Motivational Interviewing: Have you noticed that when someone pushes you to do something, that you can resist them, not because you don’t want to do what is asked, or make that change, but because you feel pushed? Motivational Interviewing is an evidence-based counselling strategy that helps you to identify your goals, increase your motivation and ready you to make changes, without feeling pushed or coerced.  It can be really helpful assisting people who need to change their health behaviours (e.g. improving their lifestyle, beating addictions). However it is also useful for engaging people in addressing mental health problems where they feel that they are being pushed into treatment.
