How to Manage Emotional Fatigue as a Sensitive Therapist

As Highly Sensitive Therapists (HST), we have the capacity to dive deeply into the myriad of experiences that our clients bring to us - from childhood pain and trauma to romantic bliss.  It can often feel like a “rollercoaster of emotions”, to quote a fellow HST, and it takes a significant amount of energy to go on that journey each day.

The Biggest Challenge for a Highly Sensitive Therapist

Our ability to process information deeply and make connections for our clients is a great strength as Highly Sensitive Therapists, but can lead to chronic exhaustion.  Managing this depletion can be as straight forward as implementing more downtime into our day and setting up our businesses to match the needs of our temperament.
