Tam has been a qualified and registered physiotherapist since 1994. During this time she has worked with people suffering a variety of problems ranging from acute injury to long term persisting pain. She has worked with doctors and psychologists in world renowned clinics to guide multidisciplinary management of pain. In private practice for the last 10 years, she has used psychological (western and eastern) models to guide physical rehabilitation. In addition to years of experience integrating psychological principals into physical rehabilitation, she has attended many trainings and conferences in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
Tam has studied Yoga, Vedanta, Tantra and Buddhist based meditation with senior teachers in the United Kingdom, India and Australia. Periods of intense practice have allowed her to explore suffering and its value in the spiritual journey. She feels her main qualification to guide people who are suffering is through what she has realised in her own sadhana (practice).
