Tapas Fleming's Bio
TAT is one of the new power therapies that is producing dramatic
changes in trauma, stress, allergies, fear, self-esteem and promoting
Lee Pulos, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, Vancouver, B.C., 604-669-6979
Ive used TAT on an almost daily basis in my clinical practice...
on its own and interwoven with difference treatment modalities,
with a wide variety of clinical issues and ages. I find it particularly
helpful with longn term patients, traumatized adolescents and
young children. TAT presents a respectful approach to the total
person and has been as wonderful addition to my therapeutic repertoire.
Marilyn Deak, Ph.D., 302-475-4202
Ive been using TAT for about two years and I am very excited
about the depth of healing that can occur. It is a simple yet
profound healing technique.
Carina Z. Wagner, Sebastopol, CA, Licensed Acupunturist
TAT is an elegant treatment in that it is simple yet very powerful.
My clients have used it successfully for a range of difficulties
including trauma, problem emotional states, and limiting/faulty
beliefs. I consider TAT an indispensable tool for mind-body healing.
Helen Tuggy, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, 503-520-0912
TAT is fast, effective, and easy to combine with other therapies.
I find it especially good with early childhood trama. Combining
TAT with other techniques, particularly Thought Field Therapy,
I am moving clients through dissociative disorders more quickly
than I every could have imagined. My enthusiasm about TATs effectiveness
with my clients is second only to my enthusiasm about its effectiveness

TAT has enhanced my practice. I use it to help clients process
and resolve the pain attached to traumatic memories. One client
resolved his anger at his father for not protecting him from an
abuser who was a family friend in a matter of minutes. In the
ensuing weeks, he developed a close and honest relationship with

I have used TAT with great success in a variety of traumas such
as abandonment when given up for adoption, agoraphobia, sport
performance, fear, and relationship break-up. This technique has
resulted in a major shift and dramatic progress in therapy.
Heather Fay, M.D., 604-738-0042
Tapas is a creative, sensitive and systematic healer who is deeply
committed to teaching others. I have used TAT with medical doctors
and professionals, as well as with individuals skeptical of alternative
therapies. All have been profoundly affected and pleased with
the results. I have been a professional for 30 years and have
never encountered such a powerful clearing tool.
Roberta Roth, LCSW, 541-484-6986
I have found 95% success rate on SUDS (subjective units of distress)
for emotional/psychological distress. The emotions have included
sadness, anxiety, hurt, upset, tension, guilt and anger.
Phillip H. Friedman, Ph.D., Foundation for Well Being
I was once challenged by microbiologist, Bruce Lipton, to find
faster and more effective trauma treatments than were in use in
the early 1980s. His concern was at the cellular level. I was
trained first in Levels I and II EMDR, then in TFT, and more recently
in TAT and Process Healing. I have effectively used all three,
along with variations I have introduced. I believe that TAT enables
a person to assimilate and process previously unresolved trauma
rapidly. I have used it effectively for well over a year. I have
used it within the context of all kinds of trauma, ranging from
head injuries and motor vehicle accidents, through physical and
sexual abuse. As with EMDR, however, I believe that its use may
need to be in the hands of skilled clinicians, with skill in cognitive
I perceive TAT to be highly respectful of the individual who
guides the process and learns to be their own trauma specialist
and therapist. I welcome this gentnle and respectful technique
which can facilitate the healing process within us all.
H. Jane Wakefield, M.A., Registered Psychologist, Certified Trauma
Specialist Vernon, B.C.
I have used TAT on a wide variety of patient complaints: panic
disorders, depression, simple anxiety, as well as very complex
PTSD/incest treatment. In each case, TAT proved to be a powerfully
gentle tool, most profoundly with a woman raped during childhood.
We were able to reduce and resolve the trauma without dragging
the client through graphically painful memories that more traditional
approaches may pursue. TAT is a regular part of my practice. It
transforms without getting the patient stuck in torment!
Diane Kay Siegmund, M.A., Licensed Psychologist, 310-378-2318
I am a psychiatric social worker in private practice. I work
with individuals, couples, families and groups in a variety of
modalities. After taking the TAT training, I found that I could
immediately integrate it with the other therapies I employ. It
is very compatible and enhances therapies such as Thought Field
Therapy, Applied and Educational Kinesiology, Gestalt Therapy,
Transactional Analysis, Solution Focused Therapy, and Art Therapy.
TAT is helpful when working with couples to aid in identifying
and alleviating emotional blocks within a session and within a
relationship. It helps quicken the therapeutic process because
of its simplicity and effectiveness and is also a wonderful tool
to add to what therapists can offer clients to help themselves.
Ms. Niklas Ehrlich, B.A., B.S.W., M.S.W., R.C.C., 604-990-1584
I have been trained in EMDR, TFT and TAT. These are all powerful
techniques. TAT is my choice in many treatment situations, because
it is very effective with difficult cases, seldom triggers intense
emotions, is very simple to use, and can be easily taught to patients
for self-management of emotions. I have seen incredivle changes
in some of my patients when using TAT. I wouldnt be without it.
Garry A. Flint, Ph.D., Vernon, B.C.
TAT can be rapidly and profoundly beneficial. There have been
a number of clinical situations where TAT proved itself useful
after other treatment approaches did not seem to be successful.
