Welcome to the ‘Bloom in Wellness’ website. I hope the information and self-care tools provided here will help to make your journey to recovery lighter and more manageable. This site offers a wealth of resources that are known to be useful to those affected by benzodiazepine, antidepressant and opiate withdrawal, their families, doctors, counsellors and others who provide care.

Be sure to check out the Video Library, the Meditations and Reflections, information on Symptoms and  Coping and Self-Care, section for Relatives, and everything else shared here. Membership of this website also includes receiving a daily message of encouragement  from Baylissa, to your email inbox every morning as well as being a part of the private Positive Pastimes community on Facebook.

If you would like to learn more about me and my background, please visit  the ‘About’ page.  If your purpose for visiting is to book a withdrawal support consultation, please visit the ‘Appointments’ page. 

I hope you will enjoy this safe space and oasis of calm that has been put together to empower and encourage you while your healing continues to take place.

With warmest regards,
