    About our courses

    Bloom courses offer tailored information, tools, and affirming words to help us cope with trauma. They encourage us to learn, reflect, and process what we’ve been through and how it may have affected us–all in a safe and empowering space.

    Society, patriarchy, and sexual trauma

    We don’t experience sexual trauma in isolation from the world around us. Here, we’ll identify victim-blaming stigmas and myths, look at how these prejudices might have affected our healing journey, and understand how sexual violence is facilitated by both individual predators and patriarchal power structures. Together, we will relearn that it is never the survivor's fault.


    Image-based abuse and rebuilding ourselves

    In this course, we look at why and how image-based abuse happens and the impact it leaves on our lives. We focus on our healing and on rebuilding ourselves after this abuse. We explore the social context of image-based abuse and learn tools for processing our emotions, understanding our responses, and healing from trauma. We remind ourselves that we are not to blame.

    Recovering from toxic and abusive relationships

    Abuse can happen to anyone - and it’s never the survivor’s fault. In this course, we discuss abusive tactics, the cycle of coercive control, the science of trauma, and how abuse can affect our boundaries, relationships, and coping mechanisms. We empower ourselves to build positive self-esteem with tools such as journaling, somatic practice, and community.

    Reclaiming resilience in your trauma story

    Trauma can leave us with many different complicated emotions, fears, and concerns. Based on narrative therapy and journaling techniques, we explore how to identify triggers, understand the science of trauma, re-build self-esteem, work through shame, and recognise the ways we’ve already been resilient.

    Healing from sexual trauma

    We know that the healing journey isn’t always a straight line. In this course, we’ll identify how sexual trauma can affect our body image, sexual desire, emotions, stress response, and more. We’ll also explore different trauma-informed recovery tools, including journaling exercises and somatic care, to bring forward in our journeys of recovery.
