The Gifted Minds team is unique in that it is made up of individuals whose qualifications include Masters Degrees and PhDs in Psychology or Education, often with specialisation in gifted education.

The Gifted Minds team are not clinical psychologists and do not diagnose disorders or learning difficulties, referring on when necessary.

We feel our strength is in helping identify areas of ability while deepening understanding of the impact of intensity.



         Welcome to Gifted Minds  


The Gifted Minds team is different.

Our aim is to assess and identify your child’s profile of intellectual strengths and weaknesses using an IQ test, to help you better understand and cater for specific needs at home and in school.

We also look beyond the IQ scores and try to help you determine how personal intensities and sensitivities impact in the classroom.

We look for creativity in responses and are skilled at finding creative-divergent children whose gifts may be ‘invisible’ in the classroom. We have learned to assess acutely, looking for nuances, while staying within protocol. We change our pace based on the child’s individual need to reflect, or to go faster.


These are skills that Fiona has acquired over almost twenty years of studying about and getting to know these children. And that is how we are different. We know your children, we understand them and we love working with them.




“The principle goal of education is to create men who are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done – men who are creative, inventive and discoverers.”
