Shahroo Izadi is a Behavioural Change Specialist. In the summer of 2016 she was featured in the Pool in a personal series of articles with journalist Marisa Bate, who went to Shahroo for help in looking at her alcohol use. Almost overnight, Shahroo’s private practice had a months long waiting list and she was inundated with press requests. Just after this, Shahroo’s ‘Changing Habits’ course at the School of Life was advertised and it sold out for the rest of the year. This then led to her book The Kindness Method, focusing on how to break bad habits. Shahroo spoke on a panel at the 2017 Women of the World Festival at the Southbank Centre and has worked with BBC Radio 1, Red magazine, the Telegraph and Psychologies.
Shahroo is a support group facilitator and therapist at Amy's Place, a recovery house for women set up by The Amy Winehouse Foundation and a Senior Consultant for Emerging Horizons delivering professional development training and advisory services for leading health and social care organisations including the NHS and CGL. She has also worked alongside MIND and the Migrant Resource Centre.
