October 4 - November 22

a 7 week online program to HEAL self-sabotage

What most people don't realize is that self-sabotage isn't a character flaw or personal defect. It's symptom of developmental trauma. What might be even more surprising is that everyone experiences some degree of developmental trauma in childhood.​

Trauma isn't limited to abuse, neglect, and near-death experiences. Trauma also includes much more subtle, complex experiences in childhood. Some are so common they're brushed off as normal, or even expected. The good news is, when we heal the trauma, the self-sabotage resolves itself. 

This program is a deep dive inward. We unearth the ways you changed yourself to accommodate your traumas. In this process we create space to unlearn the old patterns and beliefs that don't work for you anymore, and bloom into the person you've always known you could be.


Types of self-sabotage Bloom addresses

+People pleasing


+Difficulty setting boundaries


+Fear of commitment 

+Beating yourself up/being hard on            yourself

+Fear of success

+Not asking for help

+Unhealthy relationship patterns

+Self abandonment


+Under or over eating when stressed

+Choosing instant gratification over          long-term happiness

+Negative self-talk

+Rebelling against your own internal          goals or agendas, and more...


"I am blown away by this program. You left nothing undone or too light. You led us to the depths necessary for significant transformation and self compassion. This program provided the nurturing and validation we never received before, but so desperately needed. You taught us how to care for ourselves and acknowledge our inner children with unconditional love. To meet them, embrace them without shame or condemnation. To heal. I am forever grateful." - Gemma L.*

"Bloom was a revelation for me. The principles and concepts in the course provided a roadmap to a new level of self-understanding, to compassion for myself and others. The weekly exercises and coursework were not only fun, but accessible. No amount introspection or "self-help" is a replacement for the power of being a part of a group like this. Iris is a tremendous teacher, and I learned even more from my fellow participants by sharing our experiences. I could not recommend Bloom more to anyone considering it." - Lemarcus T.*

I received so much more than I ever could have expected from this program. Iris has a unique gift for creating and holding safe space, for gently encouraging you through the discomfort, and for identifying and detecting hidden wisdom that wants to reveal itself. If you're ready to release the shame and the self-defeating behaviors, then I hope you'll consider working with Iris and the Bloom Coaching Program. It was able to do for

me in 7 weeks what 30 years of traditional therapy could not. - Kristin H. *
