How do you know you’re Highly Sensitive?
You are aware of subtleties in your environment.
These are a few items from Elaine Aron's 27 item test, "Are you highly sensitive?" from her book, The Highly Sensitive Person. You can take her self-test now. To see if your child is highly sensitive, Elaine Aron has created another checklist.
Quoting directly from Elaine Aron's (founding researcher for HSP) website hsperson.com:
"If you find you are highly sensitive, or your child is, you need to begin by knowing the following:
I would like for you to thrive. I would like you to experience the riches of your unique sensitivity and learn to get your unique needs met as well. Being sensitive creates more awareness – you may feel out of balance or over-stimulated, even though you don’t know why. Energy work can bring balance and more specific awareness of the subtle energy centers that may be responsible for the sensations you feel.
For some being highly sensitive is at the core of their work with me. For others, it’s simply a background piece that we hold in common, creating understanding and ease. I offer a wide variety of services for body, psyche and soul.
Ienjoy working with both adults and children. Work can be short term or long term, on the phone or in person, depending on the issue. I enjoy relationships that last over time, meeting for a while and taking breaks as life’s issues cycle through. This allows for deep work as our relationship deepens.
If you are new to my work, please give me a call or e-mail me to set up a consultation. Working together is all about intangible things like relationship, resonance and connection, and we can't know what that feels like without meeting each other. So call or e-mail me to take the time to check it out. I look forward to meeting you!
