One in five people are highly sensitive, are you? 

Do you have a rich and complex inner life?

Are you easily overwhelmed?

Do you take on the emotions of other people?

Being highly sensitive affects everything from work to sex to taking psychedelics. 

20% of people have a nervous system wired to be more sensitive, making us more attuned to the subtleties of our environment, and able to process information more deeply. This is a superpower! But we can experience it as sensory overwhelm in a world not set up for us.

Meet Your Guide: Boe Huntress

I am a thriving highly sensitive person. I have been a facilitator of groups for over ten years, running womxn's groups, co-gender groups, screen addiction courses, archetype courses and mentoring. I have done a foundation course with the British Psychotherapy Foundation on Jungian theory and a foundation in Group Analysis. I was the Artist in Residence at Union Chapel (London) for five years, making multi-disciplinary immersive events.

I am a group facilitator and guide, not a therapist. I hold spaces to support people to engage healthily with their emotions and inner life. I have personally been on a journey as a highly sensitive person and feel in a place where I can support others to do the same.
