Join our tribe become a FreeBee member or a Friend member and support PowerWood in sharing cutting-edge research-based information, strategies and tools that are compassionately adaptable to our personal lifestyle choices and belief system with all neurodiverse families. Thank you.
From Isolation to Community
Many of us have felt isolated, inadequate, blamed or judged, for our own and/or our child’s behaviour.
We have been told that if we were more strict, or more lenient (can be very different), the current issues with ourselves and/or our children would be non-existent.
PowerWood is an enriching community that provides its members with a respectful, compassionate, supportive, enjoyable and safe environment.
PowerWood supports intense, sensitive, hyper-reactive more-able individuals, young adult, teens, tweens, children, parents, couples and families with research-driven theories, practical tools and strategies.
You are CRUCIAL
Your support through membership and your donations are crucial.
PowerWood is a not-for-profit community-driven organisation and without your support, donations and active contributions we would not be able to provide the same level of support and services to neurodiverse individuals and families facing challenges from all walks of life, nor continually adapt and improve our services so they fit the needs of our community best.
Feel welcome to join our journey by becoming a member. A Friend Membership shows your appreciation of PowerWood and allows PowerWood to support ALL neurodiverse individuals and families and to grow our Community in a sustainable way through a regular financial commitment.
If you would you like to show your appreciation of PowerWood and are financially challenged, a Free Membership is available too. This membership allows PowerWood to show through member numbers the importance of our work.
Joining our Journey
By joining you are supporting our PowerWood Community as well as validating PowerWood’s energy, efforts and determination, therefore, making it possible to continue to offer sustainable support to individuals and families from all walks of life, and to secure funding for future projects.
Thank YOU 🧡!

Multilevel Emotion Regulation Theory (MERT) is a holistic theory developed by Simone de Hoogh. The theory explains how neurodiverse (young) individuals and parents of neurodiverse children can develop emotional regulation skills and direct their energy towards self-chosen goals, and contribute to society.

OE (Overexcitability) is an element of a Developmental Theory – Theory of Positive Disintegration by Dabrowski – that is one of the underpinning theories of MERT (Multi-level Emotion Regulation Theory) developed by Simone de Hoogh. Overexcitability explains and allows us to look at ‘extreme’ behaviour as a valuable asset in our or our children’s life.
A HUGE thank YOU to the son and daughter of Ernest Hartmann who gave PowerWood permission to use and put the full academically approved questionnaire about the Boundary in the Mind on PowerWood’s website.
