I offer a safe space in which to explore what being highly sensitive means for you.

 

Welcome. In my one-to-one sessions I offer a safe space in which to explore what being highly sensitive means for you.

Whilst each person’s experience is uniquely complex, what I have found is that there are certain recurring themes that often show up for people who recognise something of their own experience in the term ‘highly sensitive.’

  • I feel things deeply. Sometimes I feel ‘too much’ as if I were walking around without skin. 
  • I have always felt ‘different’ in some deep way.
  • There is something counter-cultural in my way of thinking.
  • There can be some very painful questions that get thrown up regularly for me around worthiness and belonging. 

If this is you I want you to know – I see you

Perhaps you have isolated yourself to some degree in your life or in some way played small because of your highly sensitive nature, but now you long for the deep connections that you thrive on.

Or perhaps you keep bravely putting yourself out there, and only you know the daily toll this takes on your sensitive nervous system. 

Without the understanding relationships and nurturing environments that we need so badly many of us get caught in lives that don’t support us anywhere near fully and in the consequent cycles of creative blockages, anxiety, and depression that are natural symptoms of our unlived life.

Working with me:

As a therapist who knows the experience of high sensitivity from my own life I offer a safe and compassionate space for you to explore both the challenges that you are faced with and and the deep gifts in your nature. 

In our one-to-one sessions you will have the opportunity to experience

  • the healing power of being recognised and understood.

  • taking a fresh look at your own story through the lens of high sensitivity.

  • the experience of how profoundly healing it is when you learn that you CAN trust your highly attuned responses to life.

 

I am here to meet you right where you are. Just as you are.

All my one-to-one sessions are by phone and online.

“Sensitive. Deep. Life changing. From the word go you always helped me to get right to the heart of the matter. I would recommend you in a heart-beat to anyone in need of support in their lives.”
