P Grad Cert Health Sciences, BA soc sci, Member of Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers.
I have been a practitioner of Motivational Interviewing (MI) for the past 17 years and trainer of trainers for the past 6 years. I’ve trained both nationally and internationally. A significant part of my training involves training health professionals in various organisations in health, employment and justice settings with an emphasis on embedding MI training within organisations by creating sustainable MI learning communities to ensure their health practitioners maintain proficiency. Other aspects of my MI trainings include MI for groups, as well as Motivational Interviewing Treatment Integrity (MITI) evaluation and feedback tool.

As a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers means I’m part of a global community of people who share a similar vision of change and scrutiny of professional practice in order to be the most effective clinicians we can be by embracing the way of being MI offers. My special interest is in the relationship between MI and Cultural practices that facilitate change and have developed a framework for framing the journey of MI within the context of Maori practices (Tikanga) particularly the Powhiri process of engagement.
