Support sessions are to encourage you to learn more about where your or your children’s behaviour stem from and gives you information, tools and strategies to how to connect, guide and direct the energy associated with overexcitability positively towards fulfilling your potential and achieving your self chosen aims in life.
Support Sessions can also be helpful if you are going through a transitional time e.g. divorce, lost of a loved one, life changing or threathening health issues, change of career, starting home-education, dealing with (sexual) abuse, difficult decisions or if you want to have support with developing parenting strategies that are goal focused etc.
Sharing an intense transitional time within a relationship of mutual respect and commitment strengthens and helps you move positively forward while finding value and meaning along the journey.
Support Sessions are delivered by Simone de Hoogh*, the founder of PowerWood.

Parents and Carers
Would you like to gain understanding and have practical tools and strategies, adepted to your personal parenting style and lifestyle choices, to communicate effectively and positively with an overexcitable and/or high-able child or teenager that is overwhelmed by emotions or is experiencing an emotional overload or blockage. Would you like to find out how to guide your children so they are able to develop independent skills to understand and deal constructively with their own strong feelings and needs.
(Young) Adults and Couples
Would you like to learn more about how overexcitabillity influences your personality and the dynamics in your relationship. Would you like to find out how you can support yourself when experiencing overwhelming emotions or feel stuck. Would you like to learn how to deal constructively with the anxiety, frustration, self-doubt, maybe even self-loathing. Or are you experiencing behaviours associated with psychological disorders e.g. depression, anxiety etc. Would you like to find out how you can use this intensity to fulfil your own personal potential and your self chosen goals.
Children,’Tweens’ and Teenagers
Would you like to find out why you react so strongly, even feel overwhelmed by so much around you compared with your peers, that you can deeply enjoy the connection with your pet, or intensely worry about so many things, from how people will react to what you have said, if homeless people will survive in winter, if the world and humans will get extinct due to the current climate change etc. Would you like to get tools and strategies that help you to get a handle on your own reactions and feel more in charge of how you experience the world?
When I first signed up for the 3 sessions, I felt a little frivolous in spending the money. To be honest, I thought I knew quite a lot about this subject already. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I only knew an overview and had no understanding of the way the oe’s [Overexcitabilities] interact and frame your life. The cost of the sessions has been, without any doubt, the best spent money of my life to date. It has been transformational. Uncomfortable lessons sometimes, but always worthwhile. And I know without a shadow of doubt that I could not have got to this point of understanding myself and my interactions, particularly with my children, without your help.Mother of a 13 and 10 year old daughter
