“Working with Jen has been nothing short of a miracle for me. Over the course of a few months I’ve been able to transform patterns of hardship and suffering that I’d assumed were going to be part of my life forever. She has helped me untangle these patterns and get at what’s most important to me, which is my ability to create meaningful work and to have relationships that support me in doing so. Working with her, I feel seen, heard, empowered and understood. A powerful ally to have at your side!”
“What can I say about Jennifer’s coaching work? I can’t even begin to find the words.
As a profoundly gifted adult, I have found other consultants, counsellors and psychologists to be a poor fit for my rapidly evolving and fractally intense needs. Therefore, even though I actively sought mentoring for years, I never, ever, felt genuinely helped by any of the professionals I’d spoken to. I was always left sad and disappointed and just made do with what little I got. Most of the time, I would overwhelm them with the ways and means I’d already researched, applied and tackled. Many were the times I would prepare extensively for a session, going in with all my notes, hoping to tell them, “Well, here’s what I’ve done, so I was wondering if you have anything further to suggest?” and to receive a response along the lines of, “Oh okay, well if those haven’t worked as well as you desired, here’s what more you can do.” No. In fact, every time it’s either a blank face, an overwhelmed face, a bored face, or even a threatened face, and then complete change of subject or a reversion to patent basics, again and again. It was mutually frustrating and resource depleting.
With Jennifer, however, I realised that what I needed and craved all these decades was challenge. I needed a coach who could challenge me to push my comfort zones beyond what I was capable of on my own, without a professionally neutral third-party perspective. I needed a coach who was not only as driven as I am myself to constantly evolve, self-actualise and even self-transcend, but who also approaches those goals as a profoundly gifted person would. This made such a difference to my sense of self, identity and worth, when I realised that I wasn’t wrong all these years, I was simply working with the wrong people out of sheer ignorance.
Gifted people need gifted coaches. There is no two ways about it. We need a gifted coach who can not only match our speed, intensity and diversity but who is also trained and personally experienced with all the skills and toolsets required to achieve what we desire.
Jennifer is an extremely wise, compassionate and skillful coach who not only has the professional training and capacity but also a unique kindness and genuine curiosity that allows her to connect with her gifted clients as fellow human beings, and that is a quality is so rare to find in coaches and mentors these days. My sessions with Jennifer always leave me feeling seen and heard, appreciated and supported and most importantly of all, spiritually, psychologically and practically empowered to take the next right small step toward creating the life I desire and deserve as who I am.”
“Jen was the right light at the right time for me. I had spent a good portion of my early adult life trying to figure myself out and how I fit into the world, and while I had made significant progress, there were missing pieces – the gifted pieces – that were keeping me stuck. Jen helped me fill in those missing pieces and ‘unlock the whole’ so that I could move forward. Without her coaching and guidance, there were aspects of myself I don’t think I would have ever embraced, let alone even recognized. Jen is an exceptional coach and human being, and should you ever have the opportunity to work with her, grab it with arms wide open!”
“Working with Jen first in group sessions, then in individual sessions for the last three years has really helped me to continue growing as a young adult. She has coached me on how to deal with my career in general, such as communicating difficult decisions to my superior, making tough career decisions by following my passion, managing impostor syndrome, finding my personal rhythm at work and balancing it with family life. Overall, I’ve learned how to manage my time so that I have become more efficient based on my personal needs, learning how to set my boundaries towards others and gain the full authority over my life. Jen’s coaching has made a big difference in my personal development these last three years and I’d strongly recommend her coaching sessions to anyone who is interested in self- and career- development.”
“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 is a phenomenal mentor for aspiring gifted coaches. Working with her has been a true privilege. Not only does she bring a thorough understanding of giftedness and years of experience in coaching gifted people to the sessions, she also empowers you to develop your unique style in all aspects of coaching. She supported me in becoming my most courageous and authentic self in my coaching practice. Whenever I was ready to go to the next level, she was right there, ready for the next leg towards mastery, believing in me without reservation. Jen has a distinctive gift to bring out the best coach in you – her insights, teachings and approaches have been an invaluable asset in this endeavour.”
