Empathetic Listening

Empathy is the ability to project oneself into the personality of another person in order to better understand that person's emotions or feelings. Through empathic listening the listener lets the speaker know, "I understand your problem and how you feel about it, I am interested in what you are saying and I am not judging you."

In so doing, the listener encourages the speaker to fully express herself or himself free of interruption, criticism or being told what to do.
