Hettie Brittz is well-known for her Tree type analogy to explain the different personality types – to parents and even children.

We believe that every member of a family’s temperament plays a key role in relationships. Parents that understand the different temperament types can anticipate needs, emotions and challenges. They can pro-actively plan to make their home a space where everyone feels loved, respected, and safe enough to be themselves.

Hettie developed a few resources over the years to guide parents in determining their children’s tree type. Find below a summary of all the products and services available on this website.
