Have you heard of HSP?

Have you heard of HSP?

 
 
Well, HSP stands for Highly Sensitive Person and it's probably not what you think. Around 20% of all humans and 20% of around 100 species of other animals experience HSP. Of course, the figues may be higher than this.
 
We also find that many of our clients experience HSP too and may not be aware of it or have been diagnosed with another condition, when, in fact, they rate highly on HSP traits.
 
HSP is a term for those who are thought to have an increased or deeper central nervous system sensitivity to physical, emotional, or social stimuli. HSP may also be referred to as sensory processing sensitivity (SPS).
 
If you are interested in finding out more, have a look at Elain Aron's self-test here: https://hsperson.com/test/highly-sensitive-test/
 
Of course, when doing any scales/questionnaires/quizzes, caution is always advised. However, if you feel that this applies to you, please know that is support and a listening ear available.
 
Best wishes,
 
Alexandra

Don't apologise for ....

Don't apologise for .... We work with so many clients (past and present) who always feel they need to apologise and say sorry. Apologising for saying how they feel; apologising for not meeting other people's expectations; saying sorry for putting their own needs first sometimes; apologising for not having a good day; apologising for taking up space. We don't need to say sorry for any of these things. Each and everyone of us is entitled to express our thoughts and feelings and say what we need and wan t. Each of us us entitled to assert ourselves and live our lives according to our own values, interests and expecations - not someone else's. Each one of us is entitled to and permitted to take up space and be present in this world. You don't need to say sorry for doing any of that.  You matter. You are important. You CAN take up space, because it's your right to do so. Take care, look after yourselves and have a lovely weekend. Best wishes
