Pandas Creating Bright Futures

InvestFife news

July 5, 2021

FIFE Business woman, Michelle Mair, is creating a brighter future for children, parents and schools through her innovative mental health support businesses.

Michelle is the creator and founder of Peaceful Pandas, a totally unique programme which teaches young children how to practice mindfulness and positive wellbeing strategies through story books, online activities and a school or home resource kit.

Peaceful Pandas runs alongside sister company ‘The Child Whisperer’, a popular platform which has evolved from Michelle’s successful ‘Bright Future’ enterprise, providing online and in-person services including mental health support packages for older children, parents and schools. It offers learning courses, training sessions, resources and unique in-person therapy based on coaching, counselling, nurture and mindfulness techniques.

Based in Kelty, Michelle has spent over 16 years at the forefront of education as a teacher and education consultant, being awarded ‘Scottish Teacher of the Year’ in 2010. Over the course of her career she saw a significant gap in the provision of mental health support within education and she knew her skills, expertise and innovation would be of major benefit to children, schools and families. In 2016 her businesses were born.

Michelle received Expert Help and discretionary funding support through Business Gateway Fife business adviser, Allison McKenzie.

Michelle commented: “I created my businesses to support and improve the mental health of children and the adults who care for them. In what has been a very difficult time for us all, nurturing our mental health couldn’t be more important. Children, school staff and families have faced real challenge during the pandemic. We are here to help.

“Peaceful Pandas’ is a one-stop shop for mindfulness and wellbeing providing everything needed for wellbeing to become part of the curriculum and part of family life for young children – giving them the headstart they need for positive mental health. Through ‘The Child Whisperer’ we’re also able to give older children the support they really need and offer in-person therapy too. Both businesses offer high quality resources, sector-leading training, tutoring for parents and community programmes. We also have story and activity books, linked merchandise and resource kits.

“I’m blown away by how well the businesses have been received and over the moon to see so many children benefiting from our programmes, with our packages now being used in Fife, Scotland, the UK, Scandinavia and even further afield! For me, helping as many children as we can is what it’s all about.”

She added: “I am very grateful for Allison’s advice and support during a very challenging time for businesses. The Expert Help I received as a result has been outstanding, allowing me not only to sustain the businesses, but to develop and grow too.”
