“The best therapist you will find”

I had previously tried hypnotherapy and many other forms of talking therapies with little or no improvement in my general wellbeing. I became very disillusioned with the process and had little faith in finding someone who could offer me something different. I wanted a therapist who could provide me with the skills to manage my conditions. I came to see Emma and I can honestly say, it was the best thing I have done in such a long time. Her sessions are full of knowledge and compassion and she brings her thorough medical experience and knowledge into each session. Her style and delivery is excellent and you feel empowered to make positive changes. I feel I could tackle things with confidence and I would not be in the position I am today without her. I still have challenging days but I feel skilled to now react when these bad times arise and find that I am bothered less when they occur. Emma is a kind, caring and non-judgemental therapist who I would strongly recommend to anyone in need of making positive and long lasting changes to your life. She takes the time to understand your situation and will tailor each session to provide the most benefit to your issues. I feel lucky to have been on this journey with Emma and feel confident in the knowledge that should I ever go through a particularly difficult period in life I can turn to Emma for help and support. I strongly believe it is the therapist and not the therapy and I also strongly believe that Emma is about the best therapist you will be able to find”.
 

 “The Best”

I would never have dreamt of me doing anything like this before, & to be honest, I knew very little about it (therapy?). But...... I am so pleased that I found Dr Rhead & that I also found the courage to pick up the phone & make the initial contact. From the first moment of that call & then right throughout our journey together, Emma made me feel completely at ease - with no worries whatsoever - not only with support & encouragement but she also created the ambience at each session - without me realising - for me to be totally me. No matter how I felt on arrival - or whatever occurred during our times together, I always seemed to leave with a smile....... Emma is a lovely person. She is warm, gentle & she genuinely cares. I cannot recommend her more highly. Thank you so much Emma - for helping me to make changes in my life & in my outlook, to make my world a much better place. I just wish I had found you a long time ago..”
 

“Excellent results”

Was extremely pleased with the results from seeing her.
 

“Professional and friendly service

Dr Emma Rae Rhead's professional and friendly approach in helping me deal with my insomnia was greatly appreciated. I felt reassured by the fact that I was seeing a medically qualified doctor. If like me you have explored other methods of dealing with insomnia without any success, I would certainly recommend giving hypnotherapy a try”.
 

“Amazing”

I Highly recommend Dr Emma Rae ... when i first came to Emma my IBS was really bad and unbearable, to the point that every day i could not go anywhere without taking medication and planning my trips andoutings to the nearest toilet location. This was impacting on my mental health and making me feel trapped. After a couple of sessions with Emma i had completely stopped all medication and was starting to feel so much better. Now years on I cannot thank Emma enough for giving me back my independence and allowing me to enjoy my life as I should. I now control my IBS it does not control me”
 

“Emma has changed my life!”

I am so pleased to have found Emma and her services. I had been struggling with IBS for over twenty years and tried everything so when I came to her I was pretty despondent.  After our first session my IBS was 'cured' - I was elated although Emma did point out that this wasn't usual after just one session but months later I remain IBS free - I can't thank her enough. Of course, as with most things it didn't end there. I understood my IBS and other symptoms had anxiety disorder at their root and I had further sessions with Emma to work on this. I found her so easy to place my trust in as she is so open, genuine and honest. She is a very gifted and skilled individual. Over several sessions she looked into the underlining causes of my deep rooted anxiety and we together addressed many issues from my childhood that had clearly influenced my thoughts and emotions. Some of what we addressed was painful and stirred deep fears, sadness and pain but Emma guided me through discussion and hypnotherapy to face and accept the physical and emotional symptoms my anxieties had created. Emma has moved me forwards to a position of understanding and accepting my anxiety as 'normal' human responses. I still have work to do but I feel I now have the tools and self-compassion to do so. I would recommend Emma's services without question - she has made so much difference to my life and I am so grateful to her. Many of my friends, family and colleagues have questioned the positive difference they have seen in me over recent months and I explain to them that it is down to Emma, however, as she herself would say, you need to go with an open and receptive mind and work with her.

