Dr Emma Rae Rhead B.Sc Hons, M.B.Ch.B (Medical Doctor) Medical Hypnotherapist
Are you looking for professional, safe, effective hypnotherapy with a highly experienced Hypnotherapist who is also a qualified medical doctor?
As a rare full time Medical Hypnotherapist in the UK who is also a qualified Medical Doctor, I help people achieve their best health and success naturally without drugs or side effects.
I have over 25 years clinical experience and have conducted tens of thousands of face-to-face consultations. As well as self-referring clients, my busy, established Chester Hypnotherapy practice receives regular referral from NHS Hospital Consultants, GPs, Solicitors, Dentists, Clinical Psychologists, Psychotherapists and other Hypnotherapists.
I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine where I serve as an Elected Member of Council for their Hypnosis and Psychosomatic Medicine Section.

I specialise in providing integrated hypnotherapy and psychotherapy services to individuals who are struggling with anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, health anxiety, stress, IBS, persistent pain, alcohol, addictions, skin problems, psychosomatic and other health issues. I am confident helping clients with complex medical needs.
Non-judgemental, warm, friendly and down to earth, I will approach you as a unique individual recognising that you are the expert on you.
Rather than focusing only on medical labels, my unique set of skills allows me to take a uniquely broad, holistic view of your current issues, looking at physical, psychological, emotional, social and lifestyle factors that may be having an impact on your current health and well being.
As a medical doctor, I am of course highly trained in clinical history taking and symptom assessment, so unlike a hypnotherapist without medical training, I am able to make a detailed and full clinical assessment which is vital to safe, effective hypnotherapy treatment.
My therapeutic approach is entirely client-focused. All personal one to one sessions are uniquely tailored to your particular individual needs. Confidentiality and ethical practice are at the for front of how I work at all time.
Rest assured, as a scientist by training (Ph.D level research), I only use evidence-based treatment interventions that have been shown to work in clinical trials, academic journals, or anecdotally over many years of clinical practice.
My aim is always to help you achieve genuine, lasting positive change safely in the fastest time possible for you.
