Motivational Interviewing at Banyan Boca
Mental health therapy can be a difficult and discouraging process for many people. For some, staying motivated and building self-esteem during the healing process can be a challenge. If you or a loved one can relate, then motivational interviewing therapy can help.
What Is Motivational Interviewing?
Motivational interviewing is a counseling technique that focuses on encouraging patients and building their motivation to receive therapy and care for their mental health issues. When you come across a bump in the road that seems more like an immovable wall, it’s easy to feel discouraged. That’s where motivational interviewing comes in. During motivational interviewing for mental health and wellness, patients will have individual sessions with a therapist to discuss the individual’s behavioral practices, struggles, and reasons for seeking therapy. Patients are often hesitant to divulge personal details about their issues and thoughts. Our mental health center in Boca honors patient privacy and confidentiality. The focus of motivational interviewing is to help patients realize the contributing factors to their challenges and devise an effective action plan.

Motivational interviewing is an effective and helpful form of therapy to use during mental health healing, but it’s not the only form of therapy we offer at Banyan Boca, we offer various mental health and wellness programs. While disorder-specific therapies cover the most evident aspects of active mental health issues, incorporating additional therapies is vital to addressing the underlying emotional and mental effects of a disorder or illness. But in order to achieve success, patients have to choose to receive therapy. We use motivational interviewing to encourage patients to take that first step and agree to get help for their mental health issues.
The chances of sustaining long-term mental health increases when additional therapy is received. If you or someone you know needs an extra boost to take that first step, contact us today for more information about our motivational interviewing and mental health services.
