Raising Empaths - a Talk for Parents & Educators

Empaths are exceptional human beings. They tend to be highly intuitive and emotionally intelligent. These are our world-changers and peacemakers who have the potential to bring much healing wherever they are.

From the youngest age, empaths absorb even the unspoken emotions of those around them. They think deeply about all aspects of life, of nature, of humanity and the universe. As children they are often referred to as “old souls”.

The sad reality, however, is that empaths tend to journey through life without being understood and often without even fully understanding themselves. They feel alone and different and are easily labelled as being ‘overly sensitive’ or ‘overly emotional’. As a result, the empath is prone to significant anxiety and depression.

I have the tremendous honour of raising two empath children. It is the greatest blessing, but it is also the greatest responsibility and is extremely challenging at times. Empaths require a different kind of parenting, and a different way of educating if we are to help them embrace their gifts. (And there are MANY!)

“Really brilliant and so well presented. Thanks so much Naomi”

“So enlightening -- thanks Naomi”

“Wow!  This has made me not only understand my empath daughter more, but also made me realise how empathic I am! I feel so at peace understanding my daughter more & myself”


"I attended Naomi's workshop as a teacher (and an Empath myself) and I gained so much from it. So much resonated with me and confirmed my gut instincts. It's not easy being a teacher in a society that values children's academic achievement over emotional well-being. Naomi's insightful approach just allowed me to so clearly see why it is absolutely vital to focus on the child before the curriculum and to fight for what so many of our children need both at home and in the classroom. I have had the privilege of teaching so many incredible Empaths and I can't wait to put this valuable knowledge into practice and make Empaths feel that they truly belong in my classroom!”



“Thank you so much. So much to think about and chat with my hubby about. Things are going to change in our parenting!”

“I found this so meaningful. So many questions answered. Thanks so much Naomi.”
