Valuing my sensitive self – Workshop

Barnsley Recovery and Wellbeing College, 33 Gawber Road, Barnsley S75 2AH

Looking After Myself

Sensitivity is something that we all experience from time to time especially when we encounter social situations. However, this can be perceived as a negative personality trait that is not valued or appreciated by others.

However, like all personality traits, there are positives and negatives associated with sensitivity but with proper understanding and recognition, sensitivity can be perceived as a strength and something to be valued.

This workshop explores the gifts that come with sensitivity including improved insight, empathy and being in tune with the needs of others. By using self-care techniques, you will start to reduce the impact of rumination, low self-esteem and reframe negative thinking.

You will also come to recognise that self-care is essential, particularly when faced with stressful situations and by limiting your exposure to highly stimulating environments and by prioritising your wellbeing, you will see an improvement in your overall experience.
