6 Career Choices for Empaths

6 Career Choices for Empaths

There are a lot of people who are looking for more than just money when it comes to their career choice. This is especially true when it comes to empaths, who need to feel like they’re making a difference in people’s lives and actively helping them every single day. Fortunately, there are a lot of professions that can allow one to do just that. Keep in mind that these professions differ in industry, entry-level requirements and more, which is something that one needs to take into serious consideration before making a choice. With that in mind, here are six career choices that can allow you to help people on a daily basis, as well as a couple of reasons why they’re so rewarding for empaths.

1. Teacher

The reason why empaths are such some great teachers is due to the fact that they have an easier time understanding their students at a deeper, emotional, level. This will not only allow you to become more efficient at helping students acquire new knowledge but also help you rekindle your passion for this profession on a daily basis. Remember, there are many different learning styles and every single classroom possesses individuals who belong to most of them. Only a person who is completely dedicated to this profession will have enough time, patience and willpower to reach out to every single one of them in their optimal style.

2. Career consultant

One of the best ways in which you can help others is by allowing them to discover things about themselves they didn’t even know were there. A job of a career consultant is not to tell people what kind of career they should pursue, it’s to help them figure this out for themselves. Sometimes, in order to do so, they need a fresh perspective and some questions which, by answering, they’ll have a much better idea of what they’re after. Most importantly, some of the most obvious answers might have evaded them, which is why talking to a career consultant might be incredibly helpful.

3. Nurse

When it comes to professions that allow one to help people being involved in a medical profession is probably the first thing that comes to mind. The biggest downside of this idea is the fact that in order to become a registered nurse, you need to dedicate yourself to years and years of training and education. Moreover, you need to pursue an education in the traditional way, seeing as how no online course can make you into a nurse. 

Fortunately, there are so many job opportunities for those who decide to go for this career option. This means that you don’t necessarily have to work in a hospital, and you can specialize in elderly care just as easily. Second, you’re not location bound when you decide to go job hunting. It’s just as easy for you to find employment in a specialized retirement village in Central Coast as anywhere else. 

4. Nutritionist

Being a nutritionist is about more than just helping people get fit, it’s about teaching them the secrets of a healthier lifestyle. You see, there are some people struggling to gain mass, while there are others who want to lose some weight in order to get in shape. Needless to say, both of these groups need help from a nutritionist. The concept of a diet is both unhealthy and ineffective due to the fact that it A) aims to achieve some results as quickly as possible (which is not healthy) and B) has an end upon the completion of these goals (which is ineffective). What a nutritionist does is teaches them how to eat every single day so that they don’t have to worry about any of the above-listed issues ever again.

5. Family therapist

A family is usually a pillar of a healthy work-life balance and in a present-day world where people have a hard time keeping it all together. This is where a family therapist comes in and helps people get the most out of the situation that’s not so ideal. The problem with this lies in the fact that some people are embarrassed to admit that they have a problem, which makes them reluctant to confide in a therapist. They also avoid this step for too long, which only allows their problems to escalate. A skilled and empathetic family therapist can help effectively defuse this situation early on.

6. Massage therapist

Sometimes, helping people get physical relief can be as rewarding as providing them with aid on an emotional level. The reason why this is a career choice that’s so rewarding for an empath is that it allows one to see a visible relief on the face of a person after every single session. For someone who has entered the industry just so that they can help people, there’s really no greater reward. Not to mention that the paycheck is quite formidable and that you can both seek active employment and start your own practice.


In the end, when it comes to the issue of career choice, personal preferences are always a dominant factor. Keep in mind that it’s possible to find employment in each of the above-listed industries and that every single one of them is lucrative enough to be worthy of your consideration.
