motivational interviewing

Supporting behaviour change in others.

Motivational Interviewing is a communication style designed to help people to make positive changes in their life.

It helps people to make changes in situations where they find it hard to buy into solutions either because they don’t want to change, cannot see the need to change or do not feel able to change. 

It brings together the very different disciplines of listening and guiding, encouraging people to find and make choices which they feel able to take into action.
