Sensory Tree™

We use the analogy of a tree to describe different sensory thresholds:

  • Roots are Sensory Avoiders
  • Trunks are Sensory Neutrals
  • Leaves are Sensory Seekers

We follow a bottom-up approach (showing you how to regulate the lower part of the brain) and provide you with simple, practical strategies based on your tree position.

General insights

Self-awareness is the first step in knowing how you respond to the environment.

  • Do you feel the seams of your socks?
  • How do you feel about escalators?
  • Do you like to have your hair cut?
  • Do you prefer to cycle or go to gym?
  • How often do you need “time out”?
  • Are you energised by people?

Sensory strategies for home

Home is where your heart is. So take care of both!

  • Should you live in a high-rise in the centre of town, or a quiet cul-de-sac?
  • How does your sensory style influence your parenting style?
  • Do you need quiet time to get away from the rush?
  • Do you prefer an outdoor camping trip or New York as a holiday destination?
  • Do you prefer a strong curry or a lamb stew?

Sensory strategies for work

How to work smarter and be more productive.

  • Do you take lunch away from your desk?
  • Can you perform optimally in an open plan office?
  • Does it matter where you sit in the office?
  • How does commuting to work affect you?
  • Do you prefer structure at work?
  • Or do you like flexibility?
  • Are you easily bothered by noise in your office?
