About Us

Outside the Square Psychology is a fee-for-service private psychology practice founded by Principal psychologist Kirsty Kerr in 2009, following four years in solo private practice. From our second floor location in Toorak Road, Camberwell, the practice grew and relocated to Banksia Street Burwood in 2013. The practice further expanded to include outreach services to country Victoria, with sessions beginning in Traralgon from 2012. In 2017 Outside the Square Psychology and Counselling Traralgon moved to the current premises in Deakin Street. The practice currently employs fifteen staff across the two locations.

Our Services

Outside the Square Psychology is a fee-for-service private psychology practice working with neuroptypical and neuro-diverse children, adolescents and young adults, and offers assessment, diagnosis and ongoing counselling support, behaviour intervention, and parent support. Across COVID-19 we introduced telehealth support, and will continue this into the future. This provides a convenient way to reduce travel time and costs, and also enables children to have sessions at school to minimise the time taken out of learning to be transported to and from appointments.

How can a psychologist help?

The word ‘Psychology’ means ‘Knowledge of the Mind’. Our psychologists are particularly concerned with developmental and educational psychology. That is, the
knowledge of typical childhood development, and how individuals think, learn and make sense of their world. We recognise that individuals with a diagnosis of a developmental, social, or behavioural disorder think and learn differently, and we have expertise in techniques to increase their skills.
