Karine Nohr, MB ChB

Karine Nohr was born in South Africa, started her education in France and completed her schooling in London. She then went to Sheffield Medical School. She works primarily as a General Practitioner and also as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in Gynaecology, both within the British National Health Service. She has a Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.

In general practice she works in an area of inner city deprivation, within and alongside a large multidisciplinary team that has a tradition of providing holistic care for both patients and staff. The team embraces other therapeutic modalities, the development of which has been a key role for Karine. These have included and mostly continue to include Acupuncture, Herbalism, Massage, Tai Chi, Yoga, Pilates, Art Therapy, Psychotherapy, Physiotherapy, Creative Writing and Walking groups. The Practice also nurtures strong links with several community groups and has played a key role in their establishment and ongoing management. What particularly interests Karine about Integrative Medicine is how we stay mindful of the multi-dimensionality of a person (as opposed to the compartmentalised dualism approach of contemporary Western medicine and its inherent mind/body/spirit split) and bring together the different therapeutic modalities in a holistic and collaborative manner that is healing, empowering, accessible and congruent for both the patient and their community.

Sheffield, otherwise known as ‘Steel City’, lies in South Yorkshire, Northern England. Despite its industrial heritage, it is surrounded by magnificent countryside (the Peaks and the Moors).

In her non-working life, Karine enjoys travelling, cooking, tennis, world cinema and sitting in good company with the sun shining!
