Soul CentredTM Psychotherapy is a therapeutic approach that developed organically from the experience and research of practising psychotherapists. The Kairos Centre was formed in 1992 to provide sacred space for the development of Soul CentredTM Psychotherapy. The name Kairos is from the ancient Greek, meaning the necessary and appropriate timing of a happening: the soul's time rather than Kronos or linear clock time.

The vision of the Kairos Centre has been to sponsor the development of a Soul Centred therapeutic community. This has its basis in a comprehensive, in-depth training that draws from clinical practice and current research, with ongoing professional development and supervision for therapists. Graduates of the 4 year Diploma of Soul Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy are eligible for full membership of the Association of Soul Centred Psychotherapists Inc. (ASCP). ASCP Inc. is a constituent member Association of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia Inc. (PACFA).
