In this episode, I speak to Jacquelyn Strickland, a licensed professional counsellor, who has worked exclusively with highly sensitive people since 2000. We speak about the barriers to self-expression and the tools and techniques that can support us in authentic self-expression and communication as Highly Sensitive People. We discuss exterior listening vs interior listening, our spiritual path, the concept of an inner calling, soul purpose and the importance of 'following our bliss.'

Jacquelyn's practice has slowly transitioned into her current work as a Mentor and Coach for highly sensitive people. Her background in Social Work, Women’s Studies, cultural diversity and a graduate degree in Counseling still empower and informed her work. She has been
trained in hypnotherapy and utilized her Level II EMDR training in her psychotherapy practice. She has been certified to utilize Myers Briggs Personality Assessment since 1991, and is also well versed in the use of the Enneagram, using both of these modalities, when helpful, in her work. Jacquelyn is one of the very first pioneers, along with Elaine Aron, of what is now an international movement connecting HSPs around the world. She is a member of ICHS – International Consultants on High Sensitivity which is an international group of highly sensitive professionals trained in 2018 by Dr Elaine Aron. Jacquelyn made a brief appearance in the 2015 documentary: Sensitive, The Untold Story.
