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 would be more strict, or if we would be more lenient (can be very extremely different), the current issues with ourselves and/or our children would be non-existent.

Enriching Community

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.

Emotion Regulation

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.

*Overexcitability Test

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. 

Find out if you or your child has OE (OverExcitability) as well
