Tamika joins Therapy Pro’s Brisbane North team as an experienced Occupational Therapist. “I truly believe in everyone having strengths, in spite of what society may say are ‘unfortunate’ circumstances. Everyone is much more than a diagnosis on paper and a background history.  I want to know about the people I will work alongside from them, their journey, their passions and ultimately what they want to achieve in life.” says Tamika.

How can you support people?

A therapy session will focus more on functional restoration, this may consist of strengthening, performing the task a different way, using adaptive equipment, or modifying the environment to get the job done. This work helps the client to gain or regain independence, whether they are a child born with developmental delays, a worker with a spinal injury, or an older adult who has survived a stroke.

How does your background shape the way you work?

I want to help people regain their independence, take back their confidence and be advocates for their lives, all the while being beside them as an advocate and support. I have seen how not being given a fair go, or told ‘well that’s the way it going to be’ can have an impact globally on ones wellbeing from both personal and family experiences. This ignited a passion for encouraging and enabling others to pursue meaningful occupations.

What is your approach to working with people?

Together, through client-centred and tailored evidence-based practice we will work towards those goals all whilst not forgetting the small steps it takes to get there, and celebrating those too. I want to work where the work needs to be done to be as functional as possible, whether that be at home, the school the local stores, parks or station.

Tamika is a Graduate of University of the Sunshine Coast.
