ABOUT MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is as a therapeutic technique helpful for making change in any area of your life. It’s especially supportive when you’re experiencing a level of ambivalence about the change you’re hoping to experience. For example, maybe there’s a habit or a relationship where part of you wants to make a change but another part of you doesn’t. Maybe you want to take steps to improve an area of your life but aren’t quite sure where to start. At its heart, MI helps you work with ambivalence and explore elements of commitment and motivation.

MI is a collaborative process between the therapist and client. We explore stages of change and together create active, concrete steps you can take to work toward your desired goal. Ambivalence, often a natural part of change and growth, is explored with compassion and non- judgement. As shifts occur, MI also aids in maintenance. Within the process, you may begin to trust your own personal strengths and inner motivation, deepening self-confidence, self-trust and self-compassion.

Motivational interviewing is designed to strengthen personal motivation for and commitment to a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person’s own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion.
