Dr. Ellie Bolgar has 18-years experience practicing psychology in South Surrey/White Rock and Fort Langley. She provides Psychotherapy to Families and Couples, Life Coaching, and Clinical Supervision.
Dr. Bolgar is trained in a variety of approaches (Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Existential, Psychodynamic, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Hypnosis Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, and Neurofeedback).
Dr. Bolgar utilizes an attachment focused psychology that is more than simply using techniques. It is an an understanding of a way people perceive life, correcting biases, repairing ruptures, and forming profound connections with the self and others, which installs a greater sense of security.
In addition to traditional therapy Dr. Bolgar uses Neurofeedback to help the brain to reach the most optimal balance. Neurofeedback, also called EEG Biofeedback is non-invasive drugless method for teaching the brain to function in a more balanced and healthier way. A simple and pleasant learning modality that can help shift the way the brain produces and distributes electrical energy.
Dynamical Neurofeedback essentially leverages the brain’s preference for efficiency, enabling it to function at its best. It works directly with the central nervous system. It is a drug-free approach to feeling and functioning better. It is also successfully used for adults and children with severe impairments.
Neurofeedback has shown great success as an addition to psychotherapy. It helped improve the lives of children with severe neuro-biological issues, communication, social challenges and general difficulties in school. It is also an effective treatment for depression, anxiety, emotional dysregulation, sleep disorders, lack of focus, ADHD, Autism and stress related illnesses. How the brain functions affect everything in the body and present as physical symptoms such as high blood pressure, pain disorders, chronic pain, muscle tension migraines. Neurofeedback calms the brain, it helps people sleep better, reduce their pain, recover faster and more fully than doctors sometimes expect.
Dr. Bolgar accepts self-referrals and referrals from Physicians, Employee Assistance Programs, Child Protection services, Mental Health, and Victim Services. She offers personal development workshops and stress management. She has done excessive research on attachment studies, personality development and the impact of stress on individual’s mental, emotional and physical health.
Dr. Bolgar researched how attachment experiences impact individual’s perception of stressors in later life. She wrote “Stress-less more balanced” -a manual that is used in group therapy. She was invited to present her research “Stress is a matter of perception” at the 4th World Congress of Positive Psychology in Florida 2015. This research is published and available on the Positive Psychology website. Dr. Bolgar initiated several projects with the Surrey and White Rock Schools and non-profit organizations for children, teens and their parents dealing with anxiety and depression. She submitted many successful grants and received generous funding from the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation, Soroptimist, United Way, and Rotary Club for stress management and personal development.
Dr. Bolgar believes that people have the natural ability to heal under the right circumstances.
