Highly Sensitive People, Empaths, and Deep Feelers

North Shore Counselling

Highly Sensitive People (HSP) have this beautiful knack for experiencing the world in a deeper, more profound way. This really is a remarkable gift -  an unparalleled sensitivity to the world around them including picking up on subtle details, emotions, and the world's intricacies. This heightened sensitivity is what makes HSPs incredibly empathetic and attuned to the nuances that others may overlook.

Yet, as special as this gift is, it can also present its unique set of challenges, especially in a world that often seems to move at such a fast pace. Highly sensitive people can sometimes feel overwhelmed or overstimulated by the hustle and bustle of modern life and may find it hard to set boundaries and say no as they can often feel for others.

Do any of these sound familiar? 

  • I care deeply about others

  • I am easily affected by others emotions

  • I struggle with setting boundaries and saying no

  • I tend to people please

  • I do my best to avoid making mistakes or forgetting things

  • I can be easily moved by works of art or intense stories on the news

  • I find myself easily affected by strong stimuli like bright lights or loud noises
