Are You Struggling With Highly Sensitive Person?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Highly Sensitive Person

There’s not an official diagnosis for a highly sensitive person. But many mental health professionals recognize common traits in these people. These traits include emotional sensitivity (empathy, responsiveness), overstimulation in the company of other people, sensitivity to subtleties, and an increased depth in processing. The hallmark of a highly sensitive person is that they become overstimulated in busy environments. This response can lead to emotional or physical fatigue after interacting with people.

Available Treatment Options

Counseling interventions for highly sensitive people involve developing coping mechanisms that ensure the person has enough downtime, alone time, and self-care, so they don’t become overwhelmed and stressed, as that can lead to other chronic conditions. Therapists make space for highly sensitive people to process their emotions related to their experiences so they can understand themselves better.
