Welcome to escape 

Within my practice I offer Hypnotherapy, Reiki Energy Healing, Hypnobirthing and Counselling. Sessions are available at Mama Sanctuary, Stockport or in Lymm. 

Due to lots of factors, including modern day stresses and unhealed parts of our childhood, we struggle to enjoy our lives completely. I feel passionately about everybody being able to enjoy their lives as they are meant to and would love to work with you.

Please contact me on the below details to arrange an initial consultation to look at how we can work on achieving the life you want.

Here at Escape, I offer Counselling. I am a Psychotherapeutic counsellor and use different modes of counselling to suit you. As an extension to Mama Escape where my support is purely tailored to mums, Escape is for the whole family. I offer counselling for anxiety, depression, stress, self-confidence, motivation, public speaking, phobias, bereavement, loss, exams, bullying, adolescence, divorce, separation, and anger management.


It could be that you feel you have lost yourself and just need guidance, this is where I can offer life coaching and spiritual mentoring. Parenting too is hard and if as parents you are struggling to cope and it is causing pressure on you both, Escape is the perfect place to free your mind.


Reiki Energy Healing is an alternative therapy that can release a lot of emotional and mental anguish in the body. Stress, anxiety, depression and negative emotions can build up in the body and manifest as physical problems. As it is a gentle therapy it can be used on pregnant mothers, babies and children too.


Reiki can help with physical pain and helps with insomnia too. Unfortunately due to our fast-paced lives today, the stress on our bodies can become too much and this is how people suffer 'burn-out.' Reiki Healing can help release emotional and mental stress to diminish 'burn-out.' 


Reiki healing can also be used on animals. People who do not live locally to Manchester, UK can benefit from distance healing.



Hypnotherapy is a non-invasive, complimentary therapy where I can locate the problems that are holding you back from enjoying your life to its true potential. The sub-conscious mind is more powerful than the conscious mind and hypnosis can access this part of you to help achieve your desired outcome.

Hypnotherapy can be used for: Anxiety, stress, depression, insomnia, hypnobirthing (to help towards a healthy pregnancy and birth), pregnancy preparation, pain management, weight-loss, smoking cessation, phobias. Hypnotherapy can also be used for motivation and confidence in attending interviews, public speaking and for exam stress.



Hypnobirthing encourages the mother to embrace pregnancy and birth as a time of confidence,  empowerment and relaxation. Working together we can create the most positive pregnancy and birth experience for you and baby, to give your baby the best start in life.


The Hypnobirthing package for 'mummies to be' will help to eliminate fear, reduce pain and promote relaxation. My aim is to provide a rewarding, positive birthing experience for the most precious time of your life. Being a mummy of three, with three natural births, I have sound experience. 


Within the package I also provide energy healing for both mother and baby to enhance relaxation and promote good-health for both. Due to its gentle nature, reiki energy healing is safe in pregnancy and for newborns too.



Pregnancy is such a special time in life but it can be worrying too. Bringing a newborn home is even more daunting. I’m a Psychotherapeutic counsellor specialising in pre-natal and post-natal mental health*. I offer courses of therapy sessions, but
I also offer drop-in sessions where mums can come and talk to me in a safe and friendly environment without continuous therapy.

We can work together to help eliminate anxieties to enable a more positive parenting experience. 

*Counselling is available for mums at any stage of their parenting journey.

About me

Emma Porcelli

It is of paramount importance that a client is comfortable and relaxed when they are with their therapist, so I will let you into my world a little first. I received a BA Hons Fashion Marketing and have spent the last 14 years in PR and Marketing. A couple of years ago you could say I had a ‘calling’ to help people. I went on to receive a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills, and also received qualifications in Reiki 1 and Reiki 2 Energy healing in 2016. I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, and Hypnobirthing Practitioner. People have asked me “What about your Marketing degree?” I thought about it and realised I am still marketing. I am marketing a brand called ‘Happiness.’ Everybody wants and needs happiness in their life.


The reason I am so passionate about Hypnotherapy and Energy healing is because I have studied intensively and seen the results. I do also believe we are here to be happy and have joy in our lives. Unfortunately due to deep-rooted issues and fears from childhood, we can be held back from the happiness we want and deserve in our lives.

I also offer a Hypnobirthing package for 'mummy's to be' preparing for the most precious time of your life. Hypnobirthing encourages the mother to embrace pregnancy and birth as a time of confidence, empowerment and relaxation. Let's make it a positive experience for you and baby, to give your baby the best start in life.
