Time Line Technique
Each one of us experienced some traumatic events in our past. Unless we deal with them in a healthy manner, they have potential to be a block for moving forward in every aspect of our lives.
Time Line Technique is a visual trauma resolution technique that enables us to identify negative experiences from your past and resolve them from the root cause. It’s a way of connecting with your past self so you can process traumatic events and remove the negative impact have on your life from now into the future.
How does Time Line Technique Work?
When we create a time line of your life, you’re connecting with your past self so you can process traumatic events. You’re looking at your life from start to finish so you can see what has happened. This shows you the negative experiences in your life that have an emotional impact. By accessing these events as a person who you are today, with all your current experiences, you can bring all the necessary resources into each experience where you needed them most, thus reframe them, process them and remove the emotional impact they’ve had on your life. By doing so, you can empower your past self in the experience itself and thus create a new, more powerful and confident version of yourself.
