Qualifying as a medical doctor in 1994, Dr Rhead has over a decade’s experience as a NHS medical doctor. Deeply frustrated by the lack of a holistic mind-body-spirit approach to people suffering illness, the over-reliance on prescribing medication and the lack of time to properly listen, she chose to leave an established medical career as a hospital doctor in 2005 to work exclusively in private practice as a rare medically-trained hypnotherapist and mind-body specialist where she has passionately remained ever since.

Prior to her medical career, Dr Emma worked as a Medical Cell Biologist studying how human cells communicate with each other and receive signals from the outside world (funded by the Wolfson Foundation and The Wellcome Trust). She remains a full member of the Royal Society of Biology.

For your peace of mind, Dr Rhead remains is a registered medical practitioner of good standing with the General Medical Council and is a fully accredited, insured, DBS checked and regulated hypnotherapist, psychotherapist and coach.
