This Time Line Therapy®
& NLP Certification Class 2022


Attention Sales and Marketing Professionals, Counselors, Hypnotists and Inspiring Managers . . .



Would you like to earn two world-class certifications that will allow you to:

  • Better understand the way the mind works, so that you can help clients “reprogram” their minds to do, be, and have what they want?

  • Learn how to use the language of the mind that leads to behavior, so that you can achieve desired results for yourself and others?

  • Help your clients quickly release Negative Emotions (like Anger, Sadness, Fear, Hurt, or Guilt), delete Limiting Beliefs (like “I’m not good enough,” “I don’t deserve it,” or “I don’t think I can”), and Set Goals in their Unconscious Minds in a way that they will definitely happen? 

  • Rapidly achieve powerful and permanent hypnotic results with yourself, clients, and others — conversationally — using only light trance techniques(without any formal inductions)?

If you answered “yes”’ to any of these questions, then you will definitely want to sign up to complete two new certifications at the 2020 Heartland Hypnosis Conference, this April 26th to May 2nd in St. Louis, Missouri.
Now, for the first time at Heartland Hypnosis, you can become certified as a:

Become a Certified Time Line Therapy ® Practitioner

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, and education. 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.