 

“A Fantastic Therapist! “

When I decided that I needed the help of a therapist, I didn’t really know where to look or what to look for. After finding Dr Emma Rae Rhead’s website, I decided to get in touch. Emma’s professional but reassuring responses to my initial messages put me at ease and, after meeting her, I realised that I would be able to trust her to help me unravel my problems.

 Emma is a genuine, honest and gifted therapist who offers a very personalised service. I have found her extensive medical background to be of huge benefit to me. She has gently encouraged me along the way to see things from different perspectives as well as helping me to develop a set of skills to take forward with me after I leave therapy. I would recommend Emma to anyone - I have been truly blessed to work with her.
 

A thoroughly positive experience from start to finish.

Dr Emma, was great for me. She is so positive and reassuring and during my hypnotherapy she made me feel at ease from the moment I met her. She has helped me enormously and I cannot thank her enough.
 

“Life Changing Experience!!”
Emma is an incredible therapist, her kindness and professionalism shine through. Having struggled drinking too much in the evenings for many years, coping with the stresses of a very demanding career, I had tried many things to help including counselling, NHS services, and another hypnotherapist (no comparision!) and nothing had really helped. As soon as I first spoke with Emma, I felt confident she could help. After my first session, I found I cut in half my daily wine intake from a bottle every night with no trouble at all, and by the second session, I was having several days a week without alcohol. I had 3 more sessions and each one I learnt something new. Its over 2 years now and I have remained fully in control with alcohol drinking safe levels and can enjoy a social drink if I want, something I thought would never have been possible. I can't thank you enough Emma. Don't hesitate to choose to work with Dr Emma, it will be your best decision”.
 

“Dr Emma Rae Rhead is an excellent, very experienced professional hypnotherapist”.

Dr Emma Rae Rhead is an excellent and very experienced professional hypnotherapist. She is a lovely person, very understanding, intuitive, perceptive and compassionate. Makes you feel completely at ease from the first time you meet her. I would not hesitate to recommend Emma”.

“Highly rated service”.

I was instantly made to feel at ease when I first approached Dr. Emma Rae Rhead. The therapeutic support I received (in terms of Dr. Emma Rae Rhead's knowledge, intuitive connectedness and empathy) went 'above and beyond' any support service I had previously experienced. I am forever grateful to Dr. Emma for her tireless support, and compassion throughout the entirety of my therapy.

“Very reassuring”

I am extremely happy with my experience with Dr Emma Rhead. She gave me lots of advice and made me feel less worried about my situation. I would most certainly recommend her to anyone”.

“Highly Recommended”

I decided to contact Emma after reading the impressive information on her website. It was simple to book an appointment and she really listened to the issues I spoke about. Emma's support has been gentle, yet proactive, fitting my need at the time. This has been central to helping me through a really difficult year. I can strongly recommend Emma as a Trusted Practitioner”.

“A very approachable safe pair of hands”

I found Dr Rhead very approachable and she put me at ease straight away. I selected Dr Rhead because of her medical background and found this useful in her explaining to me about how your body works and how your mind and body affect each other. I found the treatment beneficial and if anyone is thinking of trying hypnotherapy for the first time, then I would recommend you book in with Dr Rhead as I would consider her a safe pair of hands”.

“Trusted and highly recommended therapist

Emma is a very experienced and sympathetic therapist having coached me through some very difficult times. She has been a very important part of my recovery and I owe my good mental health to her”.
 

“I can't recommend her enough

Dr Emma has helped me immensely in such a short period of time. I had 4 sessions of hypnotherapy to help with my IBS and anxiety about it, and I was really not expecting the great results that came from this. Dr Emma was patient, understanding and made me feel relaxed in a situation that I was definitely not used to. I can't recommend her enough”.
 

“Worth the money!”

“An extremely positive experience with an empathetic and very professional practitioner. Her warmth as a person and her good listening skills enhance the sessions. She is honest about possible results and the length of the course of treatment. I am still feeling benefits from the treatment I had and would have no hesitation in recommending her”.
