A Beginner’s Guide to Becoming a High Sensory Coach

This post will try to answer as many questions as possible about High Sensory Coaching and everything else you might need to know.

If your question is missing, kindly leave it in the comments or get in touch to learn more.

Learn about becoming a High Sensory Coach

What is High Sensory?

High Sensory is another word for Sensory Processing Sensitivity (SPS) – the innate trait found in 20-30% of the population.

You may know this trait simply as High Sensitivity (HS), but because of its negative connotation, High Sensory is emerging as a better alternative.

Willow McIntosh, the founder of Inluminance and creator of the High Sensory Coaching Program, is one of the pioneering champions of this alternative.

What is High Sensory Intelligence?

High Sensory Intelligence is a term you will encounter in your journey to becoming a High Sensory Coach. 

It describes the unique set of abilities you possess as a High Sensory Person (HSP) – the ones you’re born with and need to leverage to unveil your calling as a healer, coach, or facilitator. 

As you may already know, every HSP is different and revealing these differences is crucial to finding your purpose in this overwhelming world.

Who is a High Sensory Coach?

A High Sensory Coach is a person who uses their inborn abilities (intelligence) and life experiences to help people realize their unique strengths and live to their fullest potential. 

And because all High Sensory People (HSPs) are born with a natural ability to read people, show empathy, and deeply process information, they make great candidates for exceptional coaches and healers.

Even if you haven’t had any coaching experience before, you already have an innate ability to create transformation in people similar to you.

What Do You Need to Become a Highly Sensory Coach?

Unlike other coaching processes where current qualifications and practice hours matter, becoming a High Sensory Coach requires very little.

Below are the current requirements:

  1. Be a High Sensory Person – The first requirement to work in High Sensory coaching is to have the trait of Sensory Processing Sensitivity (SPS). Because, as a High Sensory Person, you already have the capabilities needed to excel as a High Sensory Coach. 
  2. Be ready to embrace your calling – Are you tired of trying to fit in, being stuck in a dead-end job, or struggling to find meaning in life? As a High Sensory Person, you’re highly likely to succeed and find joy in roles that serve others. And coaching fellow HSPs is one such role. So, if you’re ready to reveal and embrace your true calling, you’re halfway there to becoming a High Sensory Coach.

The HSP trait is a sea of endless potential, and every High Sensory Person possesses a unique piece of the pie – whether you already know it or not.

So forget about your background education and working experience for a moment and consider your life experiences. How has your life path prepared you for a career in helping others?

Are you an inborn healer, coach, facilitator, advisor, teacher, theologian or another title dedicated to helping others?

According to Willow McIntosh, High Sensory People don’t need to be taught how to coach or help others. 

They only need guidance to reveal the type of client they’re born to serve and their natural process of working with these clients.

The process we use helps you reveal your own natural methodology and show its value. This is already a part of who you are based on your life experience. It only needs to be revealed, not taught to you.

So, in summary, all you need to become a High Sensory Coach is the HSP trait and a willingness to discover your calling.

High Sensory Person vs Highly Sensitive Person

Is there a difference between a High Sensory Person and a Highly Sensitive Person?

The answer to this question is NO.

Both terms refer to an individual with Sensory Processing Sensitivity (SPS) – the trait found in 20-30% of the human population and over 100 other species.

You may hear the term Highly Sensitive Person used more often, as it’s what Dr. Elaine N. Aron called the trait when she first wrote about it.

However, High Sensory Person is also rising in recognition following the ongoing advocacy by Willow McIntosh and his team of facilitators and graduates at Inluminance.

It’s also worth noting that a podcast using the term High Sensory People (HSPs) exists and is now in its second season. Listen here.
