Highly Sensitive Women's Group
This group will meet on Tuesdays at 5:30 starting weekly in June, 2018 in my Somerville, NJ office
20% of women have the innate trait of high sensitivity. If you're a highly sensitive person (HSP), it does not mean that there's something wrong with you or that you're tragically flawed.
It means you are someone who perceives the world more intensely, are more aware of and affected by subtleties in your environment, are inclined toward deep reflection and rich inner-experience, and are more easily overwhelmed by what's going on around you.
Highly sensitive women tend to have the following traits:
- Extremely in-tune and aware of the details and nuances in your environment, especially those that affect the senses such as the smell of a coworker's perfume or a subtle shift of light in the room.
- Easily overwhelmed by a lot going on around you.
- Easily effected by other people's moods or energy.
- You feel re-energized by withdrawing or isolating yourself when you feel overly stimulated.
- You worry about making mistakes, being less than perfect, or forgetting things.
- You were seen as sensitive or shy as a child.
- You are very intuitive.
- You love to research, think about options, and reflect.
- You are physically sensitive to things like medication, changes in diet, caffeine, or alcohol.
To learn more about whether you are a highly sensitive person, take this test developed by Dr. Elaine Aron.
Being highly sensitive can make you feel like you're completely different than everyone around you, or that you'll never be understood -- by yourself or others.
This group is perfect for you if you want to learn more about your trait, find out how to turn your "flaw" into a superpower, and connect with like-minded women who understand and experience the world in the same way you do.
In this group, you will find warmth, comfort, and a sense of belonging; a chance to feel valued, accepted, and supported by others; and the opportunity to gift them with the same experience.
In this group, we will discuss:
- Self care without guilt
- Healthy boundaries and how to comfortably set them
- How to calm an anxious mind and handle intense emotions
- How to see your HSP trait as an asset and treat it as such
- How to avoid overstimulation at work and at home
- Identifying barriers to having fulfilling relationships as a HSP
Members are asked to commit to at least three months to gain maximum benefit. Please note that space is limited due to the intentionally small nature of this group.
