In response to requests from many affected by benzodiazepine, z-drug and antidepressant withdrawal who feel they need ongoing, one-on-one support from a qualified counselor who has also experienced withdrawal, confidential support sessions, in the form of consultations are offered by Baylissa Frederick.

This is different to formal counseling where deeper issues are usually explored and processed. These support consultations will focus on empowering those affected with coping tools to effectively manage symptoms and with the opportunity to ask questions about their withdrawal. You will be listened to without judgment and your experience will be validated from a place of understanding, derived from her personal experience and the support work she has done over the past decade.

Consultations are also available for spouses, other family members and caregivers who may be offering support. This will help to prevent or manage issues related to compassion fatigue and burnout and will enable them to understand the process and care for themselves while supporting their loved one.

Baylissa is not a medical doctor and is not qualified to advise or comment on medical treatment you may be receiving, or to supervise tapers off medication. The consultations offered will provide coping and self-care information, encouragement and emotional support.

Fees:

Note: Consultation sessions are 50 minutes long and cost £40.
