Dr Niamh On The Plum Tree

Childhood Imagination Sows Seeds of Future Brilliance

Healer Tammy Lang

Meet and Greet Tammy Lang with Dr. Niamh Clune

For much of her life, Tammy felt unseen and unheard.  Her passion for writing came about when she discovered she could give voice to her feelings and express her life-journey from abuse towards healing. Sharing her journey of hope and healing from childhood abuse is now Tammy’s life purpose. Women Overcoming Wounds, is the outreach support that Tammy offers through her book, websites and many campaigns with which, Tammy is actively involved.

Tammy Lang is one of life’s survivors.

The abuse began when Tammy was but three years old.  She was terrorised by her mother and sexually abused at knife-point by her step-father. As if that weren’t enough to contend with, nearly everyone who surrounded Tammy,  family, family friends and those in authority reinforced that abuse.  She grew up in a toxic environment, with no one to show her kindness or love. Abuse of that nature stays with you through adulthood. In Tammy, it showed through a devastating loss of self-confidence and volition, self-sabotage and self-hatred.  By the age of nineteen, she was suicidal.  As she set out to commit the act, a total stranger stopped on the side of the road to help. He offered genuine, unconditional kindness.  That one, simple act changed Tammy’s life forever…

Today the “ripple effect” of that act  resonates still in Tammy’s heart. She shares that story in her book, “Damaged Goods: Things You Must Know About Healing From Abuse.” The ripple effect is also in evidence on her websites: The Ripple Effect Legacy and also on her Facebook page. On these pages, she highlights individuals or groups that perform “ripples” as a way of spreading global change.

Although Tammy’s healing process has taken over twenty years of research, loss, and heartache, she finally managed to overcome her past and believes that, if she can do it, so can others. Her journey to wholeness began as she learned to love herself. Many victims of childhood abuse struggle with this foremost, usually overlooked step because, as Tammy knows: “They feel unworthy of love or feel we have to earn it.”

The greatest lesson Tammy could ever teach another is that if you do not love and accept yourself, you cannot give love to others. Tammy voices how, “Everyone deserves love. Everyone deserves to be heard. Everyone deserves to heal. No matter what our beginnings are, we all have choices to change at any moment and start anew. ”

    I wonder if that stranger on the side of road knows what a wonderful gift he gave? You are a brave woman, Tammy, to share your story. Very well done, Niamh.

    It takes monumental bravery and courage to put you life on the page when it contains such horrific experiences and then use those experiences to help others. Thank you!

    It breaks my heart to even think of our dear, sweet Tammy being abused in any way, but look at all the good this phenomenal woman is doing now. I’m so glad that Good Samaritan came to her assistance. I firmly believe that man was one of God’s angels in disguise.

    I pray that by Tammy sharing her story with others she will help many, many people… “Damaged Goods” should be in every household.
