Highly Sensitive Persons (HSP) Therapy Group

Highly Sensitive Persons (HSP) Therapy Group 

Dear Colleagues,
Many of you all may be familiar with Dr. Elaine Aron's research on Highly Sensitive Personality (HSP).  About 15-20% of the population has this trait, but it is estimated that a full 50% of our clients do.  It is often the source of much suffering and misunderstanding, as this type of sensitivity goes against the grain of "normal" American culture.  HSPs are more affected by sensory subtleties, have autonomic nervous systems that become easily overaroused, are more emotionally reactive (and typically very empathic), and both prefer and require a greater depth of processing of their lives than do most people.
 
I am planning to begin a therapy group on Sunday evenings, 7:00-8:30pm for HSPs who would benefit both from the normalization of this trait and from forming connections with others who share it.  The cost is $50 per session and we will begin as soon as there are at least five suitable group members ready to start (hopefully October).  The group is designed to be an adjunct to (rather than a substitute for) individual therapy, and I would welcome and appreciate referrals of your highly sensitive clients.  Please email or call me for more information or to make a referral.
