An empath is someone who is highly aware of the emotions of those around them, to the point of feeling those emotions themselves. Empaths see the world differently than other people; they’re keenly aware of others, their pain and what they need emotionally.
Many Highly Sensitive People are also empaths — but there may be slight differences between the two. It’s likely that most empaths are highly sensitive, but not all highly sensitive people are necessarily empaths.
As with any trait, HSP’s/ Empaths often have a range of benefits and challenges. When denied or ignored, these can easily lead to problems like depression, anxiety, and challenges with work, school or relationships. But when embraced can bring tremendous possibility and meaning to our lives.
I work with Highly Sensitive People and Empaths to better understand the trait and its unique interplay with their needs, values, and aspirations. While the challenges and opportunities presented by High Sensitivity are richly diverse, I can help with:
- Adjust work, home or school life to reduce over-stimulation and overwhelm
- Address shyness and loneliness to begin cultivating relationships
- Be understood, and have your needs met with friends, family, colleagues and partners
- Help you to heal after experiencing distressing, overwhelming or traumatising events
- Explore any longstanding guilt, shame, or regret
- Navigate the search for meaning and purpose
- Begin to examine and reconcile concerns around areas of moral and ethical importance.
As an integrative counsellor I like to use a combination of therapeutic techniques in the counselling process with you.
If you feel the calling to reach out to me I would love to hear from you.
Your investment for Counselling for Empaths is charged at £70 per 50 minute session.
”I’ve been working with Juliet for over 5months now, and it’s been an incredible journey. My past experience with other therapists hasn’t been so positive, but Juliet is remarkable. She is highly professional, but simultaneously, you know she genuinely cares, making her different. She can make you feel so comfortable that you easily open up (coming from someone who struggles to share emotions). I’ve learnt some great tools from Juliet that has helped me and continues to help me during the most challenging time of my life. Juliet is truly gifted. She works so well around my religious belief and cultural values, so I don’t have to compromise what is important to me. Even my best friend always tells me how lucky I am to have found a therapist that is too good at what she does. And I believe Juliet’s secret is her kind, genuine soul. Thank you so much, Juliet.”Zainab Malik, UK
