    "Just woah!"

    I loved this book. I've learnt so much! thank you for sharing Karla for helping me take my first steps into intentional empathy. My emotional partner is a hyper empath and I've always struggled to understand her. I decided to read this book as part of my commitment to be better and more supporting. It has definitely made me more aware of her needs and also my own! Some readers might find the book only helpful during the last 2 sessions because they are more hands on empathy how-to, but coming from a complete lack of emotional education I really appreciated the first 4 "intro" sessions into the world of emotions.

    "Thought-provoking, and beautifully read."
    What made the experience of listening to The Art of Empathy the most enjoyable?

    I found the author's voice very engaging and easy to listen to - something that is not typical of most reference/self-help books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could easily have listened to it in one sitting - it was fascinating!


    Any additional comments?

    This has been a *really* useful book for me as a trainee counsellor.
