Your Kaleidoscope team

Anne Kaye is the Founder and Director of Kaleidoscope Colour Therapy – Established in 2002.  In 2017, following her retirement from teaching and after many years of helping hundreds of children and young people grow in confidence and sell-esteem (both through her 7-Step Therapy and as a Headteacher) Anne has decided to wholly focus on growing her highly effective programme and is supported by her 2018 Kaleidoscope Team.

Together they hope to help ensure Kaleidoscope’s continued growth and success, each one, sharing the ambition that a new generation of children, young people, educators and parents can also experience and enjoy the benefits of this highly-effective therapeutic approach to improving one’s sense of self-worth.
