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).

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.
