About Boaz Gilboa
Boaz Gilboa has a Master’s in Neuro Linguistic Programing & Counselling. He is a fully insured counselling practitioner.
Above all, Boaz is very effective at creating positive change for his clients. He has a talent for asking the big questions in a truly caring, compassionate, and accepting way.
Boaz has taken further extensive study in EMDR. His goal is to give back to the world what was so freely given to him… The ability to move past painful experiences that can impact our lives.
Boaz’ revolutionary idea, is that EMDR can be so simple that almost anyone can now do it for themselves, for their friends, and even for their family. Have a go, and if you want extra help, then reach out. Just call or book online.
There are many more evidence-based techniques that Boaz uses, and these include:
Internal Family Systems or IFS, based on the work of Dr. Richard Schwartz
The bottom line is that Boaz wants you to move past your emotional pain and difficulties more easily, and more quickly than you ever imagined possible.
Headway is very different to any other form of counselling that you have experienced.
Firstly, we believe that good counselling is easy. It is so easy, that you can do most of it yourself for FREE if you want to… Just use the tools that we offer you here.
What makes HeadWay’s treatments so effective?
HeadWay uses the method of Express Counselling.
Express as in you get great results fast, from your very first session.
Express as in your follow up sessions are just 30mins. That means less time out of your day, AND more cost effective that other therapies.
Express as in you do not need to be great at expressing your feelings to get great results. This process works even if you do not want to talk much.
How does Express Counselling work so quickly?
Most forms of therapy focus on talking about your difficult feelings and behaviors. You are then expected to make a big effort to change. That does not often work particularly well.
It’s like telling you not to respond a certain way when you are triggered.
What is EMDR?
EMDR is the ONLY form of therapy shown to be effective for PTSD, Trauma, Hidden Triggers.
Most practitioners pretend that EMDR is complicated and difficult treatment to do well. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is so simple that teenagers can do it for themselves or for each other.
EMDR does two amazing things:
It strengthens and activates your Vagus Nerve. This helps you to self-soothe during challenging situations such as worries, triggers, or fears.
It is the OPPOSITE of the FIGHT & FLIGHT nervous system. Imagine not having to run or react to everyday situations. Amazing, right?
It makes parts of your brain talk to each other, that would not normally talk. This is what happens when you are dreaming. It is a very important part of processing our lives.
When you are dreaming your eyes move from side to side. This is called R.E.M. sleep. EMDR puts you in a mild R.E.M. state while you are awake. Clever, isn’t it?
What is the "magic" of EMDR?
What is IFS?
IFS stands for Internal Family Systems. It is a fairly new form of therapy, but the results already seem outstanding.
The idea goes like this:
Our personality is made up of hundreds of different parts. These parts do not necessarily like each other, agree with each other, or even know about each other.
There are two main types of parts. These are known as Managers and Exiles.
Exiles are parts of us that got shut away when we were younger. They were shut away because their lives were too hurtful, too scary, or they were just not accepted by the people around them.
Managers are there to protect those exiled parts from any further harm. They might sometimes seem to do crazy things BUT THEY ALWAYS HAVE A GOOD INTENTION.
What if you could "rescue" your exiled parts, and let the managers retire from their crazy, hectic jobs?
That is the magic of IFS. Once your managers have eased up, and your exiles feel safe again, then you just don’t have a trigger anymore… It’s gone.
Can you do IFS on your own?
You can do IFS on your own, but it is best to learn how to do it first. Once you know how, there are some great FREE guided IFS session that you can do.
