The Narrative Apothecary offers Giftedness Integration Coaching and Root Cause Therapy for individuals looking to own and grow their gifted story. All services provide a supportive environment that allows your story to emerge and be seen and heard. I am here to support you to move beyond being the hero of your story to become the author of your own unique, narrative. Whether you are at the beginning of discovering your gifted narrative or in need of an accomplished companion to write your next chapter.

Giftedness Assessments

A qualitative assessment takes a full-picture look at your profile including where you are on the giftedness scale, what shows as the main areas of intelligence and how they interact, any possible overexcitabilities and  how trauma, upbringing and cultural environments factor in.

Giftedness Integration Session

The integration therapy work combines gifted specific trauma informed coaching and Root Cause Therapy and is for those who want to take their healing and self-discovery journey further. This modality doesn't require that you took an assessment, but ideally you'd have some awareness around your giftedness. Around six sessions are recommended.

Root Cause Therapy

RCT helps clients to enquire about what stories they tell themselves unconsciously, to which (self-)beliefs these stories are connected, and where the stories originated. The process then guides clients to explore the possibility of letting these stories and beliefs go, or at least letting go of the emotional hold that these stories have on them.

Post Assessment Integration

Post Assessment Integration Sessions are about helping you learn more about giftedness in general and befriending your particular giftedness profile, its unique strengths and how to work with challenges it might offer. During our session we determine next best steps and create a map of tailor-made resources. I recommend 1-3 sessions.

Orienting Sessions

Don't know yet which coaching might benefit you most, whether gifted-specific therapy may be needed instead or what to expect from a qualitative giftedness assessment? In an orienting session we'll map out where you are in your journey and what the next best steps might look like.

Re-Animating the Sensing Instinct

In this new experiential workshop, we will be drawing on Donna Williams’ work on autism and the sensing instinct, where the autistic system of sensing and interpretation differs from that of the dominant culture’s process of making sense of the world. Participants will have the opportunity to both explore re-animating their sensing instinct and gaining deeper clarity on their own gifted autistic story.

It took some time and courage for me to invest in my self-understanding with a giftedness assessment, but I knew I needed a solid foundation from which to build in order to move my life forward. My assessment with Fabienne gave me everything I needed to begin filling the very important gaps and helped me answer many of the lingering questions books and research articles couldn’t. Even after discovering my giftedness three years ago, I knew the knowledge of giftedness alone couldn’t account for the suffering and isolation I had endured throughout my life. Being given a fuller, more complete picture of how I experience that world has alleviated a profound amount of guilt and shame, as well as armed me with the ability to be a stronger self-advocate and design my life around my multi-exceptional needs. I am so deeply grateful.
