It is being fearless and reaping the rewards of a meaningful life. But, along the way we begin to feel like we are losing control. We begin to ask ourselves who we are? And why do we act the way we do? sometimes even opposite to what we truly want. In all of this, we feel we are alone and a creeping sense of doom begins to engulf. This could play out in our relationships, parenting or at work.
Well, the first piece of good news is, we understand! We welcome you on this journey of discovery of “who you are”, and “why you are”, without judgment, but with love and acceptance of “I am”.
Life's greatest joy is in living fully and completely

Welcome to Safe Space
The big dream is for India to be suicide free. Suicidology says that suicide is rooted in deep emotional pain. The aim is to enable people to understand their pain and make sense of it, in order to emotionally regulate, heal, and lead happier lives. We believe by becoming trauma-informed in our approach to parenting, schooling, university life, organizations, and society – we will be creating safe spaces for individuals, children, young adults, and adults to thrive. We aim to do this by building awareness and educating individuals and families, so we can become compassionate support systems for each other.
We provide first responder training to families, institutions, colleges, schools, offices, and the mental health community.
Research shows that emotional pain comes from Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) and disturbed Attachment to the primary caregiver. It is an interplay of epigenetics, a relationship between genetics and the environment.
Our focus is on the environment. Unresolved trauma leads to the self-being experienced as “bad” and those feelings further lead to stress on mental health well-being. We are still not aware when this pain becomes pathological to manifest as mental illness, personality disturbances, and self-destructive behavior.
Research has shown that adults who experienced toxic childhoods (sexual abuse, emotional neglect, physical abuse, emotional abuse, critical parenting) develop a maladaptive coping mechanism that results in a range of negative thoughts and patterns that can become pathological and manifest itself in the form of destructive behaviors, addictions, depression, anxiety, personality disorders and more.
We believe by understanding and acknowledging what we have gone through, we can begin to develop an understanding of ourselves, accept ourselves, and begin healing.
At an early age, children are completely dependent on their parents for care, nurture, and protection.
Consequently, the kind of relationship they develop with their parents become a reference point for their interactions with the people around them.
When a child goes through emotional pain or distress as a result of:
negative experiences in their relationships like neglect, violence, and abuse or
overwhelming external events like war, natural disasters, and loss of a parent; it is labeled as ‘Childhood Trauma’.
Trauma from something done to a child - for example, sexual abuse or violence
Trauma from the omission of actions necessary for the development of the child – for example physical and emotional neglect.
Trauma because the child’s parent is suffering from their own trauma – for example, a parent who has a mental disorder.

We focus on areas of psychology, trauma, and attachment that lie at the root of emotional pain and facilitate its recovery for a nonclinical population. Safe Space is a unique endeavor as it brings together a powerful set of psychologists and theories with a mix of Buddhist spiritual teaching at its roots. It is a journey of self-compassion, with the aim of reconnecting to our own selves, our world, and our people.
Our e-courses aim to address a population that seeks to take steps to establish a sense of self-identity, answer the question “who am I?” and lead fulfilling lives. While these courses help you go inward and support the journey of self–discovery, it is not therapy and can not be substituted for it. We would recommend it for those curious to know themselves.
