LONDON HSP MENTORING APPOINTMENTS
(Annual leave 14.1.13 to 18.2,13)
Sometimes it helps to talk about things, and finding someone qualified and experienced to listen to you is a first step in the right direction. I have been offering clients counselling and emotional support for over 19 years, for personal, relationship or work-related matters including self-esteem and confidence, depression, anger, loss, life changes, distress, trauma, anxiety, abuse, and addictions. I am a specialist in the motivation and support of change and work with individuals, couples or groups in group therapy. I also have specialist skills in supporting people with highly sensitive nervous systems (sensory processing sensitivity) or HSPs, and in supporting creative people. My practice is based in Andover, Hampshire.
A free initial consultation for counselling is offered, so that we can discuss whether this is the right time and setting for you to do the work you wish to do, and to decide if we feel we can work helpfully together. I am an integrative counsellor, this means that together we will assess which way of working suits you best and my style of working will be tailored to your needs as an individual.
NATIONAL & INTERNATIONAL EVENTS FOR HIGHLY SENSITIVE
26/27 JANUARY - COLORADO, USA - A two-day workshop "My Sensitive Heart" - exploring what helps to keep the foundations of your sensitivity happy and healthy. We will explore Boundaries, Intuition, Trusting Inner Wisdom, Relationships and Healing Past Wounds, all in a beautiful setting close to the Rocky Mountains. Go to Lifeworkshelp.com for further details.
15 MARCH - LEICESTER - SUPPORTING HIGHLY SENSITIVE CHILDREN - £50 - Not to be missed! A whole day for professionals and interested parents on identifying and supporting highly sensitive children; suitable for therapists, teachers, nursery workers, social workers and care, medical or support workers.
According to Dr Elaine Aron, at least 15% of any population are born with the trait of sensory processing sensitivity, being highly sensitive. Talking to highly sensitive adults, they often point to being misunderstood or misinterpreted by important professionals or family members, leading to failure to reach potential or even failure to thrive. At this workshop you will find out what SPS is and what it is not. Why it really matters that Highly sensitive children are understood. How to identify and support highly sensitive children. Explore ways in which you could improve your practice. You will also learn about selective mutism and 'quiet children' and discuss how this might fit into the picture of high sensitivity. Above all else, you will come away with knowledge and inspiration, knowing you really can make a difference to the wellbeing, education and support of highly sensitive children who have so much potential.
The workshop will be led by Barbara Allen-Williams, an experienced therapist, trainer and mentor for highly sensitive people with sensory processing sensitivity. Barbara has a private practice in Hampshire and is founder of the National Centre for High Sensitivity (www.hspsensitive.com). She has worked consciously with highly sensitive adults (HSPs) and children (HSCs) for over ten years and provides a variety of workshops for professionals and highly sensitive people. Barbara will be joined by Michael Jones, a speech and language specialist and writer working with quiet children (http://www.talk4meaning.co.uk/) and Bridget Woodward, a teacher who has worked with children in a variety of creative ways and has a special interest in highly sensitive children (http://whiteheron.co.uk/).
