Welcome to Safe Space

For 25 years, Safe Space has been a place where people find the courage to begin healing, the strength to take the next step, the voice to challenge their past, the joy of connecting to others, and the power to overcome toxic loneliness and shame.

Sexual abuse in childhood isolates survivors from their communities and convinces them that they’re ‘different’.

Here, we are all different, all unique, and we know that there’s no ‘one size fits all ‘.

Safe Space will be a place where survivors continue to find their unique path to healing for many years to come.

Following the impact of Covid-19 on NHS premises, we are no longer able to offer the same range of locations throughout Fife.  Our new outreach appointments take place in the Maxwell Community Centre, 70 Stenhouse Street, on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.  This building is easy to reach by both bus and train, has good parking, and is fully disabled accessible, as well as providing a discreet and confidential location due to the multi-purpose function of the Community Centre.

  

Groupwork

Alongside the 1:1 service, our therapeutic groupwork programme contributes towards greater self – awareness, empathic communication and assertiveness for participants, as well as offering an opportunity for the enjoyable shared involvement that can profoundly alter self-perceptions.

Through listening to client feedback over the past 25 years we have developed a programme that provides a pathway for survivors to the explore hidden issues affecting their everyday lives in a supportive and safe environment.

Lockdown and Website

During the 2020 lockdown, Safe Space adapted to new ways of working with our clients.    We explored video links with our groups, and invited clients to join us in making this website a living community of people’s creative experiences during lockdown by sharing their photographs, paintings, music, poems, or thoughts.    To see their contributions, please view our News page.
