Giftedness Integration Work and Gifted Coaching are exploratory and creative methods that support you, as a gifted or multi-exceptional adult, to reclaim and rebuild a life-path based on the innate wisdom of your own unique gifted mind. We are an international organization offering online gifted integration & coaching sessions throughout the world, which you can learn about below. For gifted therapy, we refer to gifted therapists outside of our organization; you can learn about our therapy search service on our gifted therapy page.

 

GIFTED SELF-DEVELOPMENT ORIENTING SESSIONS

To get started with gifted intergration and coaching work, we often recommend orienting sessions, which are one-time (or several) online consultation sessions aimed at getting an overview of your situation and orienting you toward the most fitting direction and resources for you on your giftedness integration / personal development and/or healing journey. These are not coaching sessions, but rather serve to orient you to the gifted-specific support world, looking at the big picture of your situation and offering recommendations for the best next steps for your self-discovery / self-development journey. These sessions take place on zoom.us, typically last 1 to 1.5 hours, and cost 170 CHF per hour.

Orienting sessions can be held with the coaches pictured below. You can learn about each of them by clicking on their names, and contact them directly to schedule. Sessions are available in English & German. If you are unsure with whom you'd like to meet, email us at support@intergifted.com to share some basic background information yourself about what you'd like support with, and we will match you to the best-fitting orienting coach.

 

GIFTEDNESS INTEGRATION WORK

Giftedness Integration Work is designed for gifted adults who have just (re)discovered their giftedness or who feel ready to look deeper into the role their giftedness plays in their lives, and more consciously embrace the wisdom of their unique cognition. This work includes a series of online sessions to explore, get to know, and apply the various aspects of your giftedness and your extended cognitive profile (such as specific areas of intelligence or multi-exceptionalities) to your life. This work is particularly fruitful following the completion of a giftedness assessment, though a certain amount can be done without an assessment.

For Giftedness Integration Work, it is important that clients be in a stable emotional situation and are ready to embrace and walk their unique path with the support of a coach. For clients who are in crisis or other emotional upheaval, we recommend starting with a therapy search.

The coaches pictured below are available for online Giftedness Integration Work sessions, each focusing on a particular aspect of integration in their work. Session cost depends on the coaches' location and level of experience, ranging from 130 CAD to 160 euros. You can click on our coaches' names to learn more and get in touch to schedule an appointment:

GIFTED COACHING

Gifted coaching is designed to support specific goals in your life. It is for gifted adults who are in a stable emotional state and situation, but need the creative collaboration of a gifted & gifted-knowledgeable coach for important life and career decisions, planning, personal or professional project building, navigating academia or family life, or pursuing another specific goal. For clients who are in crisis or other emotional upheaval, we recommend starting with a therapy search.

Coaching can be short-term or long-term, depending on your needs for support. All of the coaches pictured above (for orienting and giftedness integration work) are also available for gifted coaching. Additionally, we have an extended network of gifted coaches who offer gifted-specific coaching on additional themes, such as:

  • creative writing coaching
  • philosophical coaching
  • positive disintegration coaching
  • executive functioning skills coaching
  • mentoring for navigating academia
  • gifted parenting coaching

Cost for coaching sessions depends on the coaches' location and level of experience, and ranges from 130 CAD to 160 euros per hour. All sessions take place on zoom.us, and we offer coaching in the following languages: English, French, German, Dutch, Swedish.

EVALUATING READINESS

How can you know if you're ready for working with us?

  • Our giftedness integration and coaching work are designed for adults who are ready and excited to explore their giftedness and are currently able to actively apply what they learn in their personal development process. This work takes place in the realms of courage, acceptance, willingness and hope, and focuses on building a life based on one's core values and authentic needs and interests.
  • Given the purpose, format and ethical constraints of our work, it is important for our clients to be in a stable and non-rushed emotional and psychological state, and to be comfortable working with the notion of giftedness following the giftedness model we use. As a reference, this work is designed for clients who find themselves in the realm of 61-100 on the Global Assessment of Functioning Scale.
  • We are not able to provide crisis support, so if you’re going through a period of crisis, extreme emotional or existential pain or turmoil, or unmanageable fear, anger, grief, shame or apathy, we recommend reaching out to a local, qualified professional for support.
  • If you are not in crisis, but are in need of healing and support in a therapeutic relationship, you may be a good fit for our InterGifted body trauma therapist Esther Goldinger, or for a gifted-specific therapy recommendation via our Therapy Search Service.
  • Often, gifted and multi-exceptional clients are working on various aspects of their development simultaneously (i.e. trauma healing and learning how to thrive with their giftedness), and some work with us in giftedness integration and coaching on the constructive aspects of their development, all the while simultaneously getting support from a therapist on the healing aspects of their development.
  • You can learn more about the differences between coaching and therapy by reading our Gifted Therapy Page, our FAQs, and the following articles: Philosophical Coaching for Gifted People, by Miriam van der Valk; and Coaching vs. Therapy - A Perspective, by Vicki Hart, John Blattner & Staci Leipsic.
  • If you are still unsure which method would work best for you at this time, or how to skillfully combine the approaches, we recommend scheduling an orienting session in which we'll help you clarify the best way forward, given your current needs and goals.
