Shahroo Izadi is a Behavioural Change Specialist and author of The Kindness Method, which has been translated into five languages and was a Shelf Help Club book of the month. She started her career in the NHS before setting up her private practice. Her therapeutic approach is influenced by her frontline addiction treatment work in clinical, community and prison settings. During this time, Shahroo developed a knowledge of how to ellicit self-led change, even in those who are most resistant to it. She shares how the same evidence-based tools she used effectively with her clients in active addiction helped her to lose eight stone in weight, increase her self-esteem and help her self-manage a range of unwanted habits around food and negative self-talk.
Shahroo's work has been featured widely on BBC Radio1, the Telegraph, Psychologies and Red Magazine and she ran a sell-out workshop at The School of Life. Her 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 runs sell-out workshops in London and is regularly asked to speak publicly on behavioural change, mental health and addiction.
