Coaching for Highly Sensitive, Gifted, & Creative People
I'm Boonie Sripom. I am a highly sensitive person and former gifted student who didn’t flourish in traditional education systems. I understand the need for freedoms to explore multiple paths of learning, as well as the importance of mentorship and guidance through parts of life. My background includes elementary school counseling (internship), college counseling, child development and art. Learning cannot be separated from the identity of a gifted individual. It is as necessary as breathing.
Feeling and expressing oneself intensely can also be difficult to separate from one’s way of being.
This may be seen as a negative trait, or something that makes it difficult to connect with others. Many sensitive or gifted people may feel like aliens or outliers within their communities, and ask, “Why am I different?” I can help sensitive and gifted people learn about their traits, see them as strengths, and build skills for effective communication, interpersonal connection and self-advocacy.
As a mental health-informed coach, I can help ensure a client receives appropriate services based on need. If and when therapy or additional support is necessary, I will have conversations that include referrals or recommendations for a higher level of care.
Coaching is a great alternative for those ready to act and embody change. I use typology systems like Myers Briggs and enneagram to explore personality through a strengths-based lens for growth. Developing a person’s creative process or creative identity may also be a part of the work we do together.
