Shahroo is a Behavioural Change Specialist in private practice. Her therapeutic approach is influenced by the experience she gained working in various roles across the frontline addiction treatment field in clinical, community and prison settings. During this time, Shahroo developed a knowledge of how to illicit self-led change, even in those who are most resistant to it. 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-awareness. She openly shares how the same evidence-based tools she used effectively with her clients in active addiction helped her to lose 8 stone in weight, increase her self-esteem and help her self-manage a range of unwanted habits around food and negative self-talk. She has delivered personal development workshops at The School of Life; provided training and consultancy services to the UK’s leading health and social care organisations and 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 chair the One in Five panel on mental health for Women of the World 2018 at Southbank Center. She is regularly invited to speak publicly on behaviour change, mental health and general wellbeing. Her work has most recently been featured on BBC Radio 1, Red Magazine, Psychologies Magazine, The Telegraph, The Pool, Marie Claire, Sheer Luxe, Grazia, Metro, Good Housekeeping, Evening Standard and Happiful to name a few. In 2017 Shahroo signed a 2-book international deal with Pan Macmillan. Her first book, The Kindness Method was released in June 2018. Her second book will be released in 2019.
