Stay Pumped about Your New Year’s Resolution

It’s the ultimate New Year’s resolution challenge—staying motivated. Could a counselor or EAP familiar with motivational interviewing techniques help? Motivational interviewing is a counseling technique that does not direct you, but leads you to find the compelling reasons and the big “why” of your goal or resolution so you feel compelled to act. You also explore the roadblocks that interfere with success. A good counselor does not direct, take the wheel, or thrash you into taking action. Instead, motivational interviewing is a team effort to enable you to discover the natural motivation you already possess in order to succeed in attaining what you really want.
