Shortcodes on Custom Posts dispayed on a page

I have created a custom post type which I'm useing to keep clients galleries on. The galleries are displayed on Nextgen gallery.
All of the posts are listed on a page added to the buddypress profile. I can see the custom posts appear on the page and can view the content, I can't however get into the gallery which is added to the post through a shortcode, this has happened with other shortcodes for other plugins aswell such as the shortcodes ultimate plugin. The plugin shows in the content but cannot be used.
However if I open the custom post on a seperate window all the shortcodes work.

Is there any way I can get the shortcodes to work in the custom post when its displayed on a page.
