What people are saying...

Jules has developed a fantastic course, covering so many modules which hugely resonated with me as a HSP - from learning about the trait itself and a framework for coaching; covering topics such as internal family systems and parts work, the shadow and self-compassion; to developing one’s niche as a coach and marketing skills.

Why Learn to Coach highly Sensitive People?

Research shows that 1 in 5 people are Highly Sensitive and it's estimated that around 50% of clients who seek out coaching, therapy, or mentorship are Highly Sensitive.

These statistics emphasise the importance of understanding this unique set of traits and learning how to work with Highly Sensitive People (HSP). Highly Sensitive People often feel misunderstood and can struggle with stress, anxiety and overwhelm; however, HSP are also gifted with a range of skills; they respond extremely well to positive interventions and this enables them to thrive with the right resources in place. ​ The HSP's depth of processing and sensitivity to subtleties means they're often drawn towards holistic and spiritual perspectives - they resonate and benefit from approaches that are transpersonally orientated. This is the only coaching programme available that offers a holistic approach for coaching Highly Sensitive People which will leave you equipped with the right skills, mindset and diversity of perspectives to thrive in your work with Highly Sensitive People. ​ ​

Testimonials

“After working many years as a yoga and meditation instructor along with being a clinical health coach, I began focusing specifically on working with highly sensitive people who experience anxiety. I was excited when I saw the professional training for coaching highly sensitive people, because I was already interested in holistic and integrative approaches to our health and wellbeing. This course offered me the opportunity to connect and build professional relationships with other HSP coaches, while honing my coaching skills using a transpersonal approach. It has provided me with a very practical tool box full of introspective practices I can share with my HSP clients as well as increasing my confidence in coaching. This is a great course for anyone interested in contemplative practices and learning more about the many different aspects of yourself as an individual as well as helping other HSPs do the same! ”

Daphnie Leigh, E-RYT 500, Health & Ayurvedic Lifestyle Coach for HSPs with Anxiety (www.yoiranger.com)

“Jules' coaching and workshops have left me feeling confident and able to expand my professional work as a coach. She has helped me to discover my unique message as a coach and also connect with other like-minded souls on a similar mission!”

Community Member

“I already feel a lot more confident having a clearer mental structure on the topic, knowing which tools to use for what, where I still want to work on and also some metaphors that help me value our gift of sensitivity. So thank you Jules for all this great content, this is even better than I expected and is good for me to work on myself”

Chris

“​ "I am so deeply grateful for your work Jules and that of Dr Elaine Aron. You've enabled me to not only accept my sensitivity but to really explore what my traits are telling me. I'm realizing that I am struggling to find the words to describe how I feel; my whole world seems to have opened up"”

Community Member

“Jules is wonderful in the sense that, she holds the space for everyone, honouring each person’s process, allowing the transformation to occur slowly, silently, and soothingly. She is a caring, warm and sincere person who puts her heart and soul into helping people through their self-healing”

Course Member

“The 3-Month Professional Training on Coaching Highly Sensitive People was a very professional and well-designed course. The resources were full of practical information and they were also visually appealing. I enjoyed the sense of community created between the other course members, and the live trainings were very helpful.”

Course Participant

“Jules takes the time to guide each person through their journey of self-discovery. She helped me connect with my intuition and what my soul was actually looking for”

“Before I discovered Highly Sensitive Humans and Jules' work I often felt alone in my experience. I knew I wanted to help other people similar to me - but I had no idea where to start! Since going through the content I've learned what tools I can use for all the different struggles that HSP face. I feel confident in holding space for others and most importantly I no longer feel alone in my experience as an HSP”

Adam

“I enjoyed this course tremendously. I learned a lot from taking this course with Jules De Vitto. It definitely is money well spent as it not only helps one in a professional way but also in personal self-development.”

Maggie Kelly - The Unstoppable HSP

“Jules is a wonderful teacher and has been supportive and available throughout. Before I joined the course I had no clear direction but now am firmly on the path to using my own innate gifts to be a coach with a focus around HS children. As someone who’s only recently learned that I’m highly sensitive and high sensation seeker (again a whole new revelation to me) having chance to connect with other people who also experience the world in this unique way has been amazing and extremely validating and will hopefully be ongoing. ”
