Bloom is a free, web-based support service run by Chayn. Designed for anyone who has experienced or is currently experiencing domestic or sexual abuse, all courses are packed with tailored information, guidance, everyday tools, and comforting words to cope with traumatic events. Our programme involves learning, reflecting, and processing how what we’ve been through may have affected us - all in a safe and empowering space. To guarantee privacy and safety, every participant remains anonymous without missing out on a group setting. You work alongside other survivors - just like you - with the chance to hear their thoughts and share your own at the end of the week. Bloom is customisable, meaning you can engage with additional content as much or as little as suits. Our messaging is also flexible; you can choose whether to receive course information via WhatsApp or on Telegram.
"I have gone to therapy but I don’t always want to talk about the abuse or my ex-partner. With your programme, I am not doing any talking but you are all giving me information, guidance, positivity, education and coping methods."
Learn about different boundary types and styles, how to identify toxic behaviour in others, and tools for recognising our emotional needs in relationships.
Explore body image, sexual desire, the trauma response, and coping mechanisms after sexual trauma, and rebuild a sense of identity with varied recovery tools.
Discover short- and long-term methods for managing anxious thoughts and physical symptoms of anxiety, through grounding techniques, journaling, and somatic care.
Here, we discuss abusive tactics, the science of trauma, and how abuse can affect our relationships, while empowering users to rebuild self-esteem.
