8 Places to Find HSP Coaches and Therapists

Where to find HSP Coaches and therapists in 2024

1. Dr. Elaine Aron’s Website

The first place to begin your search is on Dr. Elaine Aron’s website. And if you don’t know already, Dr. Aron is the pioneer of the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) trait as she’s the one who gave it a name and changed millions of lives.

She’s a psychologist, author, researcher and go-to expert for everything related to High Sensitivity.

Like with other entries on this list, Dr. Elaine N. Aron’s website is a platform dedicated to helping Highly Sensitive People learn about their Sensitivity. It features up-to-date research, blogs dating back to the early 2000s, books, and other HSP resources.

Part of these resources is an extensive directory to help you find HSP coaches, therapists, and other medical professionals. These categories are separately listed, so it’s important to know exactly what type of practitioner you need.

Visit this page on Dr. Elaine Aron’s website to find knowledgeable HSP professionals. Everyone appearing on the directory has read or watched a resource titled Psychotherapy for the Highly Sensitive Person and passed a test.

And what’s more?

If you’re looking for a therapist, you can search the database by State (if you’re in the US), and Country (if you’re outside the US). If you’re looking for a coach, you can search based on the type of coach you want (life coach, business coach, career coach, etc.).

2. Julie Bjelland’s Website

Julie Bjelland is a Psychotherapist specializing in High Sensitivity. She appears many times on this website as she has a ton of resources for Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) on her website.

Feel free to explore this vault of HSP resources when you have some time to spare. You will find courses, downloads, masterclasses, a community, guides and more.

Among these resources is a directory of HSP Practitioners where you can find HSP coaches, business owners, therapists and other professionals.

And like with Dr. Aron’s database, every practitioner listed on Julie’s website has taken a test about HSPs. So you can be sure when a therapist or coach on the list says they specialize in High Sensitivity, they truly are knowledgeable in working with HSPs.

Go here to explore the directory for HSP practitioners on Julie’s website.

3. Empath Diary’s HSP Directory

Empath Diary is a platform sharing educational information and resources for Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) and empaths. Jeannette Folan, an author, advocate, educator and coach is the person behind the website.

She is also the co-creator and instructor of this HSP Certification Training Course for those wanting to work with HSPs and empaths.

Part of the resources on Empath Diary is a comprehensive directory where you can find HSP coaches and therapists. The directory features a large selection of practitioners, listed by state and country and available in alphabetical order.

Entries feature the name of the individual, their title, and contact information.

Visit the Directory to find HSP coaches and therapists or get listed.

4. The Highly Sensitive Humans Directory

Highly Sensitive Humans (HSH) is a website by Jules De Vitto – a Transpersonal Coach and Trainer for HSPs and HSP professionals.

It’s also home to the Highly Sensitive Humans Academy where Jules offers Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) one-on-one training and HSP resources, including online courses, coaching programs, membership study, and more.

Part of these resources is the Highly Sensitive Human Directory. The database features HSP professionals trained by Jules De Vitto through her 3-month certification program and others from around the web.

Search the directory to find HSP coaches, therapists, and other lightworkers helping Highly Sensitive People thrive.

5. The National Centre for High Sensitivity (NCHS)

Founded by Barbara Allen, and sadly closed in 2020, The National Centre for High Sensitivity (NCHS) is a website promoting awareness, fulfilment and authentic living in the highly sensitive population.

And while NCHS no longer posts new content, the information published before the closure lives on and is available as a resource for HSPs seeking support.

One of the resources available on the NCHS website is the HSP Support Directory. It contains a list of practitioners who specialize in counselling, coaching and healing highly sensitive people (HSPs).

The directory includes each practitioner’s contact information so you can reach them directly to learn more.

6. The HSP Tools Directory

HSP Tools is a directory and publication sharing resources for Highly Sensitive People (HSPs).

It features a wide variety of products and services, including online courses, books, blogs, communities, podcasts, newsletters, and more.

The HSP Tools directory has two parts – resources and practitioners. You can find HSP coaches, therapists, and other HSP practitioners through either of these two databases. But the fastest way is to search the practitioners’ directory.

Since the directory is relatively new, you might not find a large number of professionals on the list. But we’re adding to the directory daily and you can expect more options as the database grows.

7. The Service Directory at SensitivePerson.Com

When we first came across this website, we thought to ourselves: What are we looking at? The website is so simple, available in HTTP instead of HTTPS, and almost looks like a spam site. We even wanted to exit and find another resource to share instead of it.

However, after deciding to give it a shot and exploring its Service Directory page, we realized the website has a huge database of HSP practitioners. And not only can you find HSP Coaches and therapists, but also practitioners in other industries.

You can search for dentists, musicians, personal trainers, writers, etc. And they all either specialize in working with highly sensitive people (HSPs) or are HSPs themselves. You’ll have to check it out for yourself to see how extensive the directory is.

Here’s the Service Directory for Sensitive Persons. It features a list of categories at the top, designed to simplify your search depending on the service you want.

So, to find HSP coaches, try searching in the “Coaching” category. To find HSP therapists, try the “Counseling”, “Psychology”, or “Psychotherapy” sections.

And because it’s an extensive directory, please take your time searching through and conduct further research to ensure the person you’re getting in touch with is legit.

P.S. Only use this option as a last resort. It requires a lot of time to sift through the mess.

8. Social Media

Telling you to find HSP coaches and therapists on Social Media is almost the same as asking you to search Google. It can be annoying, confusing, misleading, and overwhelming. And that’s why it’s appearing as the last entry.

But don’t underestimate the importance of Social Media in finding coaches and therapists for HSPs. Just because it’s appearing last doesn’t mean it’s not helpful enough.

You only need to know exactly what you’re looking for.

For instance, instead of looking for a general HSP coach, therapist, or mentor. Look for an HSP practitioner who specializes in the issue you’re struggling with.

Whether you’re struggling with anxiety, people-pleasing, nutrition, business, setting boundaries, or depression, look for a coach who speaks openly about these issues.

Social Media allows you to find HSP coaches who specialize in exactly the problem you’re having. So, search for them and remember to dig deeper into their qualifications and experience.

And it doesn’t matter if you’re searching on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, or Facebook. As long as you know exactly what help you need, you can find the right HSP coach, therapist, mentor, or healer for you.

Final Word on Where to Find HSP Coaches

These 8 places provide a great place to find HSP coaches, therapists, mentors, healers and other practitioners.

But if we were to offer recommendations on where you should start if you’re new to high sensitivity, we recommend Dr. Elaine Aron’s directory, Julie Bjelland’s directory, and the Highly Sensitive Humans directory.

These two directories provide a list of practitioners who not only say they work with Highly Sensitive People but have also taken a test to prove they’re knowledgeable in the trait of High Sensitivity.

So, if you need a coach or therapist who understands you as an HSP, you can be sure the people in these three lists are qualified. Because they’ve taken a comprehensive test about HSPs and high sensitivity and passed.

And you can rest assured you’re working with a knowledgeable HSP coach, mentor, therapist, healer or another HSP practitioner.
