In this podcast, we explore how sensitivity weaves itself into our lives. We talk about the richness that it adds, and the strengths we have BECAUSE of our sensitivity and some of the challenges it poses as well. If you are a Creative, a deep thinker, a deep feeler, a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), an introvert, or identify as INFJ or ENFJ, you may enjoy the in-depth conversations where we talk openly and honestly about how we experience life. This is a podcast where you can learn, relate, laugh and maybe even live a bolder, brighter life.


Have you been told you’re “too” (fill in the blank)? You’re too sensitive; you think/worry too much; you take things too personally; you’re too emotional, too finicky, too fragile, too intense, too uptight, too slow. Have you been told you can’t take a joke; you can’t go with the flow? You can’t let go of things? Making decisions can be very difficult. You might have an acute sense of smell, and strong odors, crowded noisy environments and bright lights are just too much!

You notice things that no one else does. You have a strong sense of justice and you may be a peace-keeper. Conflict feels uncomfortable. You’re the one that everyone tells their problems to because you’re a good listener who cares deeply.

You’re in the right place!

You may have been diagnosed with anxiety, depression, ADHD or something else. Sometimes Highly Sensitive People are misdiagnosed. Our brains are wired differently. We are born with the trait of High Sensitivity. There’s nothing wrong with you! You will learn that your perceived weaknesses are really are your superpowers! Dr. Elaine Aron coined the term Highly Sensitive Person (also known as Sensory Processing Sensitivity).

Just perfect for HSPs

I really do enjoy listening to Patricia's Unapologetically Sensitive podcast. She has such a gentle interviewing style, and her guests are always interesting and extremely generous in sharing their knowledge. Such a great podcast for all HSPs, and non-HSPs with HSPs in their life!

Sensational Listening!

I listen to a lot of podcasts but none are as sensitive, uplifting and compelling as Unapologetically Sensitive by Patricia Young. To say that personally I have found it life affirming would be an understatement. My new mantra, "Done is better than perfect" if you listen from the first ep posted you'll get what I mean and why I say this is my new mantra. I love the November challenge and that Patricia is posting small insights everyday as well as the weekly podcast and the interview with Annie Schuessler was wonderful. Even though I am in Australia, Unapologetically Sensitive, is universal.
