‘Tamika is a very gifted and special individual and an amazing therapist who
changed my life’
I was a busy working single mother with 3 children and a partner of 6 years
thinking I was juggling life well until one day I fell off a cliff into this
dark place I had never been before. I wasn’t aware at the time how I really
wasn’t coping with the pressures and stress of life and all of a sudden I
couldn’t concentrate, work or look after anyone, even myself and didn’t know
why I couldn’t stop crying.
My very first session with Tamika at a retreat was incredibly mind altering
and Tamika immediately found the source of my internal pain with her
intuition and beautiful presence which was the start of my amazing journey
to climb back out of the darkness and live life again like never before.
My partner and I are stronger and more in love then ever after I had thought
we were over, my children have learnt to respect me as an individual instead
of being a cleaner, money lender and taxi and I have learnt through Tamika
to take the pressure off myself without having to please everyone in my
life. I have taken back control of my life, introduced personal boundaries
and above all have learnt to always love and nurture myself.
For my fortunate meeting with Tamika and her ongoing guidance, love,
friendship and the inner peace I have discovered, I will always be eternally
Two and a half years ago my father passed away unexpectedly. Not only was I dealing with the
sudden loss and the grief which soon followed on a level I have never before experienced, I alsofound that situations and traumatic experiences from my childhood had been brought to the surface. At the time I was a first time mother of a two year old child and a loving wife and all of a sudden my life felt like it had been thrown into turmoil. I couldn’t see a way out of the enraging storm that I was battling from within.
Feeling helpless and knowing how much I needed help to cope with the situation, my husband went about the arduous task of finding someone I could trust and have confidence in to share my grief and confusion with so that I could find a way forward, and he was lead to Tamika. Two and a half years later I cannot comprehend the transformation within myself that has occurred because Tamika has been able to openly work with me on many levels so that I can begin a healing journey filled with peace, love and life. She is also helping me work towards a future that doesn’t need to have all the pain and suffering from my past, which I have kept part of me simply because I didn’t know how to deal with it.
Tamika is warm and caring and from my very first meeting I had no fear or resistance with opening up to her. She has also worked with me to improve my relationship with myself. The impact this has had on my relationships with family and friends has been huge for me.
I think back to the day that my husband was searching for the right person to help me, knowing how low and desperate I had become, and I count my blessings every day that we were lead to Tamika.
She has truly met her calling and I cannot recommend her enough if healing, transformation, inner peace and joy is what you are in search of.

What is Resource Therapy and how will I benefit from this therapy?
Resource Therapy was developed by Professor Gordon Emmerson combining his knowledge of psychology, advanced ego state therapy and his life work.
Resource Therapy very much aligns with Gestalt Therapy insomuch as it is based on the individual being made up of different parts and works towards integration of these parts. In Resource Therapy, these parts are called our Resources. We all have many inner Resources available to support us.
Often you will hear people say things like ‘there is a part of me that wants to do — and there is another part that does not want to —-. An example of this might be the part that wants to move forward and be motivated and there is another part that cannot be bothered.
The Pixar movie, ‘Inside Out’ is a very clever movie which gives us a lovely example of how sometimes one part can ‘take over’ and how all parts are necessary and have a role.
Using the metaphor of a bus and in that bus we have all of our different parts – the happy part, sad part, angry part, motivated part, fearful part etc, often due to life circumstances, one part, perhaps being the fearful or anxious part, gets into the driver’s seat and takes over.
Resource therapy allows you to work with that unwanted part (example, fear or anxiety) and support that part by bringing awareness onto the fact that part longer needs to hold onto whatever caused it to initially feel that way.
This is a very empowering process, as they can negotiate a more useful role for that part as well as bringing into awareness other underutilised parts that can be supportive, for example, the more trusting or calm part.
Some of the benefits you can gain from Resource Therapy are to:
- Build awareness
- Feel more integrated
- Feel more able to self support and regulate emotions
- Heal early trauma and wounds without being retraumatised.
- Feel transformed
- Feel more balanced
- Feel more connected with yourself
- Gain more acceptance of the different parts of you
Resource Therapy is a powerful, safe, direct and effective form of therapy which can support you to resolve behavioural issues in a fraction of the time compared most other therapies.
The recent Disney Pixar movie “Inside Out”
Inside Out is a very clever movie and provides a lovely example of how sometimes one part can ‘take over’ and how all parts are necessary and have a role.
Using the metaphor of a bus and in that bus we have all of our different parts – the happy part, sad part, angry part, motivated part, fearful part etc. and if you can imagine that one part, perhaps being the fearful part, gets into the driver’s seat and takes over. In Resource therapy we look at why that unwanted part is there (example, fear) and support that part by bringing awareness onto the fact that the part longer needs to hold onto whatever caused it to feel that way initially. It is a very empowering process where you as the client can negotiate a more useful role for the part. As an example of this, fear can keep you gripped and frozen (possibly for good reason if you have experienced early trauma). In Resource Therapy we give ‘fear’ a voice and acknowledge its role and why it has been there, possibly as a protective mechanism. Once that state or part is supported and cared for by way of accessing other internal resources, it can continue with its role of being ‘protector’ in a more supportive way.
Resource Therapy recognises all parts of the personality and acknowledges that they all have a role to play. All parts are valuable internal resources that make us the unique individuals we are.
Resource Therapy directly addresses the personality part that needs change. It is a powerful, safe, direct and effective form of therapy which can resolve areas of concern/behavioural issues in a fraction of the time compared most other therapies. Resource Therapy can assist with issues such as:
- Eating disorders
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
