My orientation to counseling, psychotherapy and hypnotherapy is essentially a strengths perspective with a solution focus. The strengths perspective acknowledges all the strengths, resources and instinctual imperatives within an individual that have helped the individual get to the present moment.The strengths perspective helps me scan for the resources needed to resolve or modfy the treatment concern.
The influences that guide my work have been derived from studies, experience or training in: systems theory, Jungian therapy, cognitive therapy, object relations theory, Ericksonian hypnotherapy, hypnosis, breath work, narrative therapy, ego-state therapy, solution focused therapy, music therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and more.
In addition to direct clinical work with individuals, couples and families, Bart offers hypnotherapy training to qualified professionals. Bart's articles have been published in The American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis.
