Has anyone ever told you that you’re “too sensitive” or to “stop overthinking everything,” particularly by people who strike you as a little bit too insensitive or who you believe might benefit from some more thinking? 

Well, you may be what is known as a “highly sensitive person,” or HSP.

Being HSP doesn’t mean you have a diagnosable condition, it’s a personality trait shared by just 20% of the population that involves increased responsiveness to both positive and negative influences. HSPs process experiences, thoughts, and feelings more deeply than non-HSPs — and with all that processing, overwhelm can happen more easily.

We can all feel overstimulated from time to time, but for HSPs it’s a way of life. And sometimes that can feel lonely, frustrating, and full of shame.

… But it doesn’t have to!

In this episode Brooke Nielsen, therapist, writer, speaker and founder of the Therapeutic Center for Highly Sensitive People, discusses what it means to be a HSP and how to appreciate the unique strengths that come along with this trait. 

Whether you’re a Highly Sensitive Person or think you might know someone who is, you’ll leave this episode with a deeper understanding of your emotions, empathy and the power that comes from understanding yourself. It’s a really good one!


“When you’re hiding a part of yourself, you take that everywhere.”


Listen to the episode below:

This episode discusses topics like…

  • What is an “HSP” and how many people are born with this genetic trait?
  • De-stigmatizing the negativity around being an HSP and why it’s so liberating to do so.
  • What trauma really is, and the role that it plays in the lives of HSPs.
  • Why just focusing on your mindset and positive thinking isn’t enough to overcome trauma.
  • Best practices for setting energetic boundaries as an HSP.
  • What to be aware of an HSP in a relationship, and how to educate your partner in the right way.
  • How to run a successful business as an HSP.
