The Empath

Guidance, love, balance and support for Empaths and Highly Sensitive People, anywhere in the world.


Hi, I'm Robin, I'm an Empath and an Acutely Sensitive Person, and welcome to my little website. It is still under construction though, so please be patient, it'll be fully online soon (by the end of May 2018).


The term HSP now seems to be a recognised psychological term for people with a much higher level of sensitivity that 'normal.' CLICK HERE to read about the different levels of Sensitivity. Normal is a subjective term anyway, as of course we are all 'normal' to ourselves!


Being an Empath and a Highly Sensitive Person is really the same; we have the increased ability to perceive the mental or emotional state of another individual; we easily and quickly absorb and experience other people's emotions, especially hurt, fear, anger or anxiety, and are often brought to tears when experiencing these emotions; we are easily hurt ourselves and can very quickly get upset with disharmony and discord; we don't like emotional confrontation; we can become very quickly overwhelmed with the world around us, and with people and noise; we are highly intuitive; we instinctively know when people are lying to us or trying to deceive us, and have much stronger gut feelings about things which are - more often than not – correct, and we just 'know' the motivations and intentions of other people. There are lots of other traits too of course! Are you Highly Sensitive? CLICK HERE to take my 25 point HSP self-test. Basically, we process sensory data more deeply due to the nature of our central nervous system. In short... Highly Sensitive People are wired slightly differently.


As an Empath I offer two main services to fellow Empaths and Highly Sensitive People: one to one counselling, coaching and support in a very down-to-earth non-complicated way, and bespoke retreats for Empaths wanting to just relax and get away from everything and everyone for a short while. Click below  or in the menu, for further details.


I'll also be adding lots of articles and information about HSP and living as an Empath to this website too, so if you have written anything about this subject and would like more people to read it, please CONTACT ME. On top of this, as an author, writer and publisher, I'll be compiling and publishing various books for our community too.

For Empaths & Highly Sensitive People...

One to one counselling, coaching and  support.

Private and bespoke weekend and weekly retreats




I am working on this website at the moment, and will be adding more and more content shortly, in the meantime, please CLICK HERE to read my two editions of The Empath magazine- I started publishing them last year but sadly didn't find enough financial support to continue. But I hope you enjoy issues 1 and 2 anyway. And, if you feel you need some positive, good energy  CLICK HERE to download a FREE pdf copy of my LITTLE BOOK OF GOOD ENERGY.


Conversations with Empaths - contact me if you fancy chatting about being an Empath/HSP, or answering a few questions via email.  It'll be to put on this website, as well as into a book I am planning on this subject.
