Authenticity and Empathy




What to do, how to be when we find our knickers in a knot; arguing, defending, blaming, judging?

Because the obvious benefits of empathy, it is tempting to try to be empathic. However trying to be empathic may just be that, trying; not being.

So one of the challenges of skilful communication is to find a balance between authenticity and empathy.

Come and join our free, informal gathering

to a better understanding of ourselves." (Carl Jung)
