My approach consists of using two highly client-centered evidence-based counselling techniques:
Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
MI consists of a collaborative conversation about change that has been demonstrated to improve focus and motivation. ACT is a technique designed to target one’s relationship to the unhelpful thoughts and emotions that drive behaviour.
