Dr Shradha Lakhani
Consultant Clinical Psychologist
My name is Dr Shradha Lakhani, and I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, specialsing in Cancer and Palliative care.
Training and experience:-

Alongside cancer and palliative care treatments which is my core specialist area, I also have specific clinical interests in the areas of weight management, bariatric surgery and cosmetic surgery and reconstruction. I enjoy working with people and helping them to grow and develop. This usually takes the form of individual consultation and therapeutic input. My expertise is assisting people in a wide range of areas: from dealing with traumatic life threatening events to managing transitions, adjustments and family dynamics, to coping with pain and sleep difficulties. Clinical conditions may be related to anxiety, panic, depression, chronic illness, body image issues, post-traumatic stress disorder, as well as assessments for risk reducing mastectomies, breast augmentation assessments and weight management assessments.
Although majority of the work I undertake is on a 1-1 basis for patients, there are also times when I have offered group work. The majority of the group work is within the realms of Living with and Beyond Cancer programmes, but I do also offer managing Stress, Anxieties and General Life experiences programmes, alongside Mindfulness based relaxation group programmes.
