Highly sensitive people spend a lot of time trying to balance their surroundings, including the emotions and wellbeing of those around them, which lends to a supportive and caring nature. While highly sensitive people are well-suited for the role of 'helper', this practice can be particularly exhausting if not regulated. This book contains a variety of tools geared towards self-development and optimising a helpful and supportive conversation in professional therapeutic settings or personal relationships. This practical guide demonstrates how to use simple psychotherapeutic methods through supportive dialogues, which can be applied by anyone without any formal training. Written in easy language with real-life examples and practical exercises, this will serve as a handbook for highly sensitive people who provide help either on a professional or personal level.
