 Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based, directive, client-centered counselling style for eliciting change by helping clients to explore and resolve their own ambivalence and build intrinsic motivation.

Motivational Interviewing is a non judgemental, empathetic and non-confrontational psychological approach that puts the client at the heart of the process.
