Dr Emma Rae Rhead


As one of only a handful of full-time Hypnotherapists 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 am so passionate about the life-changing effects that excellent, ethical hypnotherapy services can bring to peoples lives, that I chose to leave an established medical career to provide it and pursue my private practice full-time. Clients can choose to see me in my Chester Practice, in Rodney Street, Liverpool or in Harley Street London.

I have over 25 years clinical experience and have conducted tens of thousands of face-to-face consultations in that time. My busy and established private practice regularly receives referral from NHS Hospital Consultants, GPs and other health professionals.

I specialise in providing integrated hypnotherapy and psychotherapy services to individuals who are struggling with issues such as anxiety, panic attacks, stress, chronic pain, alcohol, addictions, low fertility, psychosomatic and medical health issues. Please visit my website for more information about me and the services I offer.

Warm, friendly and down to earth, I will approach you as a unique individual. Rather than focusing on medical labels, I take a broad and holistic view of your current issues, looking at all physical, psychological, emotional, social and spiritual factors that may be having an impact on your current health and then devise effective treatment interventions to resolve your issues. As primarily a Brief Therapist, my aim is to help you achieve genuine, lasting positive change safely in the fastest time possible for you.

If you are considering working with me, please call me on 01244 470181 or email me direct on emma@chesterhypnotherapy.co.uk to discuss your particular needs.
