Challenges and solutions beyond the norm


On this page, you will find helpful knowledge and practical advice on how to deal with giftedness in a solution-oriented way, and how highly gifted individuals can develop their potential.

The presented solutions are based on my practical experience as a member of a highly gifted family as well as my professional background as a coach, psychotherapist and mentor for the university network of highly gifted students (MHN).

Since many classical approaches often showed little effect, I have designed a special therapy and counselling concept for gifted people. This concept provides understanding of particular traits, which are likely to go hand in hand with high and maximum giftedness, and proposes realistic and applicable solutions.

The concepts for schools and kindergartens were extended and finalized in collaboration with two school teachers (Sönne Kienle and Katja Rischmann) and a kindergarten teacher (Stephanie Herzfeld).

I wish you lots of fun and success!
