Highly Sensitive Child/Teen Counseling

Highly Sensitive Counseling

What is highly sensitive?   As reported by Dr. Aron"A highly sensitive child is one of the 15-20% of children born with a nervous system that is highly aware and quick to react to everything.


This makes them: 

  • quick to grasp subtle changes, 

  • prefer to reflect deeply before acting, 

  • generally behave conscientiously 

  • easily overwhelmed by high levels of stimulation, sudden changes, and the emotional distress of others."


"Because children are a blend of a number of temperament traits, some HSCs are fairly difficult–active, emotionally intense, demanding, and persistent–while others are calm, turned inward, and almost too easy to raise except when they are expected to join a group of children they do not know. But outspoken and fussy or reserved and obedient, all HSCs are sensitive to their emotional and physical environment."

Is my child highly sensitive you ask?
One way to know is to complete the online questionnaire ‘Is Your Child Highly Sensitive?‘, which also provides a good sense of what is meant by a “highly sensitive child.” This one way to know if a child is highly sensitive, but not always accurate for a given child. Another way to know is to read more and work with us to unpack the trait.
