Who we are
SafeSpace™ Institute, founded by Integrative Psychotherapist and Trauma Expert, Melissa Lapides, is an online based community and educational campus. We teach a comprehensive framework for psychological safety and trauma informed healing and practices based on the proprietary SAFE™ Method, a unique and experiential training, which is the foundation of our curriculum. Our belief is that optimal mental wellness is non-negotiable in this day and age and needs to be normalized and integrated into business and society as a whole.
What we do
OUR CORE PROGRAMS AT SAFESPACE™
Angela Marie, Coach
From personal experience, SafeSpace™ has been so transformative in allowing me to better understand how unhealed trauma has kept me from becoming fully me. As a coach, I can’t imagine helping lead other women into their greatness without knowing how to provide the love & safety needed to support them in their own healing journey through this work.
Mandy Harvey, Holistic Nutritional Practitioner
I worked with SafeSpace™ after I started to realize that my clients weren’t reaching sustainable transformations as a result of their trauma - specifically their trauma related to nourishing themselves. I wasn’t fully prepared to help them work through the root of their chronic health issues. This program has given me the tools that I need to hold my clients in a safe space where they can acknowledge and heal their trauma. Facilitation is amazing, Melissa and her team do a wonderful job of modeling what it’s like for a coach to hold safe space and compassion. I highly recommend it to all nutritional therapists and coaches. There’s so many people operating from a place of trauma.
Autumn Bensette, coach
As a coach who has been through my own trauma within the personal development & coaching industry, it was so important to me as I’m going out into the world to do coaching that I’m actually leaving my clients better than when they met me. I am so grateful to have the tools I learned from SafeSpace™ and really embody somatic healing. To feel seen, heard and ultimately transform at the absolute root cause. I highly highly suggest it this work. Every single coach should be trauma informed and should infuse the work SafeSpace™ teaches into every part of their business, sales and marketing. If you feel called you should take the leap, you will not be disappointed.
