your gifted story
Welcome. This is a place to re-connect to your gifted narrative to find healing and meaning in your story.
By combining the transformative power of root cause therapy and gifted specific trauma informed coaching, I offer a unique and holistic healing and integration experience.
My coaching and therapy is designed to empower you to access the wisdom within your own gifted narrative and use it to create meaningful and lasting change in your life so you can thrive in your next chapter.
Your narrative in coaching
We humans are narrative creatures. Telling stories is part of how we make the world. We learn about and form our belief system through story. We discern how our inner value system correlates with the ideas of others and grow our own understanding by exploring how others see and understand the world through their lens.
The narratives we tell ourselves and the narratives imposed on us have a direct impact on the way we function, feel and relate. When we gain insight into how we conceptualise ourselves, we learn about the spaces where change and emergence can happen.
Coaching and Root Cause Therapy can help us find those spaces. To remember and unpack our gifted narrative is an empowering act -- we (re-)learn who we are and how we relate to the world and what we believe in. This allows us to step back into our own story, our core values and existential meaning of our becoming, in interplay with our psychological, social and spiritual selves.
While we become witness to our own narrative, we learn about the unfolding of our life and the questions it confronts us with. Once we have applied enough story medicine and move towards healing and growth, we are better able to see and respond to the callings our biography presents us with.
Eventually, the freed resources and uncovered values will guide the path to the creation of a new authentic-feeling storyline.
Owning our stories and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we'll ever do.
Explore your gifted story and apply your self-leadership skills to innovate by applying your unique way of seeing and experiencing the world. It’s all about how the strengths and challenges of your giftedness provide unique opportunities for growth, expression, meaning-making and connection with yourself and others.I offer gifted specific trauma informed coaching after an assessment or a combination of coaching (talk) and Root Cause Therapy (a therapeutic method to process trapped or trauma bound emotions) for those who wish to heal from gifted related trauma.
A good place to re-enter your gifted story is a qualitative giftedness assessment. This holistic full-picture look at your unique profile can help you unlock doors for legitimizing, accepting, and empowering yourself. Become the author of your next gifted chapter! Assessment-Integration Coaching or Root Cause Therapy might be a good way forward when it's time for a deeper dive to explore and apply the various aspects of your giftedness, excitabilities and neurodivergence to your personal and professional life-story.
Root Cause Therapy (RCT) is an emotion focused body-mind therapy that assists (gifted) people in getting to the root cause of their present reality. Our present reality is the actual story we tell ourselves about ourselves and is often unconsciously designed to support our attempts to get away from experiencing painful emotions or to at least make them manageable. But those attempts can become the basic cause of illness and disruption as they contain (and are naturally meant to cover) unresolved and unrecognised emotional underpinnings which are often rooted in a person’s childhood.

"The 2 hour assessment with Fabienne flew by. She is easy to talk to, warm, and she operates very intentional; from the way she phrases her questions to the reflections she shares. She is considerate and thoughtful.
The assessment is build up in such a way that you not only gain insight in your intelligence profile, but also the areas where you can continue to learn."
