Show Notes

In today's episode, I speak with Robert Siegers exploring, 'Is the Highly Sensitive Person the same as Autism Spectrum Disorder?' We discuss the similarities, differences and overlapping traits with the purpose of opening up a dialogue around this important topic.

We also explore the purpose and potential limitations of using labels and diagnosis. We discuss the importance of understanding neurodiversity with the intention and goal of delving into the lived experience of being highly sensitive and how it may overlap or intertwine with other diagnoses - ultimately, respecting and honouring the diversity of our human experience.

Robert is a highly sensitive person and entrepreneur from Germany. He is the host of the UNDERSTANDABLE podcast. On his channel, he talks about mental health topics such as high sensitivity and other neurodivergent conditions. With his content, he loves to provide insight through deeper self-understanding.
