through Motivational Interviewing
What is Motivational Interviewing?
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a person centered, guiding method of communication to elicit and strengthen a person’s own motivation for change. Unlike the traditional approaches of persuasion, advice giving and education, MI supports sustainable change by eliciting and emphasizing a person’s own values and desires for change.

How Does Motivational interviewing work?
MI is about evoking what is already present in a person; not attempting to instill what is missing or attempting to “fix” another person.
Through the foundational spirit and the use of core skills, the MI practitioner addresses the common problem of ambivalence about change and elicits a person’s own motivation to move forward.
MI is an evidence-based practice with over 200 clinical trials demonstrating its effectiveness across a variety of populations, target behaviors and medical conditions.
