FAQ's - nWow! Counselling & Coaching
NLP, EFT, Hypnotherapy, counselling and coaching – I don’t know what I need or what would help me. How do I work this out?
Sometimes people come to us wanting a specific approach eg. NLP for social phobias, hypnotherapy for weight loss, EFT for pain reduction. Most of the time however, people just know they have an issue they want to solve. We find out your goals and needs in the free 1/2 hour session and can discuss any preferences then. We mix and match the tools according to the person, their strengths, needs and goals.
How can I find out if I can get Winz funding for counselling?
If you are on a benefit or have a low income, then you may be eligible for funding for your counselling with us. Talk to your doctor to find out. He/she will have to certify that counselling is necessary. An application form (your doctor will have these) is filled out by you, your doctor and finally us. We can fill in our part of the form in the free 1/2 hour introductory session.
How many sessions will I need and how often?
Generally our clients say they have started to make significant changes already after a few sessions. That said, it all depends on how simple or complex your issues are and how many things you wish to change. If you have a number of issues you want to work on, then weekly sessions are ideal to keep the ball rolling.
Who will I be working with?
For individual sessions, it’s often a case of which one of us answers your call or email. If you have a preference then let us know so you can have your free 1/2 hour introductory session with the person you want to work with.
If however, you are contacting us for couples counselling, then you will be working with Jan.
What does ‘nWow’ mean and how is it pronounced?
To pronounce nWow, simply say the letter ‘n’ and then say WOW! When we started out, we thought about what we represent and how we work. We noticed that people often think that seeing a counsellor or coach will be a very serious experience. In contrast, our style is very solution-focused and uplifting. We help people start really enjoying life again and get the ‘Zing’; the WOW back – in short we wanted to help people ‘put the WOW back into now’.
Do you do phone or Skype consultations?
Yes, you can have sessions via phone or Skype if you live out of town or in a different country. We do not offer hypnotherapy sessions this way. However for regular counselling, coaching, NLP or EFT this is fine. When possible, we prefer to have at least the initial consultation in person.
You’re German right? Can you do counselling sessions in German?
Jan is a native speaker and can conduct sessions in German if you wish. Maree studied German and is fluent enough that sessions can be a mix of German and English (she’s better at understanding than speaking though).
What about other cultures?
We have experience working with many different cultures and are happy to work with anyone for whom English is a second language.
We are also happy to help you with any questions you may have about what we do or if you would like to have a chat with us to find out how you can benefit from working with us.
