There’s so much judgment and shame instilled in being a highly-sensitive person.

What most people don’t realize is that this is a superpower.

Therapeutic business coach, Heather Dempsey, breaks down what it means to be a highly-sensitive person (HSP), how to optimize this ability in your career and business, effective communication with non-sensitive people, and ways to self-regulate.

Tune in to this episode: Emotional Health with Heather Dempsey

Key points covered in this episode:

✔️ You’re an HSP if you do this. Do noises outside seem more disruptive? Do you freak out over little things when others don’t? Do certain things feel like they’re magnified at a ten?

✔️ HSPs must navigate relationships differently. Figure out your tipping points, and form boundaries around them. Avoid triggering situations. Let go of the idea that you’re the “awkward one”.

✔️ HSPs can avoid projection. Identify the beliefs you’ve created. Filter which ones are true and false. Rebuild your resource of truth. Accept that some beliefs could be real, but challenge them how some might not be.

✔️ Talk to non-sensitives with empathy. They don’t sense the same things as you do. You may also react in ways that are uncomfortable for them, and that’s okay.

✔️ Self-regulation helps. Find activities that are self-nurturing. Practice patience in this fast-paced world.


Heather Dempsey is a therapeutic business coach specializing in emotional health, mindset, and the psychology of business. She helps introverts, empaths, HSP, or those who struggle with anxiety show up powerfully and comfortably in their business by creating radical emotional and mindset transformations so they can thrive in business, life, and beyond.
