Shahroo is Behavioural Change Specialist. Her therapeutic approach is influenced by the experience she gained working in various roles across the frontline drug addiction treatment field in clinical, community and prison settings. She has since been dedicated to highlighting what those in long-term abstinent recovery from substance misuse can teach the general population about self-awareness, self-esteem and day-to-day habit-change.
She has delivered personal development workshops at The School of Life and provided training and consultancy services to the UK’s leading health and social care organisations. She also provides Relapse Prevention sessions at Amy’s Place, a recovery house set up by the Amy Winehouse Foundation for young women in abstinent recovery from alcohol abuse.
Shahroo’s public profile was raised in 2016 following a series of personal articles written by Marisa Bate in The Pool, after she was able to help her reform her drinking habits. Almost overnight she was inundated with requests for private sessions from people who wanted to change their relationship with alcohol and other drugs including sugar. Her work has also been very 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.
Shahroo’s work has been featured on BBC Radio 1, Red, Psychologies, The Telegraph, The Pool, Marie Claire, Sheer Luxe, Grazia, Metro, Good Housekeeping, Evening Standard and Happiful to name a few. She was also chosen as one of Red Magazine’s ‘Smart Women’ of 2018.
