Don't Go Through Withdrawal alone. Join Us.

Book A Coaching Session

Hello, I’m Jennifer

Like you, I trusted my doctor and suffered a chemical brain injury from the benzodiazepine that I took as prescribed.

Now seven years off the drug, I educate people worldwide about benzos, as well as help them learn to cope with withdrawal symptoms.

If I can be of any help to you, please reach out.

I’m here for you,
Jennifer Leigh, PsyD

Acceptance Workshop

(How To Suffer Less)

Mondays And Wednesdays 
 July 15th through August 9th

9 A.M Pacific

 If you’d like to take a deep dive into learning about acceptance (which will help you suffer less!) this workshop is for you. Acceptance helps us cope with the symptoms of benzo withdrawal and cultivate a better attitude about our situation and life in general.

The coursework is posted daily on this website and we will meet via a closed private Facebook group for a live discussion at 9. A.M Pacific Mondays and Wednesdays. I’ll be teaching acceptance based on social neuroscience (Polyvagal Theory) and spiritual practices.

If you miss a live connection in the Facebook group, the video of it will be posted for your convenience.  

The cost of this four-week workshop (which includes 6+ hours of live connection) is $79.

If you are off of your benzo, this journal will help you to keep track of your healing. You can make notations about your sleep, diet, exercise, distractions, spiritual practices, and more. A page of prompts helps you fill in your information quickly, and the proceeding blank page gives you room for your thoughts, sketches, doodles, etc. Be as creative as you’d like. There is also a section for doctors, therapists, and friends and family should you wish to share. I wish you all the best on your healing journey!
