Nurturing the Numinous - Mentoring and Support Day
Sun, 28 Jan 2018 10:00

This is a support day for those who are, or are well on the way to being, HSP role-models and who already have responsibilities or an interest in the development of highly sensitive people. If you have known about the trait of high sensitivity for some time, have read about it and are on a conscious path to authentic HSP living, then this day is about you. It is about support for you as an individual, through group discussion and experience.


Topics that will likely surface over the series of day-events will include:

•  What it means to be a role-model, ethics of learning while leading at the same time. 

• The relationship between self-care and your work. Maintaining compassion for self in a non-HSP dominated world.


• Balancing earning in vocational work with the messages we receive about success. 

• Examining your support network of like-minded colleagues, friends or family. 


• The role of empowered HSPs in society.


•  Other topics that may arise from your pre-event comments or as the day goes on.

There will be two or three of these events each year to join if you wish, so that you can progress your development as a role-model, hopefully with known others who are with you on the same path.

I look forward to spending a whole day with you, exploring what matters to you, supporting your dreams and intentions and above all, enjoying that special energy that surrounds us in a room full of sensitive people :)

Please bring a packed lunch :)


NB: Please do not attend if you want to receive a stack of documents, a certificate, or are thinking of this as a substitute for academic training. Whilst there is a lot to learn here, this day is about you. You need to attend with your personal head in the foreground and professional head in the background, even though the day will likely have a very positive effect on your professional path. You will find out why this is important by the end of the day.

Helen and Michelle, local HSPs will be there to facilitate exploration of topics related to this trait and the art of sensitive living.  This is an information rather than a therapy group, however, you may find the discussions have poignant moments. You are welcome to join in discussions, or just to listen or chat in the break if you prefer. To find out whether you may have high sensitivity, do try Dr Elaine Aron's self-test on her website at <a>www.hsperson.com.</a>

If you have any questions about the Meetup, please contact Helen or Barbara by email through this site and we will be delighted to help. If you need information on other events hosted by the National Centre for High Sensitivity, please call Barbara on[masked] or go to the events page at <a>www.hspsensitive.com.</a>


Early RSVP is advised as places will be limited.  Fee for the Meetup is £10 (concessions available).  You can book your place at the Meetup by RSVP-ing here and making a payment via Paypal (simply follow the process as you RSVP).  You can also pay by direct banking if you prefer (ask Barbara for details).  

Refreshments provided in the break, please bring something with you if you have any special dietary requirements.

Parking and trains:  The venue is five minutes walk from Charing Cross Station and twenty minutes walk from Central or Queens Street Station.  There is free parking in the town car parks on Sundays.

Being Seen and Heard as a Sensitive Person - £40 - NEW DATE
Sun, 04 Feb 2018 10:00

A one-day personal development workshop in a gentle, HSP-friendly environment. HSPs often talk about difficulties in communication, especially around areas of conflict or fast-paced dialogue, whether at work or at home. Coping with others' emotions is not as easy as it sounds when your natural trait makes your own so intense and your own over-arousal, fears or concern for others gets in the way. What can we learn about how to be seen and heard whilst remaining authentic and meeting our natural needs? 

This workshop is for those HSPs who are on a path of personal development and empowerment. You need to be in a place where you feel able to share, learn and offer support to the group, whether by contributing to discussions or simply by your quiet, reflective listening. It is hoped you will find the workshop increases confidence and validates your sensitivity as well as creating a space in which to meet others like yourself in warmth and authenticity.

Payment please by via PayPal to [masked] (this is enabled when you RSVP here on this event), cheque made payable to 'Growing Unlimited' to above venue address, or contact Barbara for online banking details.  If for any reason you are unable to attend, please, please, update your RSVP early. 

Please bring a packed lunch. Refreshments will be available in coffee and tea breaks. NB: we have pets on the premises.  Lift-sharing from local garden centre encouraged as parking at the venue can accommodate six cars only.  Do use comments box to liaise :).

LONDON Professionals CPD - Introduction to Sensory Processing Sensitivity
Sat, 24 Feb 2018 10:00

This will be a one-day training CPD event for therapists and other professionals who would like to understand more about Sensory Processing Sensitivity and how you can be more effective and supportive with highly sensitive clients.  Suitable for therapists, coaches, teachers, social workers and health/mental health workers.  Venue to be confirmed soon. If you would be interested, please RSVP and pay here by Paypal, or contact Barbara for direct banking details.

