HSP Certification Program

Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)
Certification Program

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.

Over the last two decades, with more research and exploration of the trait being conducted, we are now able to put forth tools and methods to help professionals provide appropriate treatment for their HSP clients.

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 and support for HSPs are different and far more effective than what is appropriate for other clientele
  • 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
