Dr Sohère Roked
“My goal is to help empower patients to control their healthcare and well being”.
Dr Sohère Roked (pronounced Sa-hair Row-ked) is a General Practitioner with a specialist interest in Integrative medicine. Her passion is to help empower patients to take control of their healthcare, using a range of tools to achieve this.
Born in England and brought up in Wales, she studied medicine at Southampton University and graduated in 2003. She has worked across hospitals in England and Wales, in the specialities of A&E, general medicine and surgery, women’s health, otolaryngology, and spent 3 years working as a psychiatrist before becoming a GP.
It was this broad knowledge of medicine that made her realise that the current conventional medical practise is far from complete. It did not provide her with the tools to understand and address the emotional, spiritual, environmental, social, nutritional, lifestyle and psychological issues that influence the health and well-being of so many patients.
Not all conditions fully improve with conventional treatments, which is something Dr Sohère has seen as an NHS GP. She has a strong belief that in order to achieve true health, you must look at the physical in conjunction with the mind as the two are closely linked and impact on each other, and this is often overlooked in conventional NHS health care.
Dr Sohère has a broad range of knowledge about both conventional and holistic medicine, and uses this to combine the two in her recommendations for better health, which is called Integrative Medicine. She has studied with the British College of Integrative Medicine and has been taught by experts in the field from the UK, Australia and the USA.
Dr Sohère has been prescribing bio-identical hormones for many years and sees hormone balance as the foundation of health. She also believes in the importance of preventative medicine and creates individualised wellness programmes for her patients to achieve optimum health.
