drchris,
Depends whether the cable is run in insulation - if it is 10mm is not enough.
If you have any doubts get a friendly sparky to confirm cable size.

"What size cable will a 9.5 kw shower require"

Whatever your electrician says it will need. Its Part P twice - once at the consumer unit and once in the bath/shower room.

How do you know that when the OP has neither indicated the routeing nor the length of the cable involved?
