FIT goes beyond other brief motivational interventions by teaching clients how to elicit and practice motivational imagery themselves, resulting in sustained behaviour change. Everyday behaviours are used to cue imagery practice until it becomes a cognitive habit.
When can it be applied?
FIT is applicable to a wide range of conditions. Published research has shown it helps people develop healthy eating habits and lose weight, improves resilience and grit in athletes, and reduces self-harming in young adults.
Who can use FIT?
FIT is delivered by healthcare practitioners and coaches with person-centred counselling skills. If you work in the area of behaviour change and would like to become a FIT practitioner, please contact us to find out more about training.
