Doing What Works

Doing What Works for peace of mind by sharing a simple method that anyone can use to untangle difficulties in work, love, family or community.

Learn a practice of Self-Inquiry that will allow you to access the wisdom that is inside of you. Doing What Works to find your smile again if people or circumstances disappoint you.

 Working with Tammy …

Tammy brings a simple method of Self-Inquiry to anyone with an open mind, undoing what’s in the way. We know that stress and worry are futile, yet how do we stop? The Work is the How.

Doing What Works

Tammy facilitates others with compassion and understanding. She will question you to find your own answers. Advice is not what you are looking for, as it will only continue to have you seek answers outside of yourself. Self-Inquiry is how you can access all the wisdom that you seek within you. You know that you don’t want anyone telling you what to do – yet sometimes the answers seem so impossible to find.

The Work of Byron Katie, is a simple method to find your own answers within. Simple questions guide you to your own truth. As a facilitator of this practice, Tammy provides a space and her experience of The Work to assist you to sit in the practice and move you towards Self-facilitation.

“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 hopeless. 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.”  

Byron katie

When there is no internal struggle within yourself, you are at Peace with you – exactly as you are, with others – exactly as they are and with the world – exactly as it is.  

The Work of Byron Katie

The Work of Byron Katie, is a method now being used by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide.

The Work of Byron Katie is an experiential modality, in which stressful thoughts are identified, expressed and questioned, resulting in an awareness of projective identification. It can be a daily practice.

The Work of Byron Katie

   The Work is a way to understand what’s hurting you, and to address the cause of your problems with clarity.  All you need is an open mind and a willingness to look within. 

The Work of Byron Katie is a practice – not a quick fix.

It is an ongoing and deepening process of self-realisation. It is a practice to support you throughout your life whenever you experience a stressful thought. You will never speak to anyone more often than you speak to yourself in your head. The Work offers a way to live with a kinder mind.

Byron Katie Quote

The Work  is a simple, yet profound, process of Self-inquiry, consisting of four questions and a method called Turnarounds. It is a way to meet your mind with understanding, rather than attempt to control or change it.    

The Work: An Effective tool for Mental Wellbeing

Research shows “The Work of Byron Katie” (IBSR) is an effective tool for wellbeing and a way to reduce burnout.

Since the beginning of time, people have been trying to change the world so that they can be happy. This hasn’t ever worked, because it approaches the problem backward. The Work gives us a way to change the projector-mind-rather than the projected. It’s like lint on a projector’s lens, we think the flaw is on the screen, and we try to change this person and that person, whomever the flaw appears to be on next. But it’s futile to try to change the projected images. Once we realise where the lint is, we can clear the lens itself. This is the end of suffering, and the beginning of a little joy in paradise!

” Thank you for a freeing session on Tuesday. I feel like a weight has been lifted off me.”

Mother of two boys and Business owner.

“I first met Tammy in one of my Workshops over 10 years ago.  Since the beginning Tammy has been passionate about The Work and made it an integral aspect of her life and living.  She has clearly born the fruits of her commitment.  She is a joy-filled inspiration and a gift to work with. Her  authenticity shines.  I am excited and delighted that she has decided to share this gift (The Work) with others.”

Rosie Stave, Certified Facilitator – The Work of Byron Katie  

Through meeting with the Fluro Friday group in Woolgoolga I had been recommended this lady called Tammy Reid who ‘could help me work through my difficult thoughts’. I called her we had a phone conversation and then we started doing The Work. The great thing about doing the work is that it has helped me come up with my own genuine answers to the things which I have perceived to be problems. I has also opened my eyes to a lot of unconscious ways in which I was identifying myself, which was causing a lot of suffering. The best example of this is that I had for a very long time identified myself as an anxious person, now there has been a shift to my understanding that I am a person who sometimes experiences anxiety and thus I have seen a big improvement in my mindset. The effects from doing the work can in some cases  be observed instantly, but there have also been a lot of cases in which I have noticed being less effected by previous triggers further down the line. It has enabled me to free up so much energy to concentrate into far more worthy places in my life than the self destructive behaviours I had found it so difficult to break free from. I would recommend the work to anybody, It has helped me to improve my sense of self, what I really want for my life in so many aspects and how to waste less time on things which do nothing but cause me suffering.”

Matt Tanner, Artist

“Really appreciate your extended meeting and different approach.  So good to meet people who are top of their game, can run a discussion like that and mould it to suit the emotions/needs on the day, instead of following a set script. You need to know your stuff for that. Still a ways to go, but am loving the start.  Thanks again, and I look forward to the future… which I thought was pretty set in… and now see it evolving.. exciting!”

Business Owner, Husband, Father of Two Boys.

“Thank you so very much for helping me, not just during our sessions, but for ALL the care, support and interest you have shown me over the past few weeks.  It has meant so very much to me I can’t tell you.  Thank you for all the links and support and for being there for me.  Bless you.  My sincere love and best wishes to you.”

Online Client, London.

“I just wanted to thank you for the workshop.  It was so beneficial to be in a circle of women who were so open about the challenges they face on a daily basis.  It helped me to put the challenges in my own life into perspective and know there are other Mums out there with whom I have that mutual understanding and who I can connect with. I can see how The Work is a lifelong practice.  It was great to have a taste of the effect it can have.  In the last exercise in particular, I felt a sudden jolt when I had the deep realisation that my belief (‘I am not good enough’) is not true. I am still integrating that and working out what it means for me in daily life.  It can feel overwhelming and scary to step into the light!  Thanks for the very open, organised way that you facilitated.”
