Jan and Maree Stachel-WilliamsonnWow! Counselling & Coaching

Counselling/Therapy Services

They provide an environment which is supportive and respectful, solution-focused and non-judgemental. They enjoy supporting people in learning new ways of thinking about and dealing with problems while helping them connect with their inner strengths and skills. 

Building a strong and happy relationship is about understanding the patterns that cause distance and tension between you and your partner and learning how to consciously create more closeness. Couples' counselling with Jan will increase understanding, listening and caring in your relationship which on the one hand helps avoid separation or divorce, but also leads to mutual support and a brighter future together. 

Taking a playful and creative approach, they help children by connecting with the child in their world – using their strengths and ideas as well as teaching them new skills and ways of looking at the world. 

Offering a non-judgmental and a genuine listening ear is what they find our teenage clients appreciate the most about us. They help teens deal with the stresses that life is throwing at them as well as teach them how to turn their focus and life around to reach their goals and dreams.

The main approaches they use are: 

  • NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) 
  • EFT (Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy) 
  • Hypnotherapy & Mindfulness 
  • EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques aka Energy Psychology) 
  • Person centred and Solution focused Counselling 

All new clients can book a free 1/2 hour initial consultation. Sessions either take place in Riccarton, Christchurch or via Skype if you live outside of Christchurch. Funding for counselling can be accessed via Work and Income for people on a benefit or on a low wage.

With a wide range of therapeutic tools and techniques to draw from, sessions with nWow! can be tailored to suit your needs and preferred style.
