With videos and direct personal support, learn and heal from trauma in an anonymous, supportive space.
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.
With Bloom, you learn at your own pace. Our course sessions aren’t live: they’re pre-recorded videos, for you to watch whenever is convenient for you. But you’re still taking the course alongside other survivors - and alongside our team, who are here to support you along the way. Our messaging is also customisable; you choose whether to receive course information via WhatsApp or on Telegram.
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 share your thoughts and hear theirs at the end of the week.
"I work full time and am returning back to University in a few weeks so struggle to attend any face to face courses but this set up is perfect for me because I can do it in my own time. I really believe that I’ll find the two courses beneficial for my healing and for my mental health so thank you so so much, it truly means a lot."
Here's what to expect.
"Thank you so much to the Bloom by Chayn team. I absolutely love this course, the style, the exercises, the visualizations (which I sketch out), and the facilitators."
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.
"I enjoyed the check-ins at the start of every session; the real-life examples and the homework provided; and how each facilitator chimed in. I loved the messages that were being sent and how there was an accessible chat box that allowed me to share things with the Bloom by Chayn team."
