The Daimon Institute for the Highly Gifted provides educational consulting to support the overall development of Exceptionally and Profoundly gifted (EPG) people. Patients are all ages, and reside throughout the world.
We conduct Research and provide Keynotes, and Educational Presentations about the unique lived experience of the Exceptionally and Profoundly gifted children, adolescents, and adults, for mental health practitioners, educators, policymakers, researchers, parents, and the profoundly gifted themselves.
Patients from five continents receive support at the Daimon Institute. International patients may negotiate out-of-country meetings.
Online counselling (i.e. telehealth or video therapy). This is a form of counselling where appointments take place using technology and the internet. This occurs in real-time through the use of a computer, tablet, or phone, and the online video platform Doxy.me.
There are a range of needs that bring folks to the Daimon Institute. Some exceptionally bright people are seeking guidance on how to navigate a world unfit and unfamiliar with the needs of the very bright. These may be young people or adults. Some families are seeking help with the learning, emotional, and social needs of their exceptionally gifted offspring. Others seek support for challenging mental health concerns and these complex situations are looked at on a case-by-case basis.
We conduct Scientific research, collaborate with other leaders in the field of Gifted Education and Gifted Psychology and provide direction and leadership to those seeking to understand this exceptional populace.
