Facts & Questions

What is the difference between a psychologist and a counsellor?

A psychologist can complete assessments for presenting conditions, however a counsellor cannot. Psychologists study mental health conditions and neurodiversity with an emphasis on research methods and continuing to develop evidence based practice in the field pf psychology. Some psychologists provide ongoing treatment for their clients following assessment, however often once a diagnosis has been received or an assessment has been completed, a psychologist will often refer a client to a counsellor to complete therapy, or continue seeing the client in conjunction with the support of a counsellor.

Counsellors work with clients on their treatment approach, some counsellors are talk therapists only, and some have undertaken study in psychotherapy. Counsellors tend to work with clients on approaches to treatment which suit the client's lifestyle and preferences. Counselling isn't regulated in Australia, so anyone can call themselves a counsellor. When selecting your counsellor, please take into account their qualifications, studies and field of interest to ensue a good match with your presenting concern. 

Why don't you have a waiting list?

As a new business opened in 2021, Kid Centric has only just recently started advertising, so we have spaces available immediately. Given there is a high demand for children's behavioural and counselling sessions at present, please book in early to avoid disappointment. 

Kid Centric keeps emergency appointments each week for clients with immediate concerns - please let us know when booking if you would like to check availability for emergency appointments. 

Do you offer animal assisted therapy?

Not yet, but we hope to offer this in the future!

Does it cost more for Kid Centric to come to us?

No. Kid Centric currently offers in home consultations as we are still searching for our dream office space. We don't charge for travel time, and our costs are consistent for NDIS and non-NDIS clients.
