                                                             OUR MENTORING PROGRAM

Discovering one’s intellectual giftedness late in life can be daunting even with guidance and understanding. The majority of newly discovered gifted adults unfortunately struggle with transition as their newly discovered intellectual prowess begins to beckon as their protective façade of normalcy begins to dissolve. I know, I spent the majority of my adult life in intellectual denial ignoring my true-self.

Our Gifted Adult Mentoring Program is designed for those adult members who have discovered the key (gifted awareness) to their own unique intellectual potential late in life and now struggle with transitioning.  Mentoring sessions are held privately via the phone, email or skype and remain confidential.    

When considering mentoring or counseling, consider your options carefully!  You may choose a mentoring or counseling service whose employees have merely studied the many complexities of Intellectual Giftedness, (a secondary field for most). Or you can choose a highly gifted adult mentor who’s been there and felt the apprehension and confusion that intellectual awareness usher in. I know it’s hard to see another path when you’ve been on one so long. Remember:"The hallmark of intellectual self-awareness, involves not just discovering who you are but understanding how other people perceive you" - Richard Brees
