How ideal or problematic is the way you store time in space?

'New discoveries about Time and space and how to transform patterns easily with Thought Pattern Management™'

This is the topic Fiona Sutherland, lead trainer of TPM Europe, wowed people with at the NLP conference in April 2016. After the first short discovery exercise, one delegate exclaimed “That was amazing - you’ve made it worth my while coming all this way to attend 3 days of conference.”

Fiona shared remarkable case studies from various TPM practitioners in UK and USA to illustrate how important it is to know and work with time space arrangements. They really can help or sabotage  and because we get used to our own its only when you appreciate how it can impact and experiment you come to realise what else is possible. 


Most people remain completely unaware of how they store time spatially

- yet it can have a remarkable effect on your motivation, if you feel safe or anxious, and how easily you can progress things. Language use gives some clues. We often talk about ‘putting the past behind us’ - and ‘moving forward’ - but it’s not as simple as this. Everyone is unique and the arrangement they have can change over time depending on how they store memories. Some people’s arrangements of time can be very problematic.

Sally Roberts TPM practitioner



TPM practitioners who work with 'Mental landscape' have found that the way some people store time has been found to cause blocks, self sabotage and even acute back ache

Sally Roberts, is a Physiotherapist as well as NLP and TPM practitioner.

Sally discovered that a pregnant woman with acute backache had her sense of the future going up inside the middle of her up into space. She felt very "all over the place" in her life.  Sally also worked with a man who’s heavy past was located on his chest and was pulling so much that he had to constantly strain his back muscles to compensate. Sally applied TPM principles to increase their flexibility and they changed their time space arrangement. In both cases - backache went!

Time space arrangement can be linked to unwanted compulsions including OCD, as Jared Fletcher, son of the developer of TPM found with someone who spent hours each day washing her hands and had no sense of time other than the present. After he negotiated with the recurring list she created a new strategy.  The compulsion stopped, the woman gained actual time for her life (no longer washing) as her spatial arrangement of past, present and future changed.



Is life flowing easily, do you have a clear sense of moving forward or do you (or your clients) feel a bit blocked, anxious, and that it’s hard work?

Becki Houlston an experienced TPM practitioner, NLP master practitioner and coach worked with someone who bust a gut for years working hard yet never moving forward. This was before she learned TPM. 5 years later with TPM tools up her sleeve, she was able to get to the source of the problem and it was all to do with where he was storing not only his future, but the goals and other things he was driven to achieve. After she worked with this with him he began moving forward and his business progressed so much he won awards.  

In more subtle examples, people report that they have goals but they are out of reach or there is something blocking them from getting there. These are all due to problematic time space arrangements that can be changed very easily - when you know how! Sometimes things move easily and sometimes you need to use more TPM principles to guide.
