My goals are simple.

Is your head swirling with

   to-do lists

   negative self talk

   fear of judgments

   not knowing where to start

Are you stuck but know you have to get started

just to get ahead of it?

Do you find yourself procrastinating and not

able to get going which then makes you feel

guilty or lazy which then turns into an

ongoing self-defeating circle?

 

Is the overwhelm enough to make you want

to crawl back in bed, or not even get out of bed?

I thrive on your success

I see you. 
I know you. 
I've been you.


I CAN HELP YOU GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY.

Why can't I keep up?

As a former overachiever and recovering perfectionist, that's what I used to ask when I compared myself to non-HSPs

Once I realized how much different HSPs take in their environment

and the world around them, I began to see that what energizes

and revitalizes the non-highly sensitive person actually depletes

the heart-centered, introverted and easily overstimulated person.  

My Story

Patti Sabla, Life Coach

I am almost embarrassed to admit this, but I didn't really know that highly sensitive people (HSPs) "was a thing" until I stumbled on it by accident.  


It was about twelve years ago and I had recently graduated with my Master's degree in Social Worker. 

 

I was working as a Licensed Psychotherapist in a community mental health facility. 

 

I had a client tell me that, from a very young age they would cry when they heard certain music or saw beautiful artwork and asked if I knew why that might be. 

After our session, I Googled "sensitive to music and art" and the term Highly Sensitive Person populated the page. 

 

I went down the internet rabbit hole and within an hour had ordered Dr. Elaine Aron's book The Highly Sensitive Person.

I devoured the book in a weekend and took her Highly Sensitive Person test. 

 

Out of 27-questions in Dr, Aron's "Are You Highly Sensitive" self-test,  I scored a 26! 

From then on, I have done endless research on the topic and even got to meet Dr. Aron in person! 

The more I learned about myself and my fellow HSPs, the more I realized we really thrived when we interacted with other HSPs.  

It felt amazing to feel seen, heard, and understood. Validation was so powerful.

 

I also quickly came to appreciate just how damaging it could be when working with a therapist or coach who didn't get the Highly Sensitive trait. 

I witnessed the harm that could come from wellness professionals telling HSPs that they "just shouldn't let it bother you" or informing HSPs that what they are upset about "really isn't that big of a deal" or that they "need to just let it go."  

That type of feedback can make a highly sensitive person feel like they are "too much" which isn't true. 

This is what led me to work exclusively with heart-centered, highly sensitive people, at first in the therapy field and later into the life coaching sector. 

 

AND I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT.
