“I don’t get scared easily, but before my first session with Jennifer I was scared – scared that leaving my job to launch my “side” business full time would be “boring” because I would be doing the same thing day after day. In that first hour with Jennifer, she challenged me to look at the problem differently and made me realize that I was a lot more suited to working in “bursts”, implementing project after project rather than having a daily routine. She changed my whole perspective that day, and after one year of working with her I can tell you it was not just a lucky shot.”

WHAT IS GIFTEDNESS?
Giftedness is a mind construction – a way we take in the world, perceive and organize it. That construction is statistically uncommon, in terms of speed, complexity and intensity, and many gifted people don’t recognize they are gifted because they think everyone else is like them. The way a gifted person expresses their giftedness depends on many factors, such as type (intellectual only, or intellectual plus emotional, creative, and so on), level (mild, moderate, high, exceptional or profound), presence of other challenges (such as learning disabilities or neurological abnormalities), and the amount of support, recognition, appreciation and mirroring they’ve had in their lives. In other words, giftedness does not always look the same and is not a one-size-fits-all concept. Each gifted person’s mind comes with its own unique challenges and opportunities, and that’s what we help our gifted clients to embrace and constructively co-create with in their lives!
ABOUT OUR WORK
“Jen’s coaching really helped me getting my focus back! Her insights have given me momentum. I think about the big picture and how I could utilize my story to help others. She is a very warm and caring person and at the same time she really hits the nail on the head when it comes to finding the missing pieces. I am working with horses and what is true with them, is true for us: it’s the small things that bring about monster changes. Jen also never pushes you into something, nor does she work off a prepared list. She is VERY intuitive and sharp and I felt as if she knew what I thought before I knew it. I am not easy to be excited, nor would I ever recommend someone unless I was 100% convinced that they were good. I thank Jen for being there for me and helping me getting my focus back. I would not hesitate one second to contact her again if I felt lost. Jen, just wanted to say THANK YOU for your direction and your understanding! Keep up the good work and I would love to see your potential to empower more people by being their mentor.”
“I learned more in three Skype sessions with Jen from halfway across the globe than I did in years of sitting in therapy. You just handed me the information that I needed (no, that I craved) and I felt like a dying tree being revived by a rainstorm. Like manna from heaven. Clarity crystallizing from out of the fog. For that, I will be forever grateful!”
Jen’s Gifted Psychology 101 course has been a double journey. I enrolled to gain professional knowledge and month after month I felt more comfortable and ready to offer support to gifted clients. Jennifer has given me an organised path to follow which has improved my competence and also helped to make order in the cluster of information I previously gained self-studying. The unexpected surprise has been the personal journey. As the weeks went by I noticed how the new learning and the homework tasks were positively affecting my self-affirmation journey.

I worked with Jen in coaching for a while before daring to ask for a giftedness level assessment. I was really scared because I don’t want to feel like I’m “better” than anyone, but in coaching I was realizing that I was avoiding understanding myself by avoiding knowing about my gifted profile. So, we scheduled an assessment session, and it was life-changing. I realized that I am exceptionally gifted and highly empathic, and as a woman, sometimes those aspects of myself have worked in competition with each other. I want to be smart and move ahead at my speed, but I want to care for everyone and never make others suffer. Jen has helped me realize that I have a right and a real need to express my exceptionally gifted self, but that with self-awareness, I can also learn to do so in ways that does not hurt others. This is a huge revelation, and Jen and I are continuing to work on it in our coaching sessions. It’s hard to believe that, after 20 years of therapy, my life could change so much in just a half-year of knowing Jen! Thank you Jen.
Jen’s time management course for gifted people goes way beyond simple time management techniques. It allows profound self-reflection and group sharing on the aspects of ourselves and our lives which make it challenging to manage our professional and personal responsibilities. Included are identifying our needs, rhythms, personality style, letting go, and going to the essential. It has been the best self-development course I’ve taken – one from which I have seen a clear “before” and “after” in my life!
“Hiring a personal coach was something I was very hesitant about doing. I did not have confidence that whoever I chose would be able to really understand me as a person yet a businessman. In no time my fears were put at ease. Jennifer had amazing insight into me. Often times in the past I have felt alone, isolated and a bit of an outcast. After a few sessions I began to understand myself better and not feel at all like an outcast. I realized there were many people out there just like me. People with the same fears and worries who just needed the tools to handle them properly and put them in the proper perspective. That alone alleviated quite a bit of stress. But just as important was the caring that Jennifer showed. This was something I was not anticipating. Oftentimes she will email me to say she was thinking of me and wanted to know how I was doing. Whenever I have a question I can email her and know I’ll get a quick response and not be ‘on the clock’ for doing so. In this day and age where it seems so many people are just about the money, Jennifer is not. She TRULY cares.”
