    Motivational interviewing is a patient-centred counselling method designed to build motivation for behaviour change by resolving ambivalence. It was developed in the addictions field and has since been applied to medical and health promotion settings. This paper will provide a brief overview of the method and will discuss how it may be used in consultations for patients with musculoskeletal problems to increase engagement with treatment and to build motivation for helpful behaviour change.
