in behavior. 

Now, just imagine, after you attend these classes, you will be able to help your clients achieve amazing — seemingly miraculous — results for some of the most common presenting problems you will face as a hypnotist or coach

So, no matter what your profession or goals in life, you will benefit from attending these 7-days of certification classes and becoming certified in two of the most sought after and prestigious certifications in the world. By attending these classes, you can become both Certified NLP Practitioner and a Certified Time Line Therapy® Practitioner.

What’s the Schedule for These Two Certification Classes?

These classes will consist of two phases, as follows:

Phase 1: Pre-Study

After you register, you will be sent pre-study materials to complete before you arrive at class. These are: 

  • 20 hours of audios (mp3s) to listen to
  • The NLP Practitioner and Time Line Therapy™ Practitioner Manuals
  • Three books
  • A take-home test (open-ended, short answer questions)

Altogether, the Pre-Study Phase is rated to be about 60 hours of contact time with the materials.

You will be expected to complete the open book take home test and turn in your answers to the best of your ability by the first day of online, interactive classes. Your trainer will go over the test near the end of the course to make sure that you know the answers and how to apply then in a real NLP session with your client.

This means you will want to sign up today in order to have the most possible time to do the pre-study of the audios and readings. 

Phase 2: Online, Interactive Classes

Once you have completed Phase 1, you will let your trainer know and the two of you will schedule mutually convenient times to complete your online, interactive classes. 

This Phase is rated to consist of 60 hours of online, interactive classes, broken out at times that are mutually convenient between you and your trainer.  The two of you will work together to develop a schedule that will work for both of you. 

After completing these certifications, you will be given the opportunity to join the American Board of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and the Time Line Therapy™ Association and also receive certificates from these world-recognized organizations. This way you can actually receive four certifications as a result of completing these classes.  

Your Investment in Yourself

Whereas if you were to obtain these certifications through any other equally qualified trainer, you would expect to pay $8,000. However, when you sign up for this particular training, your investment will be only $6,000. 

However, you must sign up now because your trainer can only hold so many hours available to meet with students in the online, interactive classes.

Sign up now and reserve your place with only a $2,000 down payment and the balance paid over two monthly installments. (Note that the balance must be paid before completing the class.)
