Hampshire, SP11 7DH, Andover
A day to look at how your sensory processing sensitivity relates to the unique joys and challenges of being close to another person. How do we set the scene and maintain an environment within which we can 'know and be known'? The day will include information, discussion and small group work.
This will not be group therapy, but you will likely find it therapeutic and the day may touch on some sensitive areas. By the end of the day, you will hopefully have a better understanding of your trait, a sense of how you are doing, what you have to offer in relationships that are important to you and an idea of where and how you could increase the quality of engagement and meaning. Be prepared to take part with an open mind and to leave with more questions than you arrived with :).
Suitable for HSPs who are in a good enough place to use the day for their personal development, whilst being a steadfast and gentle support to others in the group. You should at the very least have read Dr Elaine Aron's book 'The Highly Sensitive Person' in order to have an accurate context for the day.
It is not unusual for the topic of relationships to trigger emotions or a need for further work, so do have in mind before the event, a friend or therapist that you can talk to in the days or weeks following, who can give you if required, a listening ear, opportunity for reflection and gentle feedback. Participants are naturally requested to treat details of other participants with discretion.
Please bring a packed lunch. Refreshments will be provided in the morning and afternoon breaks. For a limited number of those travelling, it may be possible to provide a bed for the Friday night here (£20), or there are a few B&B places in the surrounding villages. The nearest train station is Andover (1.5 miles), there are plenty of taxis there.
Fee: £40. There are no concessions for this event. Places are strictly limited in order to offer the best environment for enrichment.
