Are you ready to build stronger relationships in your personal and professional life?

Empathy First courses are designed to give you the confidence to connect with those around you on a deeper level.

Just think

How much better would your career, your relationships, you life be if you ...

- Listened without judgment?

- Made those around you feel safe and heard?

- Took care of your own mental health?

- Got comfortable with the uncomfortable?

- Challenged your perceptions of emotions and empathy?

Hi, I'm Leanne Butterworth!

If you think this course will be endless slides, lectures and checklists - think again.

That's not my style.

I want empathy to be fun, memorable and relatable so that you can apply these skills to every aspect of your life.

It won't be easy but it will be rewarding.

Over the last 4 years I have developed the Lose Your Mind Virtual Reality Empathy Training Program and presented it to audiences in Australia and the USA. I have participated in Business Accelerators and won awards for focusing on enhancing empathy in our workplaces and communities.

I am also mum to Rowan and Zara.
