Is “High Sensitivity” a Disorder?
                                                                                                     

 

There is no specific “disorder” that is listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. There is also a range of symptoms across some mental disorders that point to or relate to characteristics similar to high sensitivity.

 

It is important to understand that the highly sensitive trait:

•   Can occur alongside a mental disorder, or

•   Can be overstated as a mental disorder when it is a natural trait, or

•   Can be understated as simply a trait when there is actually a mental disorder present.

 

Essentially, it will be helpful to discuss challenges with being a HSP in counselling. Being a HSP does not excuse you from anxiety, shame, depression and relationship issues drive that people counselling.
