Treatment for Highly Sensitive People in Charleston
Are you a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)?
Does environmental stimulation, like loud noises, strong smells, and bright lights, easily overwhelm you, and do others tell you that you are “too sensitive”?
Does the term “perfectionist” fit the bill for you and do you have people-pleasing tendencies?
Do you tend to be really self-critical?
If yes, you might be what Elaine Aron has dubbed a “Highly Sensitive Person”, or HSP. HSPs are super sensitive to social, physical, and emotional stimuli, a condition referred to as “Sensory Processing Sensitivity” (SPS for short).

Being an HSP can be a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, you might experience the joys of music and food and art more intensely; but unfortunately, that may also be true of anxiety, sadness, and physical and emotional pain.
These feelings can eventually become overwhelming. Worse, existing traumas, family of origin issues, and repeated misunderstandings and dismissals by those close to us can exacerbate these problems.
The result is often:
- Feelings of hopelessness
- Impaired self-confidence
HSP Therapy Can Help
Having a regular time and space to speak in confidentiality with a therapist who really understands you can be tremendously helpful. Engaging in in-depth therapeutic work can help build resilience and inner strength, allowing you to navigate life’s obstacles with more grace.
In addition, it can help Increase self-awareness and self-confidence, as well as alleviate anxiety and depression.
You might also gain personal insights and new ways of understanding your sensitivities that lead to healthier boundaries in relationships.
Finally, in-depth therapy can help resolve personal traumas and improve romantic, platonic, and professional relationships.
