THE KINDNESS METHOD
By combining her own therapeutic style, personal experience and techniques learned from working in substance misuse, Shahroo shares simple steps that help strengthen your willpower like a muscle, so you can sustain motivation for the long haul.
Shahroo shares her totally non-judgmental and flexible process for mapping and changing your habits, based on treating yourself with the compassion and understanding that would normally be reserved for others.
It works for everything from procrastination to alcohol consumption and negative self-talk, because the plan is bespoke: mapped by you, for you and driven by self-motivation.
The Kindness Method is one of my favourite books.
I love Shahroo's positive, optimistic approach and her focus on building our self-esteem rather than tearing ourselves down.
A game-changing book about habits and beliefs that focuses on boosting our self-esteem and resilience, rather than demonising ourselves or our behaviours.
And we can use it to change any unwanted behaviour.
A guide to creating your own bespoke programme...what I've noted is a palpable sense of relief from realising that being critical of myself is counter-productive.
It turns out it's nice to be nice. Especially to yourself.
THE LAST DIET
By adapting The Kindness Method framework, Shahroo 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.
The Last Diet helps you identify where your unhealthy habits come from, and how to accept them, change them and what to do when you slip up through self-tailored exercises to maintain your physical and mental wellbeing.
Shahroo guides you through every step, helping you to draw out your own wisdom and find motivation for changing long-term habits and losing weight for good.
The best thing is you learn so much about yourself - what motivates and challenges you - which is applicable to every area of life, along the way.

THE MAIL ON SUNDAY
Shahroo's approach is incredibly innovative. Personally, I've gained so much from reading her book The Kindness Method. In the past I have bought many "self-help" books but I often fail to finish reading them. Shahroo's book however is both deeply compelling and extremely practical. Her method has helped me to cultivate more self-compassion and peace of mind. Thanks to The Kindness Method I have now realised how vital both of these qualities are, especially if one struggles with their mental health.

Lots of people talk or write vaguely about self-esteem but The Kindness Method is the only plan I’ve come across that sets out clearly and simply what you can do to understand yourself better and increase your sense of confidence and self-worth.
