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

Mornings With Jenn
Support Group

 

Want more support as you navigate your way through benzo withdrawal? Join me for a live video
Monday through Friday, 9:15 a.m. Pacific at my closed Facebook page, Mornings With Jenn. Can’t join us at that time? No worries. All the live events are recorded and archived.

The group will be a place of positive focus. (It will not be a place to focus on symptoms or to spread fear and doubt.) I’ll discuss whatever topics people ask most about. I’ll also share some of the spiritual practices and neuroscience that is healing and transformative. (If you are uncomfortable with the idea of God, Higher, Power, Source, etc., this group may not be a good fit for you.)

The cost of enrollment for a month of support (about 10 hours of live video connection) is $69.00

Visit the Mornings With Jenn page for more information or to enroll.

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!

The Benzodiazepine Tapering Journal was created to help you keep track of your medication, doses, the time taken, and any withdrawal symptoms you may have, etc. There is a section for doctors, therapists, and friends and family should you want to share with them. The journal is to assist you in staying organized and aware of any changes in your health.

Healing With Love

New workshop
Two Weeks: April 1 to April 12

 

There are two states of being: fear and love. Everything falls into the trajectory of one or the other.

Fear destroys. Love creates. 

This workshop will delve into spiritual teachings plus neuroscience to help you better understand how to manage and cope with your withdrawal symptoms using love as your guideline.

 

Classwork will be on a page here on the website, and a morning live video about the lesson will be on a private Facebook group. (You can ask questions/share during the morning videos.) The video will be recorded and posted to the group.

 

Class lessons and the Facebook group will remain open after the class ends so you can refer back to it.

Cost of the workshop is $56. 

 

TESTIMONIALS FROM PAST PARTICIPANTS:

“Your daily videos alone give me and others such hope and encouragement TRULY beyond words!!   It’s the reassurance and your soothing voice AND your living truth that’s just so powerful that when you touch on certain things, it can at times bring tears to my eyes. I’m super grateful for you and all of your compassion and service for the human race.  It’s inspiring. Truly.
I am no longer a victim of benzos.  I’m a survivor.  Thanks for being the driving instrument who has gotten me this far. “
John S

 

“I don’t know how I was led to this course in this moment (actually I do – my angels were watching over me) because although I’ve followed you for several years, I wasn’t really actively looking for a course or a seminar to take. But, I’m so glad that I did because I’m no longer afraid to jump in and get past the need to take a pill every time life throws me a curveball. I know that I can and will be successful. So, thank you for such a wonderful experience. I know it was directed mainly at people in benzo withdrawal, but I believe that everything you taught us would be invaluable to anyone who’s looking to have a life filled with less stress and more love. Again, thank you for all that you do. You are definitely a light in the world!”
