Welcome to Bloom in Wellness! My name is Baylissa and I am a qualified, licensed therapist, coach and author. As someone who has experienced and healed from prescribed drug withdrawal and who lives healthily with two chronic medical conditions (dystonia and hypothyroidism), I offer a perspective where the focus is on being as well as possible in mind, spirit and body, no matter what.

If you are experiencing prescribed drug withdrawal, you will find a wealth of resources in the Withdrawal Help section. If you are recovered from withdrawal or you live with a chronic illness like dystonia, fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s, chronic fatigue syndrome, etc., please visit the Wellness section. The Self-Care and Nurturing section is for everyone and offers techniques and self-care tools to make the healing journey lighter.

Membership of this website costs £10 monthly (aprox. US$12.95) and includes being a part of the private Positive Pastimes community on Facebook where we have a good time sharing healthy distractions, and you will also receive a daily message of encouragement from me straight to your email inbox, first thing every morning. For members who want to discuss symptoms and how best to cope, you are invited to participate in our weekly live webinars and Q & A sessions via the Bloom in Wellness Bootcamp group.

If you would like to learn more about my background, please visit the ‘About’ page.  

I hope you will enjoy this safe space and oasis of calm that has been created to give you hope while you heal and to help you live your best life, regardless of your challenges.
