Dr. Bali K Sohi is a Registered Psychologist (#1493) with the College of Psychologists of British Columbia. She was formally trained in the Scientist-Practitioner model of Psychology. Over the course of her career and formal education she has created and participated in several research projects. Dr. Sohi has worked with diverse youth, adult, and geriatric populations, exhibiting a broad range of psychiatric diagnoses in both psychiatric hospital and clinic settings.
A near death experience in 2000 dramatically changed her perception of the world. This experience encouraged her to delve deeper into the human psyche and attempt to understand mental and emotional processes that are not easy to validate empirically.
At the present time she has a full-time private practice in the Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada.
