About Emma

Dr Emma Rae Rhead. B.Sc (Hons), M.B.Ch.B, MRSB, MCMA, Dip. Clin. Hyp, DEHP, ECCH

Dr Emma Rae Rhead is a highly experienced hypnotherapist, mind-body medicine practitioner, trauma therapist, integrative psychotherapist and coach who is also a qualified medical doctor. 

With over 28 years’ experience empowering others to lead happier, healthier lives, she has helped thousands of clients find freedom from their suffering and positively transform their lives in a lasting way.

Dr Emma offers a comprehensive, integrative approach that uncovers and heals the deep rooted imbalances at the heart of the problem, and activates the phenomenal ability of the body to heal itself naturally, without medication or side effects.

She specialises in helping individuals with anxiety, trauma, medically unexplained symptoms and a range of medical conditions (such as IBS, chronic pain, migraine, neurological, bladder issues, challenging diagnoses).

Dr Emma qualified as a medical doctor from the University of Liverpool in 1994, graduating with degrees in both Medicine and Medical Cell Biology. She worked for 11 years as an NHS hospital doctor within hospital medicine, neurology and pathology. Frustrated by a lack of a holistic mind-body approach within conventional medicine and no time to address the real root causes of chronic health problems, she began her first psychotherapeutic training in 2001 alongside her medical career. She chose to leave an established career in 2005 to dedicate herself full-time to her private therapeutic practice. 

She has since built busy, successful therapeutic practices in Chester, Cheshire and Harley Street, London and now has an online practice working with clients throughout the UK and worldwide.

Emma's practice receives regular referral from hospital consultants, GPs, clinical psychologists, therapists and other health professionals, as well as self-referring clients.

Dr Emma was invited to serve as an Elected Council Member for the Hypnosis and Psychosomatic Medicine Section of the Royal Society of Medicine and has been listed on the public referral list of the British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis.

Emma's background is as a research human cell biologist and she has undertaken postgraduate research at the University of Liverpool studying how human cells communicate with each other within the body. She remains a member of the Royal Society of Biology and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine.
