Our Aims and Values
Raise awareness of neurological diversity as a positive force for change in society.
PowerWood supports families with non neuro-typical and overexcitable (OE) individuals leading to more harmonious family life, where people are able to fulfil their passions and dreams.
For those families, we aim to
Provide a safe, non judgemental space to connect, learn and grow together.
Give parents the information, tools and strategies to be able to build their energy reserve, resilience and willpower, and communicate in an effective and caring manner.
Increase access to the natural world and sustainable living.
Our core values
Parents are the experts on ourselves, our children and our family situation.
We celebrate, cherish and embrace our neurodiversity as natural variation.
We offer understanding, compassion and support.
We model being true to ourselves, authentically and happily unique.
We make informed decisions, drawing on a wide range of theories, models and clinical experience, adapted to personal circumstances,belief systems, and lifestyle choices of each client.
Through taking responsibility for nature, we learn to take responsibility for ourselves and the people we love
