Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Therapy, also known as Motivational Interviewing, is like a personal cheerleader to help you explore and boost your motivation for positive change. Let’s break it down. 

  1. Collaborative Conversation: It’s a partnership between you and the therapist. Instead of being told what to do, you’re encouraged to express your thoughts and desires. The therapist listens actively and guides the conversation to uncover your own motivations. 
  2. Exploration of Ambivalence: if you’re feeling stuck on ambivalent about change, that’s completely normal. Motivational therapy helps you explore and resolve any conflicting feelings about making positive changes in your life. 
  3. Identifying Goals and Values: Together, you and the therapist work on identifying your goals and values. What really matters to you? What positive changes align with you aspirations? It’s about connecting with what truly motivates and inspires you.
  4. Strengthening Commitment: The therapist helps you strengthen your commitment to change by highlighting the benefits and exploring the potential challenges. It’s like shining a spotlight on the positive outcomes to reinforce your motivation. 

It’s a supportive and non-judgmental process designed to tap into your own motivations for change. Motivational Therapy respects where you are in your journey. Gently nudging you towards positive transformations that align with your values and aspirations.
