Boaz Gilboa has a Masters 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
Trauma and phobia relief based on the works of Bandler & Grinder
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.
