Inner Space turns two today. It is a delightful feeling for the whole team here. Not just because we have done well and these two years of psychotherapeutic work as a counselling center have been extremely fruitful, but also because we have been able to do good work that we are happy about. But that is about us. Inner Space is not only about its team, it is about all of you who visited us, shared with us, read our posts or connected with us in some way-online or offline. I want to deeply thank you for this connection and for being with us in these two years.
Occasions like these are always a time for me to pause and look back at the road that has been travelled. Malini (whose soothing voice I can hear at the moment gently and patiently whispering into the phone answering enquiries about therapy) and I plan to sit together, along with cups of our favourite flavoured green tea and revisit the year that has passed. We hold Inner Space and all our therapists close to us in spirit and invite you to be with us and share this space with us as we select some pieces that we feel were most meaningful and among our favourites in 2012.
