Are you a Highly Sensitive Person? (HSP)

Being a highly sensitive person (HSP) can make you feel separate or different. However, being highly sensitive is not a disorder, it’s a personality trait, and can even become your greatest gift!

 

This isn’t something to treat or change; it’s something to better understand and thrive with.

​Highly sensitive people make up about 20% of the population

      Being an HSP means that you are naturally ultra-sensitive to sensory input, people, and your environment. You carry an ability to sense and perceive things in this world that most people are not aware of. Because of this HSPs make amazing writers, historians, philosophers, judges, artists, researchers, therapists, teachers, spiritual mentors, and parents. Many of us are here to guide the collective into a more comfortable, efficient, and sustainable way of being.

      It is common for HSPs to experience negative labelling and to be misunderstood. Being called over dramatic, weak, and possibly even experience bullying growing up in school. Often times we accidentally become extreme people pleasers, prioritizing others needs before our own, fearing conflict, disagreements, or confrontation.

      Sometimes you may have days where you feel as though you've been dropped off on the wrong planet. But the truth is, that you carry a potent medicine that the world needs.

So where do we go from here?

During our sessions we will explore 4 particular areas

Adressing the Limiting Beliefs

CBT & Narrative therapy to transform the old outdated narrative into a more empowering story that support you moving forward as a HSP.

Expanding your Window of Tolerance

DBT & Nervous System Regulation, to increase your ability to navigate bigger emotions without experiencing stress or overwhelm.

Building Trust with your Emotions

Somatic therapy to build a compassionate relationship to our bodies, understand our needs and limitations, and learning to set firm yet loving boundaries with the world around us.

Finding a Sense of Community

Navigating safe and reciprocal connections with others, finding a sense of familiarity in healthy connections with people who respect and understand what it means to be a HSP.

Every journey is unique

We begin our journey together with an introduction to grounding and nervous system regulation, so that you feel safe and confident before exploring any sensitive topics.

Then we get clear on your goals, your intentions, and create a new vision for the NEW aligned and empowered self you are destined to become.

“One of my favourite aspects of high sensitivity is finding wonder in the smallest of things.”
