Yes, he's been like this since he was a toddler. I have two older children who are not like this at all. And nothing traumatic ever happened to him. He was with me constantly - he never went to daycare or had a babysitter who could have traumatized him.
I started our thanking you all individually, but I don't want to clutter the list so just know I am reading all of your suggestions and I am very grateful to everyone who has taken the time to offer them.

You would need to find one that is qualified to work with children though. Also homeopathy has worked wonders with him over the years. He does have OCD though (not diagnosed), but we have come round to the idea that the things he does are really not harmful, or particularly obvious, so we just accept them. If your son hasn't always been like this, is there something else going on in his life? School is a huge cause of anxiety for children who are very sensitive and intuitive. My sound found school very hard until I took him out to home educate him. I'm not suggesting you do that, but it might be worth investigating ways to make school a little easier for your son.
