The normal stuff of life, magnified by seriousness and indecision, is the natural domain for motivational interviewing.
I offer individuals an opportunity to discuss troubling and unresolved dilemmas, using MI as the conversational framework. Sessions have been held at venues of the individual’s choice, including cafes, museums and parks, by phone or online media – whichever is most convenient.
MI was developed to help us disentangle the knots that hold us fast. Typical predicaments have included: struggles to achieve a healthier lifestyle, concerns about drinking, difficulties at work, collapsing relationships, ‘unmanageable’ teenagers, and readjusting to life’s present-day challenges.
