Learning to manage you sensitivity and cultivate your strength

Therapy for Highly Sensitive People

Learn what it means to be sensitive in a

not-so-sensitive society.

High sensitivity is a trait that affects 15 to 20% of the population. Individuals with this personality trait experience "an increased sensitivity of the central nervous system and a deeper cognitive processing of physical, social and emotional stimuli."(Boterberg, Sofie; Warreyn, Petra; 2016) Despite what you may have been told, you're not "too sensitive". On the contrary, this trait can be a real superpower if cultivated with care. Sarah help's HSP's develop a deeper understanding of themselves as well as provide tools for nurturing a meaningful and fulfilling life.
