Welcome to Bloom in Wellness! My name is Baylissa (Vynne) Frederick and I am a qualified, licensed therapist, coach and author. Based on my professional experience and as someone who has experienced and recovered from prescribed drug withdrawal (taken for a medical condition known as paroxysmal dystonia), I offer a perspective where the focus is on healing and 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, hypothyroidism, 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 includes access to the Helpline (I personally take calls for 6 hours on a Mon, Tue, Thur and Fri), 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 and you can join our Together We Heal support 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.
