About Dr 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 medical hypnotherapist and psychotherapist who is also a qualified medical doctor. 

With over 30 years’ experience empowering others to lead happier, healthier lives, she has helped thousands of people find freedom from their suffering and positively transform their health and lives in a lasting way.

Dr Emma offers a comprehensive, integrative 'whole person' approach that uncovers and heals the deep roots of the problem, and activates the phenomenal ability of the body-mind to heal itself naturally, without medication or side effects.

Dr Emma qualified as a medical doctor in 1994, graduating with degrees in both Medicine and Medical Cell Biology. She worked for 11 years as an NHS hospital doctor. Frustrated by a lack of a holistic mind-body approach within conventional medicine and failure to address the real root causes of chronic health problems, she began her first therapeutic training in 2001 alongside her medical career. She chose to leave an established medical career in 2005 to dedicate herself full-time to her private therapeutic practice. 

Dr Emma is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, where she was invited to serve as an Elected Council Member for their Hypnosis and Psychosomatic Medicine Section. 

Emma is a member of the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine, the Complementary and Natural Health Care Council, the Complementary Medical Association and remains a fully registered Medical Practitioner of good standing with the General Medical Council.

Emma has undergone extensive post-graduate training including in the fields of mind-body medicine, medical and clinical hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, holistic lifestyle medicine, psychotherapy, psychology, trauma therapy, holistic pain management and pain neuroscience, brief high intensity therapies, rapid transformational therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, energy medicine and therapeutic and transformational coaching. Dr Rhead was the first graduate globally to obtain the cutting edge Integrative Immunopathology Certification programme offered by the Complementary Medical Association. This is a world-leading expert-led training in the evidence-based integrative and complementary medical treatment of immunological, inflammatory and automimmume disorders.
