In this episode of the podcast, Glenn and Sebastian explore MI in Dietetics with Orla Adams. Orla is a dietitian specialising in weight management.

Orla attended her first MI workshop in 2006, became a member of MINT (Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers) in 2011, and is a supportive committee member for MINT UK and Ireland. She is currently the Chair for the Program Planning Committee for the annual international MINT Forum. Orla is originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland and lives in Cardiff with her husband and two sons. She loves running, baking and learning to ice skate, not very successfully.
