Highly sensitive

Around 20% of all people worldwide, regardless of gender and culture, are highly sensitive. Highly sensitive people have a more permeable stimulus processing system than normal sensitive ones. This means that more stimuli from the environment as well as from inside the body (the organs for example) are absorbed and have to be processed as a result. For the everyday life of a highly sensitive person, this means that he hears, sees, smells, tastes, feels more intensely and also perceives moods, both his own and those of other people, more intensely. On the one hand this is a great gift, and on the other hand it can cause a variety of physical and mental complaints. A permanent overstimulation leaves its mark on the mental as well as on the physical level. Good handling of sensory overload as well as getting to know and assessing one's own resources are essential for the highly sensitive people. Therapy sessions are a good way to train custody in everyday life and to discover resources.
