Happy Sensitive Community

My favorite part of the community is being accepted for who you are, and getting to talk to other people that just “get” you…Amanda

Is this you?

You want people in your life who understand your sensitivity. People with whom you don’t have to defend yourself, explain yourself or feel weird for being Highly Sensitive

You want to be part of a community that…

  • …is positive without being fake
  • …is compassionate, without being a “complain club”.
  • …has depth and facilitates conversations that truly feed you.
  • …is a place to learn more about how to work with your sensitivity.

 

The Happy Sensitive Community is much more than an online group or forum. 

 1. Private Group on Twist

This is our online connection hub and discussion springboard. Twist is a new platform that is clean and organised and basically very HSP-friendly. Only people in the group can read comments, or even see who is in it, so it’s very private.

There is a monthly HSP topic on which I’ll share several articles a week (that I don’t share anywhere else). This way you’ll learn more about being HSP each month both from me and from others in the group (through discussions). You can post your questions and insights. You’ll receive tips on handling overwhelm and practical ways to enjoy your sensitivity.

You also receive exclusive podcasts that I make for the community.

I truly appreciate the podcasts Caroline has done even though I don’t usually listen to podcasts because I used to find them too long-winded.B.

Twist has no adds, no clutter. We have organised discussion threads and there is also a place to chat freely (so you don’t have to worry about where your comment or question fits). You can join from your browser, or with one of the desktop apps (Windows, Mac) or mobile apps (android, iOS).

 

Getting started was super easy to do, and I really like the first feel of this platform.E. member
It usually takes me a while to get into something new. It seems simple though.H. member

 

2. Virtual 1-on-1 Tea

Each month, there is the option to meet 1-on-1 with one other person in the group and discuss a specific HSP topic together. You’ll receive a different discussion exercise each month – related to that month’s theme – to help you learn something practical about how your own sensitive nature works.

You can meet up with a new person each month. You can also join in every once in a while, depending on the topics that interest you most. This way, over time, you can get to know the other people in the group as much more than picture squares that magically produce text somehow (which, let’s face it, gets old and weird after a while).


 

A group of HSPs is the perfect setting to explore how you can be more of your sensitive self in your communication with others (both inside and outside of the group). Many of us “hold back and hide” in various ways, to avoid being judged or overwhelmed. Unfortunately, that also stifles our creativity, self-expression, and our ability to feel good in our own skin and get all our needs met.

 

Talking more openly here is definitely helping me to start doing this outside of the community too.member
I am so glad that everyone is here and so involved with the group (…) this group is a way of grounding for me. The things everyone shares help so much.member
I’m so relieved to get on this page and read that someone else is feeling just as I have or has spoken my thoughts/concerns beautifully. Even if I don’t have the energy to engage at that particular moment, someone is doing or saying something divine, and it helps a LOT! Thank you.member

 

Why I started this community

Many of the clients I have worked with over time would mention that they didn’t know any other people who were also Highly Sensitive. As a result, the only sounding board they had for what was “normal” for HSPs was me!

I know there are so many little ways in which it’s hard to believe that your sensitivity is normal. When you are the only HSP you know, it’s hard to imagine that there are plenty of other people out there who share your sensitivities.

That’s why I started this group. I know how much of a difference it can make when you hear from others who say “me too”… instead of “what do you mean?”. When you really “get” that you are not alone, that you are truly Highly Sensitive and that there are many others in the world who share those traits, this will boost your confidence and clarity in who you are. It means you can stop apologising for being different. It also means you can ask others about how they deal with their high sensitivity in all the little ways this shows up in daily life.

I just joined this awesome community two weeks ago and already I’m feeling very much supported and in awe of the beautiful talents of members of this group! The virtual tea is a lovely way to connect too and I truly appreciate the podcasts Caroline has done even though I don’t usually listen to podcasts because I used to find them too long-winded. Thank you for creating this wonderful online community and your loving support!B.

 

What this group isn’t

Many people who visit my site have questions about energy: “I think I may be an empath. Are all these emotions I’m feeling mine? “How do I let go of energy overwhelm?” “I’m an empath and need help!” Please note, these are not questions that can be answered in an online group. It’s too complicated and confusing. If you need help with empath experiences then I have a specific programme to help you here.

If you’re going through a really rough time and need a support group, please note that this group is not it! This is not a place for therapy, counseling or ready-made friends. The other people here are sensitive and more easily overwhelmed too and while this is a supportive group, it can only be so in moderation. This is mainly a space to learn about and share experiences with being Highly Sensitive and meeting other people who understand.

Join the Community!

Your first 2 months are free. After that, the monthly membership fee is 9 euros .

I really want to make this place accessible for as many people as possible, regardless of income.

However, there has been some nastiness in the past due to some people joining and then filing mean paypal disputes because they didn’t read what they actually signed up for (Good news, those people leave the group quickly without talking to anyone. Bad news, they cost me a LOT of time.)

So I’ve added a “bouncer”. He’s big and handsome (believe me!), just like at a nightclub and he will ask you some questions below to make sure you know what club you’re trying to get into.


After giving paypal permission to collect the monthly membership fee*, you’ll be redirected to the community on Twist.

*Membership is monthly. If at any time you want to leave, just log into your paypal dashboard and cancel the recurring subscription. The first 2 months are free.

 

Questions you may have:

 

“How many people are in the group?” – We are starting a new group on Twist. This is why the first 2 months are free. It will take a little time to build a group.

“So where are the testimonials coming from?” – The Happy Sensitive Community has a private Facebook group that has been active for over 3 years. That’s where the member testimonials are coming from. The community on Twist will be the same in essence, just on a different, quieter platform.
