As a busy professional, business owner and expert juggler we need to stay on top of our game. Life can get in the way and we feel lost, overwhelmed and not sure where to turn. Over time this effects our focus, energy, happiness and our body.

You’re in the right place.

I was just like you over 10 years ago, a marketing manager working to deadlines, keeping within budget, making a profit, filing reports, endless meetings and keeping everyone else happy and eating whatever I could get my hands on to skipping meals. I got a good salary, bonuses, I even worked in the Cyprus sunshine for part of it, but I wasn’t happy. I’d got the degree, the post graduate diploma, I’d had a great job in pr then into events marketing and management at one of the UK’s largest publishers, and a job in the sunshine. Nothing, was what I felt.

Then change came to get me.

I hadn’t learned anything after the last warning of high anxiety and acute depression. I was not loving life and life was not loving me. So it seemed watching death would kick me into action.

Within 11 hours on a Sunday in February 2008 we agreed to switch off the machines and allow our Dad to pass away peacefully. He had no fight left. Three heart attacks in one morning and no goodbye. I heard myself say in the minutes it took as left this world; if this is what life is, I want to LIVE.

Enough is Enough

No more fighting life to work out for me. I was on a mission to discover how I would make life work. I was turning it all around. Everything I knew to be true stopped at the time my Dad left this world. I had to learn life in a new way to live.


I’m good with a plan. I’d written too many to mention all with successful outcomes; marketing and lead generation campaigns, brand and event plans. I’d got this!


I needed new knowledge and went out there and allowed my mind to open up again to a new language - self development, energy and physiology.

I retrained. I wanted to learn how the mind, body and spirit really worked, and how could they help me create the changes I wanted to be happy and healthy.


I knew this awakening in me was happening to others. I had a dream one night in April 2008 and this one butterfly stood out. It was my ending and my new beginning. It was when belifehappy was born. A vision to help people stop fighting and start finding their happy again.


10 years on, belifehappy has guided me and hundreds of other people across social media, readers of the book, workshop attendees and clients.

Start your journey

It’s in the very first breath of awakening, as we realise we want to change some part of our life, that we fear:

  • What if I can’t do it?
  • I don’t deserve to be happy
  • I’m never going to be successful
  • I’m just not good enough
  • What will people think?
  • I’m fine, it doesn’t matter

You do matter.

On this journey together, I will support you and guide you to finding you again. The YOU, you want to be now. The you, who will be owning YOUR life choices, experiences and living your purpose and passions with energy, in your life and your business.

Here’s how we do this.

Mens Mental Health and noticing the signs with Emma Lannigan

Men’s Mental Health

In a Man’s World ‘Tough’ ‘Strong’ ‘Being man enough’; this is the intensity of being a man in a world where there is more pressure to be fit, healthy and successful.  At the same time, men are being torn between the old beliefs and our new beliefs and expectations of what it is to be […]

This is what people say about me

“I received distance Reiki from Emma and it was a lovely experience. I have been visiting Emma for a while now for hands on treatments but this was a new for me. I was able to totally relax in my own environment and the treatment was so gentle and supportive. Emma guided me through both before and after the treatment. I would whole heartedly recommend this experience to anyone. I am still feeling the benefits.” E. Toms.

Distance Reiki

Even though I am based in Manchester, our NLP sessions worked really well via Skype. I can honestly say that without my sessions with Emma I would not have had the confidence, self-belief nor motivation to set up my own counselling website and be nearly ready to launch my own business in January 2018.  I have been talking about it for years – and now it is finally a reality! I have used three of Emma’s services – firstly NLP, secondly distance Reiki, and thirdly business and marketing mentoring.

She definitely has a special touch and offers so much more than the professionalism and expertise in what she does.  I think what makes her unique is her down to earth approach, her honesty and genuineness and her incredible positive and motivating energy – it is infectious.

I would recommend her to anyone who isn’t feeling truly fulfilled with where they are or what they are doing in their life, needs help in setting clear lifelong goals (both personal and business) or has any limiting beliefs stopping them from doing what they truly want to achieve.

Jo Oliver, Private Counsellor, Manchester

Online Coaching

“I came on this workshop as the continuation of personal development sounded interesting. I try to go with few expectations, but I think this workshop has been accurate in terms of the theme of the workshop. Meeting new people and learning a new approach, plus being reminded of some techniques I already know has been helpful. The part of the workshop I found I didn’t enjoy the most was the self reflection, but that isn’t always easy, but it’s important. The workshop has been a worthwhile way to spend a morning learning something new which will have a positive effect on life it you let it.”

H.O, Four Steps to Learn Happiness, May 2017


“I would recommend this workshop. It’s early days but it has helped. It was good to talk with like minded people and I would recommend it to anyone who has similar problems including stress and anxiety.”

J.N, Four Steps to Learn Happiness, May 2017


“Excellent grounding in marketing and essential information on social media. Well taught and fun.” SM- Essential Marketing

Excellent Grounding

“I have found Emma to be highly motivated and a first class professional in all aspects of her work. Her enthusiasm and dedication to her work is infectious and I would not hesitate in recommending Emma to anyone looking for a refreshing and positive approach to the wellbeing and life coaching elements of belifehappy.”

