Kairos Centre


The Soul Centred Psychotherapy (TM) training was developed by Dr Kaalii Cargill and Andrew Cargill in the early nineties.


Dr Kaalii Cargill has been working in the field of psychotherapy for forty years, with qualifications in social work, psychology, and clinical hypnotherapy. Her PhD was in the area of mindbody healing.

A particular area of interest involves the feminine mysteries of other traditions and the adaptation of initiation rituals to personal therapy. Her book Don't Take It Lying Down: Life According to the Goddess is available from Amazon.


The training course and mentoring program are a natural extension of her belief that therapy is not about fixing something that is supposedly broken, but rather about teaching people to attend to the rich language of soul.

Kaalii is past President of SCAPE (Society of Counselling and Psychotherapy Educators) and ISOCSS (International Society of Clinical and Counselling Supervisors), and past Vice-President of PACFA (Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia). As well as working in private practice for 40 years, she has also worked in training delivery as a social science tutor in the private school system and as a tutor in tertiary education.



Andrew Cargill [1951-2016] began exploring the human experience through Eastern spiritual practice in the seventies and worked as a psychotherapist for 35 years. A recognition of the importance of embodiment in inner work led him away from spirit-based approaches to body-centred therapies. He recognised the centrality of the feminine principle in personal and collective healing, and especially sponsored the task of contemporary males in reconnecting with soul.  The approach of energy medicine to mindbody healing and resolution of trauma was an integral part of his work and is a core component of the training program.
