Are you an empath or a highly sensitive person?
Do you feel other people’s emotions as if they are your own?
If so, you know how hard that can be. I hear you! I’ve been there.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Being highly sensitive comes with many challenges (like fatigue, sensory-overload and feeling mentally/emotionally overwhelmed, you name it…).
But it is also your greatest gift.
Once you learn how to deal with the challenges, the talents of your sensitivity can come forward.
And that’s what I can help you with.
You are in the right place if:
- You feel ‘everything from everyone’ and need help with your sensitivity & empathy
- You want to deepen your intuition and really trust it
- You want to find the gifts in your sensitivity
- And create your life in a way that fits YOU. In a heart-centered, compassionate, joyful way.
Welcome, my name is Irene Langeveld.
You could call me a teacher, a speaker or a coach…
but what I really do is helping highly sensitive people and empaths
to experience their sensitivity as a strength instead of a weakness.
I can help you:
- feel confident and powerful with your sensitivity,
- use your intuition to follow your own path in life
- so you can feel happy, peaceful and fulfilled.
I believe that sensitivity is a huge gift
Whether you call it being highly sensitive (HSP – a highly sensitive person) or an empath (someone who feels emotions from others as if they are their own), if you are here you probably struggle with the depth of what you are feeling:
- your own emotions
- the emotions from other people
And you probably don’t even know whether what you are feeling is from you or from someone else.
Welcome in the world of a highly sensitive person or empath!
First, to get definitions out of the way:
A highly sensitive person is someone who processes information more deeply than other people. It is NOT a disorder. It’s a character trait that about 20% of the population possesses. You are born with it.
You may be sensitive to loud noises, bright lights and other sensory information. You are probably a deep thinker as well as a deep feeler. You feel your own emotions deeply, but you also feel the emotions from other people and the atmosphere in a room.
An empath is someone who takes on emotions from other people as if they are their own.
For example: you spend time with someone who is sad and when you leave, you not only understand why that person is feeling sad (that’s called empathy and everyone except sociopaths have that ability in one way or another) but you also FEEL sad yourself. You have taken on the emotion from the other person and now you have to process that.
Most highly sensitive people (HSP) are also empaths. In my native language, Dutch, the word empath doesn’t even exist and we just use ‘highly sensitive person’. So don’t worry about the definitions and whether you’re one or the other or both. It doesn’t really matter.
If you recognize yourself in what I write here, you’re in the right place!
How can I help you?
As I said, I believe your sensitivity is your greatest gift.
And I know that (especially in the beginning) it doesn’t feel that way!
In order to really thrive with your sensitivity, you have to get out of ‘survival-mode’ with your sensitivity: You have to learn what is yours and what is not. You have to learn how you can let go of emotions and energies from other people. You have to learn to stay strong and centered in yourself so you can still FEEL everything… but it won’t throw you off balance or overwhelm you anymore.
And once you have that stability (and I teach you how to do that in my online course Thriving with Sensivity), then you create a space for your intuition to come through.
Your intuition is a subtle, soft, gentle voice. As long as you’re still struggling with everything you’re feeling, that voice is very hard to hear.
But once you feel stronger and more balanced and centered, then your intuition opens up. Then you can learn to listen and recoginize your intuition and how it communicates with you.
Then you can use your intuition as a guide, a compass, for your daily life. You can tune into your intuition when you make decisions – so you make the decisions that are totally right for you.
Then you can start to build your life anew. In a way that fits you. In a heart-centered, compassionate way. Learning to be compassionate to yourself as well as to others. And to really enjoy life and all of your sensitivity again.
And that journey is what I can help you with.
