A not-for-profit business aimed specifically at helping young people from low income families suffering from mental health issues, is focused on expansion.
Ann Varney, who launched The Children’s Meditation Hypnotherapy Centre (CMH Centre) in Kirkcaldy last year, believes that there is an epidemic on the horizon, as more and more young people are suffering from anxiety.
The CMH Centre aims to empower children and their families to develop effective approaches to help them overcome mental health issues by offering low cost one- to-one sessions, which utilise a range of self-healing techniques (hypnotherapy, meditation and energy healing), coping mechanisms, evidence based educational resources, as well as online programmes.
Ann has helped hundreds of children turn their lives around, and she wants to grow her business so she can help even more. The online programmes, which Ann developed with a little help from Business Gateway Fife’s Digital Boost programme, are being rolled out on a bigger scale, to reach more young people, whilst she’s seeking to create a dedicated ‘home from home’ facility and employ consultants to meet demand.
Ann Varney said: “An epidemic is brewing as more and more children present signs of anxiety. I am keen to reach as many of those children as I can through the online portal, whilst also support parents through hypnotherapy and courses.”
