Motivational Interviewing is a directive, but client-centered approach used to enable clients explore and overcome any ambivalence to change. It is a focused and goal-oriented technique, enabling clients become motivated to achieve a desired or required change.
Even when there are obvious reasons to change behaviour or life-style, individuals beliefs about their circumstances or ability to make the necessary changes can hold them back. Often people create barriers and attempt to justify reasons not to change, rather than go through what might be a painful process. Negative emotions such as fear, guilt or anger further block the change process. Motivational Interviewing gently challenges those negative emotions and beliefs, aiming to create a sense of empowerment, which encourages your clients to move from ambivalence to commitment.
