Safe Space was created by Kimberly Day, LMHC, CCPS to support women who are experiencing, and who are healing from, destructive and confusing patterns in their relationships.
Based on real life experiences and therapy practices, content was created to educate women and to encourage them in becoming more discerning of what is true in their relationships, and more empowered in their personal choices. Other therapists, coaches and professionals have contributed content designed to support women in many different ways as they navigate their course forward.
Goals of Safe Space
- To Build up women to be more discerning of what is true in their relationships and more empowered in their choices
- To Build more awareness around the cultural values that maintain and promote the exploitation of women in relationships and to advocate for change
- To Promote healthier relationships with self and others through courage, compassion, and integrity
Safe Space is set up like an ‘Inn’ or a Peaceful retreat,
which various rooms focusing on the different domains of well-being
This is a great place to start your journey! This room begins by introducing principles and ideas for identifying patterns in your own relationship and provides worksheets and instruction to walk you through that process.
The Kitchen represents the Physical domain. We will help you develop or fine tune your own Self Care plan and understand why it is so important. We also explore the unhealthy dynamics of intimidation and threat, and what to do about it. Safety Planning is an important part of this space, if there are any concerns at all about physical safety.
The bedroom represents the sexual domain. Therein we explore principles of healthy intimacy and sexuality, as well as various forms of unhealthy sexual dynamics. This is an important place to allow plenty of space for yourself to feel and learn if you have experienced any form of those unhealthy dynamics, and so we also have a section on fostering healthy intimacy and sexuality to help you move into healthier ways of being in this domain.
The Office represents the Financial Domain. Here we celebrate your goals and aspirations and ask you to explore them! We also explore what it can look like when there is Financial Abuse in the relationship.
The Chapel represents the Spiritual domain. In addition to understanding and identifying spiritually abusive patterns if they exist, we hope this space allows you to explore alternative meanings behind spiritual and religious ideas if you have had religious ideas misused, or used against you, in your past.
The Bathroom represents the Emotional and Relational Domains. Here you will work on your own relationship with yourself, as well as delve more deeply into identifying healthy versus unhealthy relationship expectations and patterns.
This room is designed to foster a sense of connection and to build your confidence that you are not in this alone. Here you can get to know the contributors of Safe Space a bit better, as well being about to connect with and join conversations with other members of Safe Space. You can also learn from and enjoy the “little wins” you and others are having as we celebrate each other’s successes.
This room is so fun! It is all about understanding and improving your own internal responses. We have grounding exercises, somatic exercises, guided imageries, meditations and…. (drum role please)…. some incredible Yin Yoga practices by a very talented and truly caring instructor!
The gallery is designed to encourage women to express their voice and represent their lived experience through creation. You can “tour” the Gallery to see what others have created to express themselves. What do you resonate with? What pieces mirror your own experience? Have you also felt, or experienced, what the artist is capturing? You can also submit their own artistic creations, whether it is music, art, poetry, dance videos, etc.- to share with others.
