TITLE

Social Anxiety and Confidence in the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)

GUEST

Jen Perry, MSEd, MA, LPC

EPISODE OVERVIEW

A listener wrote in and said she doesn’t feel like she’s good at talking, and how can she manage her anxiety and gain confidence. We talk about how the wound of too much & not enough come into play, as well as teasing out if the listener knows what she wants to share, but gets too anxious, or if she can’t identify what she is thinking and feeling. We talk about ways we gain confidence, and then looking at expectations (which may be comparing herself to non-HSPs who are extroverts). It’s not uncommon for many Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) to have some awkwardness or angst in social settings.

GUEST BIO

Jen Perry, MSEd, MA, LPC has been a psychotherapist for 20 years. She specializes in helping Highly Sensitive People thrive in love, work, and parenting Highly Sensitive Children. Jen is passionate about using mindfulness and compassion-based approaches to ameliorate human suffering.

PODCAST HOST

Patricia is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Coach. She knows what it’s like to feel like an outcast, misfit, and truthteller. Learning about the trait of being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), helped Patricia rewrite her history with a deeper understanding, appreciation, and a sense of self-compassion. She created the podcast Unapologetically Sensitive to help other HSPs know that they aren’t alone, and that being an HSP has amazing gifts, and some challenges. Patricia works online globally working individually with people, and she teaches Online Courses for HSPs that focus on understanding what it means to be an HSP, self-care, self-compassion, boundaries, perfectionism, mindfulness, communication, and creating a lifestyle that honors us
