What is EmpowerHer all about?

Details

What are our goals?

The period of young adulthood comes with its own unique anxieties, challenges, and experiences. With this group, we seek to offer a community of peers to empathize and resonate with, a place to find respite and solace from the everyday realities of young adulthood and an outlet for your feelings and thoughts, losses and triumphs.

Support groups function differently from therapy and are best seen as a way to find solidarity and empowerment via shared experiences. The format will be informal and loosely structured, with a focus on coping and community rather than therapeutic change.

Topics we will cover

  • Life transitions

  • Questions of identity

  • Loss

  • Newfound freedoms and responsibilities

  • Changing interpersonal dynamics

  • Other challenges and experiences unique to young adulthood

Meet Your Facilitator Swechcha Rai

Swechcha has a strong foundation in the humanistic and experiential lens. She cares greatly about the richness of people’s inner worlds and experiences great joy and humility when entrusted with the task of exploring them. She believes in the power of community, connection, and above all, authenticity.

Swechcha sees mental health as something that cannot be removed from its systemic and social context, and seeks to create a space where clients can show up wholly, without any compromise.

She is currently undergoing training in trauma-informed practices. Her approach is person- and process-oriented, non-pathologising, and intersectional.
