Event description
Are you Highly Sensitive and In Love? Or wondering if you can stay in love when things have been so hard. Led by Alane Freund, ICHS, LMFT

About this Event

Do you fall in love hard, but fear intimacy? Are you sick of being told that you are “too sensitive”? Do you feel like your partner just doesn't understand you? Are you in a couple with both members having competing sensitivities? Do you know how to get your needs understood and met? I think we can help.

This HSPs and Relationships Sensitivity Circle meets monthly (more as requested) and is a one month at a time commitment. We meet for about 75 minutes (plan for 90 in case we go over) and each person has time for individual coaching as well as group activities to support our relationship journeys.

Highly Sensitive People are different than those without the trait in terms of intimate relationships. We want and need to have deep intimate connections with both friends and romantic partners. Relationships with other HSPs and with 80 percenters both hold special challenges. But, we must also add in consideration of the other temperaments and personality traits, sex and gender, family of origin, introversion (70% of HSPs) and extroversion, and more, in order to understand who and how we are in a relationship.

Research shows that couples who understand personality and temperament in themselves and their partners are significantly more successful as couples. Each member of our circle will be invited to share a challenge and receive experience, strength, and hope from coach and family therapist, Alane Freund. We will focus on support and solutions shared as a community. Space is limited to 8 participants in each circle. To reserve ongoing spots, please purchase in advance.

Statistics show that 50 percent of what determines divorce is genetic temperament. And, if you are one of the 20 percent of people who are born highly sensitive, the risk of an unhappy relationship is especially high. Your finely tuned nervous system, which picks up on subtleties and reflects deeply, would be a romantic asset if both you and your partner understood you better. But without that understanding, your sensitivity is likely to be making your close relationships painful and complicated.

Based on Elaine N. Aron’s groundbreaking research on temperament, intimacy, and leadership in relationships with Highly Sensitive People, our coaching circle offers practical help for highly sensitive people seeking happier, healthier romantic relationships. From low-stress fighting to sensitive sexuality, we will discuss practical advice for different personality combinations, including how to use the self tests to better understand oneself and each other.

Love is Love, LGBTQ+ HSPs/HSQs are most welcome in this group.
