Motivational Interviewing Conference in Cardiff

Have just come raring back from the 2012 Cardiff Motivational Interviewing Conference.... and I’m feeling very motivated!

Bill Miller led the day with Steve Rollnick, a rare opportunity to work with both the founders of Motivational Interviewing together. 

It has been a while since I’ve had an opportunity of seeing Steve speak again but it was the first chance I’d ever had to work directly with Bill. 

Apart from reviewing old ground, participants also got a glimpse of some of the new ideas which will be fully expressed in their new edition of Motivational Interviewing that's coming out this summer.

Keep your eyes peeled for it. 

In the meantime, if you're looking for MI training either as an individual or in-house, get in touch with us and we can guarantee we'll offer you a stimulating and practical experience that will definitely change your practice.

Best Wishes



  1. Dear Paul

    Would you be able to let me have a copy of a programme of what the course would cover please.

    Many thanks


  2. Dear M,
    you can find all the details about the course here:

    Looking forward to seeing you on our course.

  3. Hi Paul

    Do you have any training coming to Portsmouth. The sessions you facilitated in Gunwharf were amazing!

    Best wishes,

  4. Dear T,

    We do not have any open courses planned in Portsmouth at the moment. However, Paul Grantham can deliver any topic as an in-house training anywhere in the country (and abroad!).
    Only this week he is visiting all three countries of Great Britain - Wales, England and Scotland. :-)

    So - please contact us at if you want him to come to your organisation.

  5. Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the information, MI is something I really use a lot in my work and I find it a incredibly valuable tool, especially within the addiction field.

    The organisation I am working for in running every year an annual lecture and for this year we have Steve Rollnick doing the lecture, revising 20 years of MI.

    Would you be interested in coming?

    The attendance is for free, but you need to confirm your attendance, as the spaces are limited.
    The lecture is in Cardiff, in Cardiff Bay, on the 26th of June 2012, starting from 5.30pm.

    Let me know if you are interested in coming and I will send you the invitation to the lecture.

    On that note, I was thinking, have you ever thought of running your workshops also in Cardiff/ Wales? I think there would be an interest.

    Kind Regards,

We are hoping to move our popular SDS Delegate Debate into this blogging format in the future and looking forward to lively discussions here with you.
