The TAM Group Therapy Program

We are currently taking bookings for our TAM Group Therapy Program at Modbury South Australia,  which has been especially designed for people with disabilities and mental health conditions who experience anxiety or depression.



Nothing makes a human feel more alone than being socially isolated while surrounded by others. For many people living with mental illness and disabilities, their daily challenges  lead to emotional ups and downs that can undermine their efforts to build and maintain relationships.  Struggling with daily anxiety, depression and chronic lack of confidence many people isolate themselves and give up on their goals, dreams and inspirations.


But it doesn’t have to be this way.


The TAM Group Program, Therapy and Movement for Self Improvement, is one of the most important offerings we have ever developed because it helps people who face anxiety, depression and mental health challenges to develop greater confidence, skills, and strategies to constructively manage the fluctuations of their emotions, enabling them to improve their ability to connect with other people.


And this rewarding and enjoyable process all takes place within the supportive, non-judgemental atmosphere of a therapeutic group.


What happens in the TAM Program?


In the TAM or Therapy and Movement for Self Improvement Program at Modbury, South Australia, group participants practise a wide range of contemporary CBT, relaxation, guided visualisation and mindfulness strategies to facilitate their interpersonal and emotional growth.  These strategies assist them in addressing anxiety, depression and mental health challenges and learn how to regulate their thoughts and emotions in a way that is more beneficial to their emotional wellbeing.


Learning in sessions is facilitated by:


  • mutual support and teamwork
  • sharing and exploring real life experiences
  • role playing and practical rehearsals
  • modelling and positive reinforcement
  • group coaching
  • group games and activities
  • use of audio – pictorial tools
  • engaging in a constructive feedback and self-evaluation
  • engaging in artistic exploration activities such as painting, drawing, colouring, storytelling, creative writing, acting, listening to music, singing and creating sounds using simple musical instruments

In our clinic at Modbury South Australia, all TAM Program participants are supported to develop their personal resources in:


  • stress management
  • confidence building
