There are many different types of empaths in our world.
Dr. Orloff is a researcher psychiatrist at UCLA studies Empaths. According to Dr. Orloff's book, The Empath's Survival Guide, There is a Difference Between Having Empathy and Being an Empath. When a person has empathy it means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain, yet for empaths, it goes much further. We actually feel others' emotions, energy, and physical sensations in our own bodies, without the usual defenses that most people have."

Integrative Coaching and Energy psychology is an invaluable resource for empaths who want to develop their strenghts,and their coping skills in a high-stimulus world while embracing their gifts of intuition, compassion, creativity, and spiritual connection.
