COACH DAVID POWERS, PHD

Coach Powers is a benzodiazepine recovery coach providing assessment, education, support, and recovery coaching to those suffering from benzo dependence withdrawal. Powers, himself, fought his way back to full health after a 10-year dependence on a high dose of Valium.

 

Powers is a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and runs the Benzo Recovery School (www.BenzoRecoverySchool.com), a positive-focused Benzo recovery community with a multi-module video course on recovery, plus weekly 3-hour live meetings where Powers provides lessons and takes Q&A from students.  

Powers Coaching focuses on several dimensions of Benzo Recovery, which align with his two core principles: "lulling" & "pushing." 

His coaching style is informed by CBT, DBT, & Mindfulness Training. 

Powers also works as an artist and filmmaker.
