Tipene has been an Alcohol and Drug counsellor for the past 20 years and has his own recovery story.

He has worked across a variety of settings, including Government, NGOs, and in Private-Practice. Tipene has a strong background in group facilitation, Motivational Interviewing, Relapse Prevention as well as Tikanga Māori based ways of healing. These include Te Whare Tapa Wha (the four sides of the house), Powhiri (process of engagement), Poutama (Journey of healing and enlightenment), Pātūwatawata o te Marae (The palisades of the Pā) and others.

Tipene has a special interest in the relationship between Tikanga Māori and MI and has developed a model utilising the Pātūwatawata and Pōwhiri process. This process develops the conversation of change that MI offers, making it Tikanga consistent and acknowledging both indigenous and western worldview and processes.

As a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers, Tipene is part of a global community of people who share a similar vision of change and scrutiny of professional practice. This contributes to us becoming the most effective clinicians we can be, embracing the way of being MI offers.
