"You're too sensitive!"
Are you a deep thinker? Does your head sometimes get so full, it feels like a volcano about to erupt? Do you get overwhelmed & overstimulated in busy, noisy environments? You may feel things intensely, finding the news depressing, yet are moved to tears by beautiful music or a stunning sunset.
Are you the one friends turn to when they need someone to confide in? Or maybe you find yourself sitting on a plane, the stranger next to you recounting their life story because they sense your Empathy.
Do you notice small things that others miss? Perhaps you take extra care to cut the labels out of your new clothes, or only wear soft fabrics.
You may be the person sitting in a meeting, who picks up on a key reason the project can't be delivered on time.
All these are indicators that you share the trait of High Sensitivity. Far from being a problem or a disorder, your sensitivity is a gift.
In fact, scientists are discovering that being Highly Sensitive can actually confer a distinct advantage to a person & are calling it 'Vantage Sensitivity'.
Yes, you may be struggling because your brain is wired to take in more information than others. And yes, your highly responsive nervous system will be triggered into fight or flight more readily, causing you to be susceptible to anxiety & stress.
But here's the amazing thing - once you recognise these tendencies are because of your physiology, it becomes easier to notice when you're being triggered so you can do something about it.
Being aware of your environments, managing your energy through self-care, learning techniques to deal with Overwhelm, will all help you stay in your Highly Sensitive strengths & out of the challenges.
Highly Sensitive People are here for a purpose!
Harnessing your sensitive power
The 1st step to thriving as an HSP is to fully understand your trait & how being sensitive shapes your life.
HSPs share common challenges, just because of the way we're wired. On the flip side, we have specific strengths that we've probably - mistakenly - assumed everyone shares.
Sensitive & Powerful contains everything I've learnt over decades of personal development work, applied to the Highly Sensitive Person. I share information, techniques & resources that have helped me as a Sensitive Woman, Mother & Entrepreneur.
In the Sensitive & Powerful Course, you'll learn how to:
A - Accept & Appreciate your Highly Sensitive Trait
B - set firm yet flexible Boundaries + transform any Limiting Beliefs you hold about your sensitivity
C - use your innate ability to Connect: within to your impeccable intuition, to a community of other HSPs, & to something bigger - whatever that means for you
I know how much I struggled before realising I'm Highly Sensitive, & I know there are many others out there facing similar challenges. Through creating the course & making it accessible to everyone who may need it, I aim to give HS women all the knowledge & resources they need to stand in their power & fulfil their purpose in our World.
"My biggest aspect of learning was that what I was feeling & what I had felt was OK. I felt that I had come 'home' as so much of this resonated with me. I felt that you had an insight into my life & had known me for years. I learnt to be 'me' & try & not fit this square peg into a round hole. I feel more confident to do things, & at the age of 60 I am now doing a level 2 gym instructors course."
Understand the physiology of HSPs, learn how to easily identify the trait in yourself & others, discover your key challenges & strengths & how to work with them.
Learn the powerful tools, techniques & resources that I've acquired through years of study, reading, & personal trial & error! I share the ones that work for HSPs.
Being in a community with other HSPs is incredibly validating. Once you recognise you're not the only one who feels the way you do, the healing can begin.
On everything from nutrition, self-care & exercise, all tailored specifically for the Highly Sensitive Woman. Look out for the great bonuses.
Self-study - go through the material at your own pace (available now) or Group Coaching - learn with other HSPs over an 8-week period (dates to be announced).
From Nina, via the private Facebook Group. Have your questions answered in a safe & supportive space. Available on both the self-study & group-coaching options.
"I began a course of coaching sessions with Nina & not long thereafter joined the Sensitive & Powerful course. Doing the two together really worked well for me. The course fed my nerdy academic brain with lots of information - I particularly love the fact that there are both video & written materials to keep which can be referred to at any stage. Being given the information separately from the individual coaching sessions freed up these sessions to delve more deeply into the specific areas I was struggling with at that time. I have discovered that two of my daughters are also highly sensitive & am so grateful to Nina for all the tools she's given me which is helping me to support my daughters.
Nina has a lovely calm & gentle manner & is open to discussing matters from both a scientific as well as a spiritual perspective.
I highly recommend both the Sensitive & Powerful course & the personal coaching package as I have learnt so much about myself, as well as how to view the HSP trait in a positive light."
