Sensitive Empowerment Community
Julie Bjelland, LMFT


Deactivate stress and emotional overwhelm and activate calm and balance by discovering the gifts of your neurodiversity and learning how to alleviate sensory overload and its debilitating effects.

Discover tools for HSPs and a new technique to calm your nervous system and surface the sublime gifts of your sensitivity.


As a highly sensitive person (HSP) in an often insensitive world, you may find it challenging to imagine that your sensitivity is actually a blessing that is desperately needed right now.

You’ve likely been told throughout your life that you’re too sensitive, too emotional, or just too much.

Those judgments have come from people who didn’t understand that your way of taking in life is far more intricate, deeper, and enriching not only for yourself, but for those who you allow into your inner world.

As psychotherapist Jule Bjelland teaches, HSPs are often the most original creators, innovators, teachers, healers, and leaders once they learn how to mitigate the biggest challenge to their sensitivity: sensory overload.

Sensory overload happens when your senses take in more information than your brain can process at one time. This can ignite anxiety and irritability, intensify sleep disturbances and exhaustion, and lead to loss of productivity, creativity, and focus.

During this time with Julie, you’ll learn applicable tools for overcoming sensory overload including a powerful technique that you can use anytime, anywhere to deactivate stress and activate calm, instilling a deep sense of safety in your body that allows your innate sensitivity to shine.

You’ll explore how the emotional brain of a HSP can become overstimulated, resulting in stress and reactivity that impedes your ability to take in information, access memory, and regulate your wellbeing.

Julie will provide three easy tools to help you balance your nervous system and regain clarity during moments when you’re overwhelmed by stimuli.


In this thought-provoking and practical online event, you’ll:

  • Explore what it means to be a highly sensitive person (HSP) and identify the gifts of HSPs that are desperately needed in our world today
  • Learn the 4-2-7 breath technique for deactivating stress and activating calm helping your cognitive brain turn back on to support your emotional brain
  • Discover how high sensitivity is on the neurodivergent spectrum
  • Learn the causes of some of the challenges you may be experiencing such as high stress, anxiety, sensory overload, and feeling like it’s hard to keep up with everything in life
  • Receive 3 easy tools for balancing your nervous system and increasing focus and resilience during moments of sensory overload

As an author and host of the HSP Podcast, Julie has helped millions of HSPs worldwide discover the value of their innate sensitivity.

During your time with her, you’ll explore the traits of HSPs and the gifts of this particular neurodiversity, which are becoming more widely recognized in mainstream culture.

Julie will share the science that explains why you experience life in a deep and visceral way and how that makes you distinctively insightful as a result.

You’ll come to understand why you’re incredibly perceptive naturally reading people, their body language, and microexpressions... and easily anticipating their needs.

And, you’ll learn how, as an HSP, you’re highly aware of all of the sights, sounds, scents, and even the unspoken things that are unfolding at any given time...

... all of which create a rich tapestry of the moment in your mind, which is likely translated into something meaningful that only you can create.

Ultimately, you’ll discover how easy it can be to thrive in the world by empowering the gifts of your innate sensitivity in a regulated and balanced way.

In joining this free online event with Julie, you’ll also be among the first to learn about her new 7-week live video course, in which you’ll delve more deeply into the powerful skills you can develop to help you flourish as a highly sensitive person in an insensitive world.

What People Are Saying About Julie Bjelland, LMFT...

“Julie brings a compassionate, joyful, brilliant, and clear presence to her work and empowers us...”

Within the first hour of meeting Julie, and comparing notes about such things as how Highly Sensitive People navigate stressful situations, I experienced deeper peace and increased self-acceptance through the recognition of my human operating system as a HSP. Julie illuminated a “spectrum of sensitivity.” This information helped me, as a practitioner and coach, to be more aware of how simple things like too much light in a room could overstimulate and distract a HS client in my practice. Julie brings a compassionate, joyful, brilliant, and clear presence to her work and empowers us HSP to capitalize on our gifts as we learn to more consciously care for ourselves and our clients.
