Creator of Neuro Linguistic Tapping
Hello and welcome, my name is Tim Robins.
I help people to change the way they are thinking and feeling, so that they can get more out of life. I do this using powerful techniques from the field of Energy Psychology that work directly with the subconscious mind.
I don’t believe that therapy or coaching sessions should be serious or heavy. Effective, certainly. But serious and heavy? Certainly not. Most people already carry excessive worry and tension, so I prefer to make my sessions more energised, uplifting and at times humourous.
Many clients are pleasantly surprised to discover how much laughter arises during my sessions.
My journey started with a Tony Robbins’ seminar
In 2002 I had the incredible experience of participating in Tony Robbins’ ‘Unleash The Power Within’ seminar. There I witnessed Tony inviting participants onto the stage where he proceeded to transform them out of suicidal depression or debilitating trauma into states of joy and liberation…in 30 minutes or less!
I was spellbound by what I was witnessing. My mind raced to try to make sense out of what I was seeing. I sat on the front of my chair, my eyes fixated on magician-like man on the stage, thinking, “How is he doing this? Is this staged? Can people really change so quickly?”
I later discovered that Tony Robbins was applying, amongst other things, techniques from the field of NLP. I returned home, got onto the internet and started searching for NLP courses!
One year later and I had successfully completed a thorough NLP Practitioner certification training.
I had learned lots of powerful NLP techniques for creating change in the mind. However, when friends started asking me to ‘do NLP’ on them I soon realised that I still had no clear idea of how to deliver a structured NLP session.
NLP in Chiang Mai Thailand
I felt so hesitant to use NLP that I didn’t actually charge a for a session until the summer of 2007 – 4 years after I became certified!
By this time I was living in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and I soon established myself as the local NLP guy to go to.
Truth be known, I found myself getting really nervous before sessions. My stomach was in knots of anxiety as I fumbled from technique to technique whilst trying my best to appear calm and in control.
My mind would be plagued with endless uncertainty over whether I had chosen the ‘wrong’ technique for this particular client with this particular issue. Not surprisingly afterwards I felt exhausted and somehow pleased the session was over!
Mark’s EFT session took me, quite unexpectedly, to a collection of repressed memories of being bullied as a young boy when at school. In just a couple of 1 hour sessions Mark helped me to release all of the pain, hurt and anger associated with these memories. By the end of the second session I had discovered an inner peace that I had never known before.
Mark’s EFT sessions also left me feeling empowered, incredibly free and highly motivated to add EFT to my own skill-set as a therapist. Upon returning to my home in Chiang Mai I resumed my NLP sessions. Suddenly I noticed that I no longer felt any anxiety or doubt before or during sessions. I was completely sold on EFT!
As I began to study and practice the techniques within EFT I discovered a wonderful simplicity that revolutionised my sessions. NLP + EFT swiftly proved itself to be a potent combination. My client’s reported faster and deeper changes from my sessions. My confidence grew as did my bookings.
Further training in Timeline Therapy then added a third dimension to my sessions; the use of physical space as a way to access points in time.
Creating NLT in Phuket, Thailand
From 2008 to 2013 I lived and worked in Phuket Thailand, offering my services through well known wellness and fasting centers such as Atmanjai, Atsumi Healing and Phuket Cleanse.
Working alongside these wellness centers enabled me to work with well over 2500 clients and to delivered over 3500 individual NLT sessions.
I have had the privilege of working with members of royal families, celebrities, CEOs of multinational corporations and individuals from six different continents.
Due to their busy timetable whilst participating in a cleansing program, most clients had time for just a couple of 1 hour sessions, or 3 sessions at the most, before they returned home.
Therefore I was constantly challenged to find ways in which rapid and lasting changes could be created in just a couple of 1 hour sessions.
This pressure encouraged me to constantly refine and polish my techniques again and again and again. I continually cut away any parts of NLP, EFT or Timeline that were excessive, unnecessary to create the desired changes within a couple of sessions.
My original NLP sessions used to last 90 minutes to 2 hours and leave me feeling utterly drained. Now, using NLT, I am able to help clients experience a significant and lasting break-throughs in just 50 minutes, sometimes less.
Perhaps most crucially of all, I come away from sessions feeling energised, excited and able to serve more clients.
Returning to England
In May 2013, after 8 incredible years of personal growth in Thailand, I moved back to Warwick, England.
My passion now comes through empowering other therapists, counsellors and coaches with NLT skills.
I am also working with UK based businesses to help them develop their people through coaching and training.
When I’m not coaching or training, I am devoted husband to an incredible wife and a very proud Dad to a small bundle of Light.
I invite you to investigate the NLT testimonials from both clients and NLT Practitioners who have trained under me.
