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.

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.
