Figs O’Sullivan describes himself as a wounded human being who helps people love each other. He’s the founder behind Empathi, committed to providing individuals and couples with the most effective practices for creating amazing relationships. We talk alligators, bunny rabbits, and other entertaining, on-the-fly metaphors for his process of unpacking conflict down to underlying fears and ultimately the biological need to thrive and feel safe.

“It’s never about the other person. It’s you and it’s about the system you’re co-creating with other human beings in the world.
