Are You a Relationship Empath?

In my practice and workshops, I’m struck by how many sensitive people come to me wanting a long-term soul mate. Personally, I can relate to this.

Yet despite online dating services, expensive match-makers, friend fix-ups and blind dates, they still remain single. Or else they’re in relationships but feel constantly fatigued and overwhelmed. The reason isn’t simply that “there aren’t enough available people ‘out there'” or that they’re neurotic. Personally and professionally, I’ve discovered something more is going on…


Empaths are highly sensitive, intuitive,  
and caring, but they’re also

shock  absorbers with an extremely
permeable nervous system and
 hyperactive reflexes.
