"As long as you think 
that the cause of your problems 
is "out there" - 
as long as you think 
that anyone or anything else is 
responsible for your suffering - 
the situation is 
 It means that you are forever
 in the role of the victim, 
that you're suffering in paradise. 
So bring the truth home to yourself 
and begin to set yourself free."

a reduction in depression / anxiety
less anger /reactivity

more peace

The Work is not a quick fix. It is an ongoing and deepening process of self-realisation.

BULLY PROOF: for Children aged 8-12



Eventbrite - BULLYPROOF: Resilience Program for children aged 8-12

BULLYPROOF is a program created by Tammy Reid to provide children with the skills to manage their own wellbeing when faced with bullying.

Tammy is an educator passionate about fostering independent thinkers who themselves have the tools to face adversity.  She facilitates a simple method in a group context in her private practice in the centre of Coffs Harbour.  This program can be delivered individually, to small groups or in a whole school context.

This simple method will allow your child to identify that no matter what happens they have the power to manage their own emotions. They will discover how to do this and realise for themselves during this experiential workshop that despite what may have happened they control their thoughts and feelings.

In weekly group sessions children will learn how to identify what they were “thinking” during or after a stressful “bullying” situation and discover the “cause” of their stress.

In the first session the children learn the method and take it into their lives for a trial run. The second session we debrief and go over the method, answering questions and fine-tuning. In the third and fourth sessions the children learn to facilitate one another and develop a network of friends they can call to practice what they have learnt.  The children then return to school and to follow up they are eligible for a free Individual Consultation 1:1 for 45mins with Facilitator, Tammy Reid, whenever life or someone disappoints them and they’d like a refresher.

Tammy is an extraordinary facilitator who works with individuals, couples, children, teenagers, teachers, businessmen and women, providing them with this process of Self-Inquiry, to untangle difficulties in life for their peace of mind.  Tammy’s genuine love for people is felt.  She facilitates with compassion and understanding in private practice in Coffs Harbour on the Mid-North Coast, NSW.
