What we're about

Highly Sensitive People (HSP) are often misunderstood and their talents can go unrecognised. Positively Sensitive Network can help individuals to meet others like themselves, discover and develop the authentic, sensitive side of their personality and communicate effectively. The network will also enable Highly Sensitive People to share their experiences, educate themselves about sensory processing sensitivity and thrive :)

A membership fee of £10 for each year is asked of each new Group Member, this helps to cover some of the background admin, paid and voluntary helpers, Meetup.com fees and some of the concessionary places on our events. Growing Unlimited Therapeutic Consultancy, a private practice established in 2002 by Barbara Allen sponsors, presents and supports these events in a variety of ways, occasionally with the assistance of paid and voluntary helpers. Barbara also promotes the fledgling National Centre for High Sensitivity, a service in development, aimed at providing information, links, training and support around Sensory Processing Sensitivity for sensitive adults and parents of sensitive children. She and a small team of volunteers are currently working to obtain independent funding for the NCHS so that it can provide events similar to these meet-ups on a national level. If you would like more information on our Meet-ups here, or the NCHS, please do not hesitate to contact Barbara through this website.

We look forward to meeting you :)

Pay your ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP PAYMENT 🌻 June 2017 to June 2018 🌻 "

Hello everyone 😊 Your Annual Membership Fees help support admin, events and our Newsletter (www.hspsensitive.com/contact-us/) through the National Centre for High Sensitivity, here is a place to pay your annual membership fee of £10 per year :). If you have recently joined and paid a £10 joining fee in the last few months, please subtract 84p for every full month already paid for and pay what's left. Next year (2017), simply pay the full fee as per normal. To pay, simply click 'RSVP' here on this event and the site will take you through the PayPal payment process automatically. If you would like to pay by direct banking, please email Barbara for details. If you won't be subscribing to our Meetup this year from June 2017, please remove yourself from the membership list by 10th June. Don't worry, you can re-join any time :) See below for the exceptions to needing to pay your fee this year - if you are in any of these categories, please email me so that I can update you as paid and keep you on the Membership list. EXCEPTIONS Some of you may belong to more than one of the three Meetup.com sites I organize, (Growing Unlimited Hampshire; Positively Sensitive Reading; National Centre for High Sensitivity) - if so, you only need to pay once - that will mean your annual membership to any of the others remains free of charge for the year. If you voluntarily facilitate one of our NCHS Meetups. If your financial circumstances are exceptionally dire and cannot afford the £10 annual charge, please email me and I will see what I can do - I don't want anyone to miss out if they really can't afford this, however I am guessing the fee will be affordable for the vast majority. IMPORTANT: The cut off date for payment for current members is 10th of June 2017. After that, the next payment will be in June 2018. I do hope that you will stay with us and enjoy the events and discussions board coming up over the next few months :) If you have any questions, please email me and I will do my best to help 😊

Needs a date and time

Needs a location

Date to be confirmed. Welcome to our HSP meetup in Berkshire. We look forward to welcoming new and old members who would like information on the Highly Sensitive Nervous System and to meet others like themselves! The meetup lasts for one and a half hours with a break in the middle for tea/coffee and biscuits etc. Facilitated gently so that you can relax as much as possible and enjoy the time together with other HSPs. This is an information meeting, with opportunity to share ideas and tips on living life to the full as an HSP, run in a supportive atmosphere but not a therapy group. Call Barbara on[masked] if you need more information, otherwise do go ahead and RSVP - we look forward to seeing you there :)