As professionals, we owe it to our sensitive clients to understand their trait and to work with them appropriately in the context of their sensory processing sensitivity (SPS). Referring to the renowned work of Dr Elaine N Aron and Barbara's extensive experience in the area of SPS, this workshop will explore, through information and discussion, how we identify and work with sensitive people, plus common myths, misdiagnoses and assumptions that can cause professionals to focus on sensitivity as an 'issue' rather than asset.

We will look at the importance of awareness and how we as professionals can give our full support to a group who make up the majority of our clients.  We will also take time to consider self-care for Professionals who are also highly sensitive, and the joys and challenges of this work for both HSP and non-HSP professionals.


Barbara Allen-Williams is the founder of Growing Unlimited Therapeutic Consultancy (2002) and the fledgling National Centre for High Sensitivity (2010).  She retired from private practice after 20 years as a therapist and supervisor in April 2013 and uses her experience and observations to promote training, awareness and best practice with highly sensitive adults and children.  Training is aimed therapists, parents, social workers, employers, teachers, nursery workers and other professionals.  She has a practice in Andover, Hampshire where she runs Meetups and personal development events for sensitive people.  She has also co-hosted HSP Gathering Retreats and HSP Workshops and Weekends in UK, Europe and USA.

HSP Rest and Recovery Retreat - £225 (£60 deposit)
Fri, 20 Apr 2018 16:00

Two gentle nights for HSPs seeking to be actively encouraged to sleep, rest, relax, laugh, recover and enjoy quiet time with other sensitive people.  Breakfast and Lunch as and when you please, then Dinner all together each evening, taking turns to cook. Minimum four people, maximum six, plus Barbara.

Two nights in total. Arrive on Friday[masked]pm, leave by 4pm on Sunday. 

THE ACCOMMODATION


Our rest space is located as far as possible in natural surroundings.  The area will be near to places for walking, wildlife watching or simply relaxing.  Do feel free to travel further afield if there is something you want to do.  Go on your own or ask someone if they want to go with you.

THE SUPPORT

• Reminders and full permission to sleep/nap, walk, meditate, snack and generally meet your restful needs as and when you want to.


• Opportunity to book 1-1 time with Barbara to deepen your understanding of your rest, relaxation and other needs as an HSP (included in cost of weekend).


• Encouragement to engage with other HSPs where appropriate on topics or activities that will enhance your stay, visits to local beaches and places of interest if available.


• Relaxation group and meditation time if requested.


• Full permission to 'do nothing and rest afterwards'.


• Small dog provided for cuddles or walks.

GUIDELINES

• You must be in a good enough emotional place to be able to offer as well as receive support and to be a good companion (even if you are a quiet companion).

• You should at the very least have read Dr Elaine Aron's book 'The Highly Sensitive Person' and attended HSP Meetups or something similar before attending.

• You need to be able to meet your own needs and organise your own activities where appropriate.

• Be prepared to share a bedroom with one other person and follow the rule that there is no talking in bedrooms unless the person sharing with you makes it clear they would like this.  Some people will be in bed during the daytime to get some quiet time, to read, sleep or to calm themselves - do respect this.  If someone is asleep, try not to wake them.

• Bring earphones so that you can enjoy music etc quietly in the same room.  Bring ear plugs or eye covers if you are sensitive to noise or light, also bring anything with you that makes you more comfortable (hot water bottle, special blanket or pillow, guitar, art supplies, books).

Price of £225 includes shared accommodation for two nights and Barbara's special mentoring support and guidance in the background throughout the weekend.

Re food, each person will be paired up with another HSP and asked either to shop and provide an evening meal or light buffet lunch for the group, or to be the cleaner-uppers after meals  - Barbara will shop and prepare the meal for 7pm on the first evening and bring some basic breakfast foods for the weekend.  (If you have complex dietary needs, let Barbara know on booking but do bring your special ingredients with you and liaise with the group so that we can still enjoy eating all together simply and easily in the evenings).  Breakfast and lunch will be as and when you like, just help yourself from what is provided or bring your own. Lift-sharing is encouraged (use the comments box to link up).  Please pay a non-refundable deposit of £60 to book your place.  The remainder of the fee is due a month before the retreat. 

Please contact Barbara if you have any queries[masked] or [masked].
