Welcome to Kaleidoscope Therapy
Kaleidoscope Therapy is a non-intrusive, therapeutic programme to help support good mental health in children and young people in schools, home or the workplace.
Using colour, light, sound and natural aroma, Kaleidoscope Therapy helps people build their self-esteem and confidence. This can lead to effective personal growth which can aid learning and improve productivity.
Training is available for school and college staff in primary or secondary education. Kaleidoscope Therapy training is also available for parents who have a positive attitude towards mental health and a genuine love of children and young people.
Kaleidoscope Therapy was highlighted as an example of good practice by The Royal College of Psychiatrists, Young Minds and the Children’s Young people’s Mental Health Coalition. Click here to read about our accreditations.

“Young people have the opportunity to control anxiety, practise mindfulness, heighten self-awareness, experience tranquility, change their mindsets and negative habits and develop positive belief systems.”
“Our identity and our storyline is created by what we repeat. This becomes what we believe…so if we repeat the same habits and respond in the same way to triggers, then we will continue to believe we can’t change.”
“Kaleidoscope Colour Therapy tackles that niggling fear of failure, that lack of confidence and that inability to thrive.”

Years of positive reviews from teachers and parents
Thank you so much for making me think and revaluate lots of things. Kaleidoscope started as a course and became so much more. It has been a delight!.Deputy Head
Kaleidoscope makes such a difference………You have to actually experience the difference with the children.Deputy Head
I can honestly say that Anne’s days of Kaleidoscope training were up there with the best that I have experienced during my teaching career.
Anne is an excellent trainer. Her active research and years spent developing and sharing the programme means that the course is delivered with passion, enthusiasm and clarity. Her genuine desire is to help schools to support their pupils’ emotional well being. She wants to make a difference and for young people to experience the positive impact that Kaleidoscope can have.
As a school, we also have noticed an improvement in the behaviour of pupils and an increase in their confidence; They are much more willing to take part in class and have a go. For one child, the sessions have had an enormous impact not only on the child but on the whole family. Her anxiety meant that she was struggling to cope with a situation at home, sessions were planned in for her and her behaviour transformed.
Having run Kaleidoscope sessions for a year, we are excited to embark upon the next steps on our Kaleidoscope journey with Anne. In the coming year we are looking forward to our Enrichment Sessions and Training which will enable us to work with parents. I cannot recommend Anne and her Kaleidoscope programme highly enough.Head Teacher
