Dr Sohini Shah

Clinical Psychologist

Hello, my name is Dr Sohini Shah and I am a Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years of experience working in the NHS with mental health and neurodevelopmental conditions across the life span. I specialise in working with children, young people and their families and have a number of years of experience working in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) in the NHS.

In addition to private practice, I currently work in the NHS as a highly specialist Clinical Psychologist in CAMHS.

I understand that starting therapy can feel daunting and I value being able to offer a calm, confidential and non-judgemental space where young people are met with compassion and warmth.

Through my training as a Clinical Psychologist, I can provide evidence based therapeutic interventions for a range of presentations.

The difficulties I work with include:

  • General Anxiety

  • Panic

  • Agoraphobia

  • Social Anxiety

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Specific Phobias

  • Health Anxiety

  • Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Low mood and depression

  • Trichotillomania

  • Tics and Tourette’s

  • Low self-esteem

  • Sleep difficulties

I have seen a lot of clients with neurodiversity such as Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC), Asperger’s Syndrome and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) and make suitable adaptations to therapy for individual needs.

I primarily practice using a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach and am also trained in using other approaches such as the following:

  • Eye movement desensitisation therapy (EMDR)

  • Cognitive Behavioural therapy with Exposure Response Prevention (ERP)

  • Compassion focused therapy (CFT)

  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)

  • Solution focused therapy (SFT)

  • Systemic approaches

  • Mindfulness based approaches

  • Behavioural Therapy

I am able to adapt my therapeutic approach flexibly, to consider the evidence base and you/your child’s unique needs and hopes.

Professional Status
I hold Professional registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Registered Practitioner Psychologist.
