Making sense of high sensitivity makes sense

You’ve read about highly sensitive people, maybe you’ve taken Elaine Aron’s self-test, and now you are wondering what is next. You wonder if this is the missing piece in your journey to feeling better.

Wondering what is different about yourself

Until now, you have never been able to put your finger on what it is about yourself that makes you feel different from everyone else. Relationship discord affects you deeply, you dig deep into understanding small nuances, you struggle with overwhelming sensory input. You may resonate with aspects of other neurodiversity, yet none of it quite fits you.

HSP is Not New

HSP research is not new. It’s been going on for the past 25 or so years. Awareness of HSP has been growing in the public recently, and information is becoming more widely available. The logo in the centre of the badge to the left was created by Anne-Kathrin Walter. Read more about HSP and the origins of this image. 

Neurodiversity and HSP

HSP is a normal difference in the wide range of human experience, affecting 20-30% of people. It has four main features: processing information at a deep level, high attention to detail, high empathy and emotion, and overstimulation from higher sensory sensitivity. Sometimes this experience can create a feeling of difference, cause confusion growing up that leads to distress in life, or pose relationship challenges, and more. Building a better understanding of how HSP shows up in your life can help with finding your own path of thriving and feeling good.

Meet life expecting to feel good!

When you don’t understand what you are experiencing, it’s easy to become burnt out and overwhelmed. Knowledge is power, and you can gain so much peace by understanding how your needs can be met, so you can meet life with the expectation of feeling good!
