In the late 1990’s the Sensory Processing Sensitivity (SPS) trait (also known as Highly Sensitive Person or HSP) was identified by Dr. Elaine Aron and colleagues. Affecting 15-20% of the population, this trait has a strong influence on the ability to interact and thrive in the everyday world as common stimuli from the environment produce uncommon reactivity in the nervous system of HSPs, resulting in biological and psychological challenges. Many clients are being treated for depression and anxiety without acknowledgement or treatment of their underlying SPS/HSP trait. This is crucial to their overall psychological health and recovery.

Why become HSP certified?

  • Highly Sensitive People account for 15-20% of the population
  • 30-50% of therapy clients are HSPs struggling with depression, anxiety and other mental challenges
  • Identifying as an HSP relieves many psychosomatic issues
  • The methods & support for HSPs are different and far more effective than what is appropriate for other clients
  • The more HSP certified professionals there are, the more awareness will be brought to this unique trait and subsequently, improved/effective care will be more readily available

  • Understand how to assess the sensitivity trait in their clients
  • Identify common mistaken conditions and characteristics
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the neurological process of sensory processing sensitivity
