Our Development Process:
We lead an initial ‘design thinking’ workshop with 5-10 people involving them in the following:
Thinking about how to best customise the mi-healthcoach™ platform/app to deliver the desired health and wellbeing outcomes
Agreeing on the look and feel of the interface and the initial feature set to be offered to users
Ensuring the app is integrated and supportive of any existing web portal, hub or corporate intranet wellbeing pages.
Use rapid prototyping and agile development methods to provide you with progressively better prototypes, typically in 3-4 weekly cycles.
Test each prototype with staff and users, including directly observing potential users interacting with the avatar-based platform whilst they talk out loud, as well as interviewing people after using the platform discover what they liked about it, found helpful, found frustrating, and what features they would like to see in any future version.

We held an international symposium on motivational interviewing in Cardiff and asked Tim Anstiss to provide a plenary address. His use of humour was deceptive. He brought the house down a number of times, but no-one was fooled into thinking the content was facile or lightweight. Indeed, the serious points became sharper in focus. Tim has an immense grasp of how research, training and practice can be linked. His knowledge of motivational interviewing is broad and hugely insightful. He's right at the top of the list as a speaker and trainer.

Working with Tim was like a breath of fresh air, helping us to think differently and supporting us in working creatively in our project for young people with cancer.
Prof Mike Stevens. Consultant Paediatric Oncologist
I have known Dr Tim Anstiss for ten years through his work in Motivational Interviewing. He has an excellent teaching style and understanding of Motivational Interviewing technique which is extremely effective at managing behavioural change. I really could not recommend anyone more highly than Tim. He provides humour and interest and we see the results of his workshop in action through videos of our GPs in training. The feedback from his talks has always been excellent.
Dr David Pullan. GP Training Course Organiser
Tim uses his engaging style to deliver common sense messages to people about looking after themselves and taking power into their own hands. He proved equally popular with all members of our audience: managers, staff and service users.
