However, for those who are looking for more support Bloom does offer specialized therapy through our curated network of qualified therapists. When available, we encourage people seeking therapeutic advice to connect with a counselor or other professional. Many individuals who are working with a therapist use Bloom as a complementary tool for their overall healing.
What's the difference between therapy and coaching?
Coaches and therapists serve very different roles.
Our therapists are trained to help their clients understand, process, and heal from complex trauma, addiction, emotional, and attachment issues. They will help you dig in to the roots of the issue and give you the tools and safety to move through the pain, hurt, and intense emotions that sometimes will arise.
Our coaches are focused on your future. They're focused on helping your move forward by setting goals, keeping you motivated, and directing your experience on Bloom to ensure you're getting the most from the available resources.
Who are your therapists?
All of the therapists in our network are licensed and have been personally trained by our clinical team. We require an additional 12 weeks of training to become certified to work with our clients.
Our therapist training and certification assure true specialization in treating sexual addiction, betrayal trauma and their suffering relationships.
Who are your coaches?
All of our coaches are women who have been where you are. They've been through our program, worked their own recovery, and have completed an 8 week training by our clinical staff.

Does Bloom take a specific philosophical approach?
Bloom focuses on treating the trauma resulting from sexual betrayal. When trust and safety are broken through infidelity, the reaction is manifested in characteristics aligned with PTSD; namely depression, anxiety, flashbacks, recurrent nightmares, and avoidance of reminders of the event. We combine our clinically validated trauma research with proven therapeutic trauma recovery processes to restore peace, calm, and safety.
Does Bloom offer support for the betraying spouse or partner?
Yes, all of our therapists are trained and understand how to work with spouses and parters. Whether it's working on the relationship or issues with sexually based addictions our therapists are qualified to provide the help that is needed.
Additionally, spouses and partners are welcome to watch any of the videos courses on Bloom.
