Jennifer Leigh, PsyDCoach, Author, Benzo Survivor
Hope. Help. Healing.
After I earned a doctorate in psychology, I became a coach. As an award-winning author, I appeared on national radio and TV and my work was showcased in top newspapers and magazines. Psychology Today asked me to be a contributor. But that career came to a close when I had a life-threatening brain injury due to a benzodiazepine I took as directed by my doctor. I blog honestly about my ordeal and help people around the world who have the same injury.
People in benzo withdrawal need a great deal of support and reassurance that they will get better. That’s why I structure my work to include calls from people who only want to share their questions or concerns infrequently, as the need arises. The act of being heard and cared for is healing.
I also work with people who want a weekly or bi-monthly coaching relationship so that they can better achieve their recovery goals. Having a compassionate coach hold you accountable is powerful.
I do my best to answer emails and text messages within 24 hours.
