"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".   L.Brawn, Cheshire. (Anxiety/Health Anxiety) 

"Inspiring and Empowering"  

"Working with Emma has been a truly inspiring and empowering life experience for me. I initially came to see Emma to try and cope better with ongoing, chronic pain due to a life changing spinal injury. This has been achieved far beyond my expectations. Emma has given me not only rich understanding but real ownership of my condition and it's impact on me. Her obvious experience and expertise together with a thoroughly genuine, kind and thoughtful nature means I would absolutely recommend her without hesitation. Today, I not only 'feel' empowered but genuinely 'am' through the inner belief she has helped instill within me".   M. Steene, North Wales (Chronic Pain and Spasms)


"I cannot rate Dr Rhead higher in my professional esteem"

She is a compassionate, professional practitioner who brings her medical and hypnotherapeutic knowledge and experience into an amazing concert of warmth, empathy and congruence. 
In my opinion, she is without doubt, one of the most truly gifted practitioners in the UK."

Shaun Brookhouse, MA. Principal of the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy. President of the European Association for Hypno-Psychotherapy


"A kind, holistic, intelligent practitioner with so much to offer " 

"I was very daunted about my first appointment with Emma, since I struggled to even leave my home without experiencing panic attacks. However, her gentle manner and genuine interest put me at ease very quickly and I found her extremely easy to talk to. Hypnosis was so different to what I'd expected: it was very soothing and made me feel safe and still in control at all times - nothing to fear! However, hypnosis is just one of many wonderful things Emma has to offer: she is extremely kind, compassionate and empathetic. She listens closely and takes time to discuss and explain things clearly and articulately. When I sought Emma's help I was feeling frustrated by medical professionals trying to shoehorn me into an ill-fitting box or down a particular treatment pathway - in contrast, Emma thinks very holistically and treats the individual as a whole person, bringing her many years of experience (both in traditional medicine and many other techniques) to our sessions. Importantly, I found her to be open, down-to-earth and straightforward in expressing her views and I believe she works with the utmost honesty and integrity. My recovery is still ongoing, but I am in a much better place thanks to her support". S.B. 

"Life saver!!! "

"A true life saver!!! After a year or two of battling the dark thoughts in my head of Impending doom I felt helpless. Convinced I was going to die, that the doctors had missed something in the countless tests and appointments I had. I was consumed with fear and doubt! At my lowest point my days were spent with tears in my eye and a stomach full of medication to try and suppress my thoughts. It was finally one of the local GP's that explain to me I had health anxiety. Now armed with the knowledge of what I was dealing with, there was more medication to take and lots of self help to do. This wasn't working. Dr Emma was my last hope! I had never been to see a hypnotherapist before and was sceptical if it would work. Dr Emma has been fantastic!!! I was put at ease when we first met, she is a true professional and a true life saver!! After my first appointment I could see light at the end of the tunnel. There are no words for me to best describe the help, support and guidance I have received from her. I hold this wonderful lady with such high regard and have the upmost respect for her. My days are now filled with smiles, I cannot thank her enough for all she has done for me. Truly remarkable".  T. Poole, North Wales (Anxiety / Health Anxiety) 

"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".  AN 

"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".  Lynn.

"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." CE

"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 and outings 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". Hayley S. North Wales (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)

"A gentle but positive attitude in a peaceful comfortable atmosphere"

As this was my first experience of Hypnotherapy, I was unsure what to expect, but Dr Emma welcomed me into a peaceful comfortable atmosphere which put me at ease straight away. She has a gentle but very positive attitude and although my own particular problem was probably a little unusual, she helped me bring it under control and helped enormously with my feeling of wellbeing.
