It doesn’t matter what the habit is that you want to change – I’m going to show you how to do it. And how to make those changes last forever. - Shahroo Izadi
The Kindness Method is the key to breaking unwanted habits for good. By combining her own therapeutic style, personal experience and techniques learned from working in substance misuse, Shahroo Izadi 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 body positivity because the plan is bespoke: mapped by you, for you and driven by self-motivation.
Shahroo will teach how to:
- Believe you can change
- Clarify your reasons for changing
- Plan how you’re going to do it
- Prepare for what is likely to throw you off track
Start mapping your habits, setting your own goals with honesty and start treating yourself with the kindness you truly deserve!
