Understanding Motivational Interviewing: A Compassionate Approach to Change

What is Motivational Interviewing (MI)? Motivational Interviewing is a collaborative and goal-oriented approach that aims to strengthen an individual's motivation and commitment to change. It's a conversational style that respects your autonomy, recognizes your ambivalence about change, and empowers you to explore and resolve uncertainties.

Key Processes of Motivational Interviewing

  1. Engaging: The process begins with building a strong and collaborative relationship between you and your therapist at Aligned Minds Counseling and Therapy in Edmonton. By creating a non-judgmental and supportive environment, we establish a foundation for open communication.

  2. Focusing: Together, we identify specific areas in your life where you feel motivated to make positive changes. Focusing helps us narrow down on meaningful goals and aspirations that resonate with you.

  3. Evoking: Motivational Interviewing is about drawing out your own motivations for change. Through reflective listening and empathetic exploration, we help you articulate your reasons for making positive shifts in your life.

  4. Planning: Once motivations are clarified, we work collaboratively to create a realistic and achievable plan for change. This plan aligns with your values and aspirations, setting you on a path towards a more fulfilling and balanced life.
