Dr. Heather McKee's Evidence Based Insights

Episode 17: Why we don't need fixing

Why we don’t need fixing

Having worked in addictions for years behaviour change specialist and bestselling author Shahroo wanted to find a way to translate key behaviour change theory into an accessible format that could be used by her clients and be easy to apply to their everyday lives.

In this episode we discuss:

·      Shahroo’s top habit tip that she implements every day to help her overcome challenging situations

·      How forearmed is forewarned – having a plan of action is key

·      Why guidance is much more valuable than opinion

Questions to ask yourself based on this episode:

·      Can you become aware of your negative self-talk? And start to think about rewriting your own more encouraging script?

·      What three things will test me today? Can you jot down just three things and come up with ways in which you’d like to behave in response to them? For example, how will you deal with a difficult colleague? When temptation crops up?


It was so fun talking with Shahroo, and I’m not kidding when I say her book is jam-packed with incredibly effective ways in which to reflect on and improve your own habits. I know you will find today's conversation an interesting insight into how to cultivate kindness habits now!

What people are saying about The Habit Changer programme:

"You were put in my path for a reason. Over the course of our sessions a light bulb went off with me!!! That’s when it all changed for the better."
- Orla

"This programme is different from everything else you’ve ever done. It wasn’t just loads of advice. I liked learning and thinking about my goals – it wasn’t about someone else, it was about me specifically. We all know what we need to do, we need to exercise more and eat better but this was a different approach, it was empowering. Doing the programme was a light bulb moment for me, it became 100% obvious to me where I had failed in the past and what. I should do in the future. I feel so much more in control of my weight now but not only that I feel stronger, more relaxed and happier."
- Cathy

"It’s a different way of thinking a different perspective. All diets fail this isn’t a diet it’s different. It’s a lifestyle change it helps look at the behaviours behind why you eat rather than just solving the symptoms. It shows you if you take small but deliberate actions what the cumulative changes would be . I certainly feel positive I’m heading in the right direction. This isn’t a quick fix its looking at your motivation – changing your mindset and that helps change your behaviours."
