Shahroo is an Addictions and Behavioural Change Specialist in private practice. Her therapeutic approach is influenced by the experience she gained as a Criminal Justice Lead in the addiction treatment field. The role involved working with a diverse range of clients who were required by law to complete rehabilitation programs. During this time, Shahroo developed a knowledge of how to illicit self-led change, even in those who are most resistant. She has since been dedicated to highlighting what those in long-term recovery from substance misuse can teach the general population about motivation, resilience and self-management. Amongst her various roles, Shahroo is a support group facilitator and therapist at Amy's Place, a recovery house for women set up by The Amy Winehouse Foundation. She has delivered workshops at The School of Life. and as a Consultant with Emerging Horizons, she has worked alongside Westminster MIND, training Wellbeing Coaches who use their own experience of mental health recovery to support others in their communities. Shahroo's work has been well received by the field of mainstream personal development and she was invited to discuss women's relationship with alcohol at the 2017 Women of the World Festival. Her approach to self-management of problematic drinking behaviours has most recently drawn attention from BBC Radio 1, Red Magazine, Psychologies Magazine, The Telegraph and The Pool.
