Welcome to Family Feelings created by me James Williams for families to better understand the personality trait high sensitivity so that highly sensitive children and parents can thrive in our overwhelming world.

A little about me

I am privileged to be the primary carer for my two daughters and have been for over 10 years. I feel passionately about the role of being a parent and truly believe it’s the best job in the world. I am also acutely aware of how incredibly difficult and challenging it can be at times.

High sensitivity has a massive impact on my family’s life, and coming to understand the trait has transformed our lives – for the better. Before we understood high sensitivity we were bumbling about in the dark; now we’re in the light. I wish the entire world knew all about high sensitivity. What a wonderful world it would be if highly sensitive children and people were understood, accepted and truly valued for who they are.

All I can do is keep spreading the word, and hope that eventually everyone connected with children; teachers, health and medical professionals, care workers, parents etc. recognize without judgement, value and nurture highly sensitive children.

During my Daddy years I have developed mindfulness practices through art, meditation and as a way of being. More recently I have trained to be an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor.
