National Centre for High Sensitivity

Promoting awareness, fulfilment and harmonious, authentic living in the highly sensitive population

Welcome to the National Centre for High Sensitivity

The NCHS is sadly closing due to struggles sustaining funding and also the health and self-care needs of its very small team. We aim to keep this website’s information going in the meantime, as a resource, and there is a possibility of a skeleton team taking on responsibilities for content and responses at some point in the future, we will let you know if that happens. The National Centre’s founder, Barbara Allen, wishes you all well and looks forward to continuing to support HSPs, their parents and those who provide services to them from her part-time private practice, Growing Unlimited Consultancy.

HSP Directory

Our directory of professionals offering services to HSPs is still here for now, do take a look if you are looking for someone to assist you, or you can find an international list on Dr Elaine Aron’s website.
