The Stats

15-20% of all children is considered to fall within the spectrum of high sensitivity and yet it’s a term still largely unrecognised in the UK.

That’s over 1.5m highly sensitive children currently in the education system in Britain, or between 2-5 in every single class.

Many of these children will be experiencing anxiety, stress, depression and potential long-term mental health problems as a result of lack of awareness within all levels of the education and medical profession.

“Almost every adult coming to me for psychotherapy is a highly sensitive person who was raised by parents or enrolled in a school that at best largely ignored them, so that they felt unimportant or, at worst (and more often) treated them as if there was something deeply wrong with them at their core.” Dr Elaine Aron