“Working with Emma has truly been a beautiful and transformative experience. I love Emma’s caring, inspiring and passionate approach. Together we have worked on realising my future dreams, practising gratitude and being proactive in creating the life that I desire. She has been a wonderful support and guide to me and I am so grateful to have met and worked with her. I feel empowered and excited about my future and well equipped with tools and techniques to use going forward to continue my development. Emma is a gifted life coach and I can’t recommend her enough.”  E. Coles May 2017.

Transformative experience

‘I feel lucky to have crossed paths with Emma, at a time when I had set an intention to invest more in my own wellbeing. I purchased the ‘self-care 4 me’ package and I chose 4 full body massages. The package was incredibly good value and I enjoyed having a treatment to look forward to when I needed one.
The massage itself was wonderful; deeply relaxing with some unique shoulder stretches that helped improve the tension in my upper back. Emma made me feel at ease immediately, was warm and friendly and tailored the massage to me individually.
Through talking to Emma about some of the stress that I was experiencing in my life, she gave me some practices to help me protect my energy and I have used them every day since. Having been attuned to Reiki myself, these were practices that I could relate to, reminding me how valuable they can be at helping me to feel more in control.
I have had many holistic treatments including massages before but Emma’s passion, depth of knowledge and interest in me as an individual really set this experience apart and I would recommend her to anybody.’
– Nicola, mental health worker, March 2017

Investing in myself

“I had no idea what to expect but was looking forward to 50 minutes of lying still. After being cocooned in Emma’s beautifully calming treatment room, she took me through some guided breathing, then I closed my eyes while Emma moved around the couch.

The heat which Emma generated without even touching me was surprising. My tummy became quite noisy and my throat felt slightly tickly, but otherwise I can only describe my session as deeply wonderfully relaxing. I lost all sense of time and I can honestly say that I felt more ‘Zen like’ afterwards than I have in years; beautifully chilled and almost as if I had a force field around me.”

Stamford Living Feature, July 2015

Media Review

“Emma offers a number of treatments from her beautiful home in Market Deeping, I personally have Reiki and Massage treatments. Emma’s techniques go way beyond any other treatments I have had before and her prices, compared to that of beauty salons, which I personally feel don’t compare to what she offers, are very reasonable.”

H.P, Maxey, Business Owner.


Reiki and Massage

“My monthly massage with you is my medication. It’s my “me time” which is so important in our busy lifestyles we lead. I never leave a treatment without having the next one booked in.

Some look forward to buying a new handbag or new clothes as their treat, my number one treat to myself is looking after me. I look forward to my massages with Emma, for relaxation and destress time. It’s my monthly dose of “pick me up” medication.

As I say, ‘my body magic in an hour.’ I have recommended Emma many many times and will continue to do so.”

W.S. Langtoft, Healthcare.

Body Magic in an Hour

“Will definitely recommend Emma’s massages, can’t wait for my next one. Thanks Emma.”

KB, Business Owner, Market Deeping

“I have a monthly massage with Emma and it’s heaven. I always fall asleep as I’m so relaxed! Can highly recommend.”

Monthly massage K.S, Nursing, Healthcare

“A few weeks back I had a million and one things going through my mind.  I was angry and I just couldn’t see straight and it was having an effect on my life in that my relationship had broken down and it was effecting my work.

Over the period of a month I had three one hour face to face sessions with Emma and my anger has subsided. I feel calmer and communication in my work and personal relationships has improved massively. As a result I’m happily back at home with my partner and children, I spend more time at home and talk more and I’m looking forward to next year with a clearer and happier view.”

Releasing anger Male, 35-40 years, 2015

“By the time I left that session, despite not being able to complete the task I wanted to, I felt lifted.  I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders.  The next day I was walking into a situation I would previously not have managed.  Not only did I walk in but, with the tools that Emma had armed me with I totally nailed it!”

“I laughed and I cried and learned and I was inspired, I thought it was brilliant, it stays by my bedside! I especially liked my little signed message, always makes me smile!” Jan 2016


“Having been an enthusiastic and long time admirer of belifehappy, I was not disappointed by the recent release of Emma’s book. ‘Thought Provoking, Challenging, Inspirational & Emotive’ are all words I would use to describe Emma’s diary and thoughts. I would highly recommend belifehappy as a simple read or to assist in anyone’s journey in their search for their Happiness. I’ve bought copies for my friends and the individual messages that Emma writes are a lovely touch.” 

Thought provoking C. Johnson, Co-owner of Hobson & Pink.

“Thank you for sending me the book. The message you wrote was lovely very fitting. I’ve dipped in and out of belifehappy and find your words very inspirational. Put it this way even though I think I’m a fairly smiley person I made sure I smiled that bit more today, hopefully I brought a bit more cheer to the workplace. I enjoyed reading your memories of the China trek. I think it’s good to remind ourselves of our achievements, as time goes on its easy to forget these things. Hope you sell many more copies, each home could do with a be life happy book.” 

Smile a bit more Carolyn. E

“Emma the author takes you on her personal journey via her blog posts as she learns to self heal following a sudden tragedy. This book is great as a straight read through or you can pick it up and read the relevant bits! Lots of great tips and techniques to keep your life in balance and encourages you to step back and take in what’s around you.”
