'MI training has given me a whole new level of confidence to explore the needs of my clients and help them to resolve their own ambivalence toward healthy living and physical activity. Lynne was incredibly encouraging and her insightful training has given me a whole new box of tools to assist me in delivering comfortable sessions with my clients in which I have been building much greater levels of rapport than ever before. With applications to all areas of my work and not just consultation, MI has allowed me to build strong bridges with the client and changed the way I practice as an instructor for the better. A highly valuable and inspiring course, one of the most influential I have attended by far.'
