Having just returned from an inspiring weekend conference, I thought I’d share some thoughts.
It is a unique experience to be in a room with so many other sensitive people. Sharing an understanding of what it means to be highly sensitive in an awkward and sometimes uncomfortable world.
HSP’s are becoming more aware of their individual talents and gifts.
•Deep empathic understanding
•Being able to see the ‘bigger picture’
In my experience of working with highly sensitive clients, many have issues in managing their daily internal dialogue. They are prone to seeing themselves as different from others, internalise problems leaving them feeling inadequate or generally flawed. Counselling can help by exploring issues of self esteem and provide some clarity understanding of their inner processes.
Self-care is important for HSP's including with emphasis on:
"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion,
some compassion, some humour, and some style."
