  • What Is Her Space Support Circle (Women's Support Group) About?

    ‘Her Space’ is a weekly support circle which focuses on brining women and come together to understand and learn through others experiences as a women+ because she various roles in her life which impacts various aspects of her life.

    Her Space will be a safe environment where she can learn to emotionally regulate, mitigate feelings of pain and sufferings, understanding techniques and coping skills and most importantly, build a support network through peer-to-peer group.

  • What is your founding story?
    We, at EmptyCare value the importance of mental health and wanted to build solutions to alleviate the bottlenecks of mental health space. Our team consists of mostly independent women, who come from finance, business and healthcare backgrounds. We curated and laboured ‘Her Space’ to bring support to women+ from all walks of life. We want to hold a safe and non-judgemental space for women+ to come and share their experiences of struggles, love, sadness, victories and learn from collective setting.
  • Who are the facilitators behind Her Space Support Circle (Women's Support Group)?
    Sadhana Singh (she/her), a queer affirmative counselling psychologist/psychotherapist. She has assisted women who were dealing with low self-esteem, gender prejudice, and marital concerns. She is a skilled facilitator of group discussions for women who get together to navigate complexity and share knowledge to advance what matters most. By maintaining the neutrality to honouring the wisdom of the circle and being future focused, she holds onto the agenda of the circle. During her practice, she came across many women who were unable to find a safe space with likeminded women to hold conversations or simply vent. Therefore, she is focused to make ‘Her Space’ a large safe space for women + to find peace and friendship.

    Notes: The above information may change from time to time, and is shared with you to understand the background of where the support group comes from.
  • When was your support group founded? How has the journey been since then?
    The circle was founded in the 1st week of December by women who came from different backgrounds like finance, business and healthcare and wanted to spread support to other women who would benefit from the space. Receiving testimonials of gratitude at the conclusion of each session has always encouraged us to keep working toward them and reinforced our belief in the job we perform. From each and every story we are learning, growing, evolving to do better with each session and create a positive impact.
  • Who is your support group for?

    We understand each new participant’s objective from the session which can include venting out, emotional support, community, reflection, solution driven approach, reflection, learn from others, recommendations. Her Space refers to a place where we can go when we’re feeling vulnerable or confused, where we can rant or cry for as long we need to, or where we can talk and share patiently until a plan of action starts to emerge from the turmoil.

    Our vision is to bridge the gap in mental health space that is mainly attributable to social stigma, distrust, lack of qualified professionals and affordability. We hope and intend to provide the space and resources to foster an individual’s mental health. Our intentions are so provide a safe with:

    • Conversation with psychologist • Peer support • Venting out • Reflection • Activity based • Healthy Coping mechanisms • If needed, therapy session for individuals who want to start the journey with a verified Counselling Psychologist.

  • Explain your group's approach towards helping a person's mental health care.

    We have mental health professionals who are trained to provide counselling, treatment, and rehabilitation. As the facilitator is a qualified Counselling Psychologist, she can offer professional help to any participant. If the concern falls out of the purview of the current facilitator, she can refer the participant to another mental health professional from EmptyCare platform who could be more suitable for them.

    EmptyCare has a growing network of psychologists, counsellors, social workers, life coaches, marriage counsellors, etc. Our therapists will offer a safe space to the participant allowing them to speak their truth, counsel and help them reflect. We have Therapists of varied experience, diversity, and specialisation.

  • What is your group's approach towards professional mental health care interventions?

    Her Space supports all and every kind of conversation, however, if the facilitator senses a deeper need of intervention they would intervene and attempt to diffuse the situation as psychological first aid if the nature of the situation is at high risk level EmptyCare is not equipped to handle emergency situations.

  • What conversations is your support group not equipped to support?

    Eg: Some groups or facilitators may not be comfortable or trained to support conversations on suicide, self-harm, or other specific areas of concern. It’s okay and important to clarify these aspects to potential participants.

  • Walk us through the average format of your group session.
    Her space initiates with introduction and check in, followed by conversations through activity or prompts and concluding with the learnings and resources. The support circle initiates with an interactive check in, fruitful and insightful conversations with the entire group and giving a platform for women+ to share their experiences. Another reflective activity is optional depending on the theme of the circle. Finally, the circle concludes with key take aways, body scan mediation and check outs.
  • What are your home rules/values?
    This is a mutual self-help group, not a therapy group. Hopefully, this group will provide emotional psychological, and moral support for its members. Each of us is encouraged to participate to whatever extent we feel comfortable. The following ground rules facilitate the development of trust in the group and enable us to share our thoughts and feelings with each other. • Expectations around confidentiality: “what you say in the room, stays in the room”; anything said or noticed in the room will not be repeated or discussed at another time or place • We try to accept people, just as they are, and we avoid making judgments. This support circle is a safe, non-judgmental and meaningful space for women to speak about their concerns • We are here to share our own feelings and experiences; we try not to give advice • The topics for the next week would be shared in the previous session, accordingly you can prepare for it • We try to give everyone an opportunity to share. Each woman will be given the platform to share their concerns • We each share the responsibility for making this group work • Openness and respect: group members are expected to listen to each other without interrupting, take turns speaking, and speak without judgment or giving advice; by the same token, choosing not to speak is also respected • Language: group members are expected to avoid language that would offend • Promptness: meetings will begin and end on time • The group would encourage to show respect and support to all the members • We give supportive attention to the person who is speaking and avoid side conversations. We avoid interrupting. If we do break in, we return the conversation to the person who was speaking • We have the right to ask questions and the right to refuse to answer • We do not discuss group members who are not present Note: Even though our goal is to support each person, this group may not meet your needs. Before deciding this group is not for you, however, we hope you will attend at least two meetings.
  • What do you hope for participants in your group to take back with them after a session?
    • Each women+ will have different take aways from the circle. However, our goal is that each women+ expresses & feels heard, they stop and feel, and grow and connect with each other. • We promote talking openly and honestly about their experiences in a safe and confidential space and discover more about themselves. • We encourage sense of empowerment, esteem and control by enhancing and developing healthy coping skills
