Hello and welcome

This website is for people who struggle with their deep sensitivity and strong emotions and who are – whether they know the term or not – a ‘Highly Sensitive Person‘ (HSP).

If that’s you (read on to find out more), I hope what you find here will help you understand, embrace and manage your sensitivity rather than fight it.

You might even come to love it!

The website may also be helpful for people who live with or know an HSP.  If that’s you, I hope it helps you make better sense of the HSP in your life, and benefits you both.

One paradox, one surprising statistic

Being a Highly Sensitive Person is a curious thing.

It can feel like your sensitivity is the root of so many difficulties and judgements. Something to change or hide or apologise for.

Yet that same sensitivity is your gift – the essence of who you are and what you bring to the world.

And you’re not alone. It’s estimated that 1 in 5 people are HSPs.

Doesn’t that feel different? Still a minority but not the tribe of one you may have been thinking.

Are you an HSP?

Are you someone who does things ‘deeply’ – like feel, think, process, care, connect, hurt?
Do you notice details and nuances that others don’t register or think are important?

Have you been told you’re ‘too’ something – ‘too‘ much, intense, serious, analytical?
Or that you need to “lighten up”, “toughen up” or “grow a thicker skin”?

Are you highly attuned to, and affected by, the emotions of others?
Do you feel misunderstood by, and out of sync with, others?

If you recognise these, then you might be an HSP.

This website can help you decide.

A new perspective

Most HSPs have spent a lifetime trying to change or get rid of their sensitivity.

But, as you probably know, that doesn’t work, however hard you try. Because you can’t just switch off what is naturally you.

The truth is being highly sensitive is your difference not your flaw, your gift not your shame.

Understanding that allows you to embrace your sensitivity – enjoy and deploy its benefits and manage its challenges.

I say this as an HSP myself and, far more importantly, as a retired counsellor who worked with countless HSPs.

Most didn’t realise they were highly sensitive, and told me discovering they were was …



and that it

finally makes sense of me and my life.

What can change?

This new perspective can unlock so many benefits:

  • an end to the constant conflict between you and your sensitivity
  • more energy (now it’s not used in that relentless inner battle)
  • more clarity about who you are and what you want from life
  • more capacity to manage life’s challenges
  • better relationships
  • more fun
  • a turbo boost to the power and potential you’ve always had

What now?

Let’s walk awhile together as you look around the website.

My hope is – that if you recognise any of what’s here – it can be a springboard back to who you’ve always been … but with a surer sense of what can be better for you.

Because you deserve to walk in the world as your truly authentic – and highly sensitive – self.

And to be free of the doubts that have been holding you back.

After all, who needs angst when you could have freedom!

It really is a game-changer to let being highly sensitive be the answer not the problem.
