Are You An Emotional Chameleon? The Importance of Identity For the Highly Sensitive Person
HSPs can be emotional chameleons. Jeannette talks about why she believes identity plays such an important role in the well-being of the Highly Sensitive Person. She explains how we begin to understand our true identity, and how it benefits us to identify as spiritual beings having a human experience. Jeannette provides practices we can use in our everyday lives to see through our spiritual lens, and ways we can stay in the present moment. She also provides a powerful tool to gain perspective when things feel really big.
Jeannette Folan discovered she was a Highly Sensitive Person in 2014. At the time, she was dealing with depression and some addictive behavior. Committed to learning how to heal and break free from her mental health struggles, she immersed herself in the world of sensitivity and spirituality. Within two years, she closed her marketing business and published her first novel, Diary of a Teenage Empath: The Awakening. Since then, she has authored and co-authored several books and workbooks for children, teens and adults. In 2017, she became an Integrative Health Coach and began leading a support group for HSPs in her community of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Along with her mentor, Dr. Wendy Nickerson, she developed the first-ever accredited HSP Certification Training Program for mental health professionals, which, to date, has been completed by professionals in seven countries.
Jeannette is an active member of the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology, where she presents workshops for mental health professionals and school teachers and administrators to gain a better understanding of the unique challenges and therapeutic approaches for highly sensitives. She is a dedicated advocate, working to support the professionals who are supporting the valuable HSP population.
