Do You Feel Anxious or Overwhelmed?

 

You might belong to the 20% of the population who has the innate trait of high sensitivity, or Sensory Processing Sensitivity.

We are known as Highly Sensitive People.

The brains of Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) process more information more deeply, which can make us experience anxiety, feel overwhelmed by stress and highly sensitive to our surroundings, noise and other people. If you feel easily overstimulated then you might have the HSP trait.

As an HSP myself and a psychotherapist I specialize in anxiety, stress and the trait of high sensitivity and I've developed several resources and support which you can access via this website.
