ABOUT OUR COACHES AND MENTORS

We have a group of nearly 25 coaches and mentors around the world, all trained in coaching, psychology and giftedness. We range from being moderately to profoundly gifted and many of us have a second-exceptionality or multi-exceptionalities. Having had to become experts at strategies for thriving as a neurodivergent person, we now teach, coach, mentor and guide our gifted peers who are embarking on the same process in their own lives. We come from varied educational, cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and range in age. Our coaching and mentoring specialties include gifted assessment, gifted career development and multipotentialite thriving, gifted self-awareness and self-development, philosophical and existential coaching, overcoming resistance and obstacles, managing high sensitivity, raising gifted kids, healthy relating, and more.

Many of us also teach workshops and courses & guide specialized groups, which you can learn about and sign up for on our courses page. Our coach Kelly Pryde has founded our partner project The Gifted Mindfulness Collective, and our coach Silver Huang has founded our partner project Intrepid Integrity. Our coaches Karin Eglinton and Merlin Györy are also very involved in InterGifted's leadership & initiative development. You can learn a bit more about our group of coaches on our FAQ page and read about our clients' experiences with us on our testimonials page.

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN COACHING, MENTORING & THERAPY

Many people wonder whether they need coaching, mentoring or therapy. This largely depends on whether you are in a healing phase or a constructive phase of your personal development journey. Therapy deals with the heavier emotions such as grief, anger, shame, and apathy and focuses on healing; coaching and mentoring are working in the realms of courage, acceptance, willingness and hope and focus on constructing. Often, gifted clients are working on various aspects of their development simultaneously (i.e. trauma healing and learning how to thrive with their giftedness), and many work with us in coaching or mentoring on the constructive aspects all the while working with a therapist on the healing aspects. You can learn more about this by reading our Gifted Therapy Search & Advocacy Page and our FAQs, as well as exploring the following articles:
