Trainer Statement

I specialise in helping practitioners become more proficient in managing awkward conversations, where issues of behaviour change are centre stage, using motivational interviewing as the reference style.

My experience extends across diverse fields, countries and cultures, and from brief seminars to comprehensive week-long workshops. I’ve provided training and practice development coaching for more than 300 commissioning organisations in 18 countries, in the fields of healthcare, addictions treatment, criminal justice, social care, employment guidance and academic research.

I’ve worked with co-trainers in India, South Africa, the Islamic Republic of Iran, and Canada, and throughout Europe and Scandinavia. I’ve co-led training events for the European Commission and the UNODC. For a decade I was a visiting lecturer to Nord University in Norway and to Glasgow University in Scotland. Between 2014-20 I was a member of a team sponsored by the European Union – The Penitentiary and Probation Support Project – working with the Georgian Ministry of Justice in Tbilisi.

With the curtailment of face-to-face training during the pandemic I have provided training and coaching online

I have written a manual for practitioners, trainers and coaches - the MI Practice Blueprint. It's a free download, available from my website. 

Training Interests
I’ve done almost everything an MI trainer can do, but my particular interest is helping practitioners to swiftly improve their proficiency and resilience.
