Trainer Statement

I have a particular interest in teaching how to apply motivational interviewing to assist individuals with a disability to achieve their goals. I have designed Agency programmes across a large statewide government service in Australia to build workforce capacity in motivational interviewing. This has included an ongoing Train the Trainer programme as well as voluntary monitoring and certification of practitioner ability. I conduct regular workshops in motivational interviewing and psychiatric and cognitive impairment in both the UK and in Australia.
