Is your child ‘too much’? Too intense, too emotional, too sensitive?

PowerWood is the UK’s leading not-for-profit, community driven, social venture committed to raising awareness and supporting and improving the emotional wellbeing of families and individuals living with intensity, hyper-sensitivity and super-reactivity. Psychologists refer to these combined traits as ‘overexcitability’ (OE). These positive personality traits may bring above-average energy, pleasure, enjoyment, creativity, interests and empathy. OE also often comes with the deep urge to make the world a better place.

Children with overexcitabilities may be over-sensitive and can easily become over-whelmed and over-excited. They may be nervous or shy, or show strong emotional reactions. Their behaviour may be inappropriate or challenging and they are often misunderstood.

Through consultations, workshops, online training, social events and a week-long camp every summer, PowerWood aims to help support and connect with families living with OE. Simone is a qualified Parenting Consultant, Family and Life Coach and ‘ECHA Specialist in Gifted Education’ with over twenty years’ experience in advising and coaching parents, children and teenagers and families.

“I feel so grateful that I know about overexcitability now. The information I got from the workshop is going to be invaluable to me and my family.”
