I've found lots of info on motivational interviewing for strengthening a person's own motivation and commitment to change, but I'm wondering if this technique has been adapted to help people who won't or can't get to a counselor or therapist.

Is a therapist required to administer the interviews? Has anyone used the technique without having therapist appointments, e.g., could an interactive website provide similar guidance?

I've created a list of online resources that might be worth checking into. Could be interesting to ask the people who run them. I don't see why an appointment would be required, though one might expect a different standard of service working in-person with a professional of course. Differences might include legal rights and protections as well. –  Nick Stauner Jun 4 at 21:50
