A leading resource for Empaths and Highly Sensitive People around the world

Welcome to The Empath, a not-for-profit organisation providing information, articles, support and other resources to help and support Empaths and Highly Sensitive People around the world.


This website is still under construction, so please be patient, it'll be fully online shortly, meanwhile please keep checking back, as new articles and information are always being added.




The terms Empath and HSP now seems to be a recognised psychological term for people with a much higher level of sensitivity that 'normal.' Normal is a subjective term anyway, as of course we are all 'normal' to ourselves!


Being an Empath and a Highly Sensitive Person means that we have a significantly 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 in some way, 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!


Basically, we REALLY DO process sensory data much more deeply and profoundly due to the nature of our central nervous system.


In short... Highly Sensitive People are wired slightly differently. CLICK HERE to read my rough guide to how people are divided according to their level of sensitivity. Are you Highly Sensitive? CLICK HERE to take our 25 point HSP self-test.





We'll be adding lots (and lots) of articles and interesting information from Empaths around the world about being an HSP and living as an Empath.
