You are not alone if you've heard "you're too sensitive!" and you don't need to "fix" anything about you. You are not alone, my friend.
 
In this episode, #156, invited Mel Collins, a UK author of the book “The Handbook for Highly Sensitive People - How to Transform Feeling Overwhelmed and Frazzled to Empowered and Fulfilled.” Before dedicating her time to writing and teaching, Mel is also a spiritual life coach, qualified psychotherapeutic counselor, spiritual healer, reiki master, intuitive, and HSP consultant.
