The Motivational Interviewing approach is a client-centred, guiding communication style. It is applicable to a variety of professions and is currently widely used in the following sectors:

  • Health
  • Social services
  • Education
  • Voluntary sector support services 
  • Probation and prison services
  • Youth work and young people services


The most effective way to learn the Motivational Interviewing approach is through a three-day workshop. This consists of two consecutive training days with an opportunity to embed skills learnt into practice, prior to the consolidation final day. Follow-up coaching sessions, focused supervision and booster training can improve skills development.


Introductory presentations and shorter workshops can be arranged.
