  • and so much more


Brad knows how to stay non-judgemental while providing you with solution-focussed counselling. Instead, he focusses on finding you strategies to get you the results you want.

That’s why so many couples find Brad’s style of relationship therapy so effective. Brad doesn’t take sides. He provides the space for both parties to share their concerns. Then, he helps everyone find a common ground. 

If it is individual counselling or life coaching, Brad helps you organise your thoughts. Then he guides you to find the decision that is right for you so you can move forward.

Why Choose Brad Everton – Psychologist Sunshine Coast

Brad Everton BPsych (Hons) MPsych – Highly-Trained Psychologist Sunshine Coast – Maroochydore

My life changed when a friend gave me a personal development book. This was where I realised my love for the power of the mind. Shortly after, a colleague shared how they were starting a psychology degree. And at that moment, my life changed direction. So, within 2 weeks…

  • I applied to James Cook University
  • James Cook University accepts my application, and
  • Moved from Brisbane to Townsville to study psychology

While working part-time, I completed a Bachelor of Psychology at James Cook University. And, through hard work and study, I was invited into the exclusive Honours program.

From there, my love of positive psychology moved me to Toowoomba to study Sports Psychology. That was where I got my Master of Psychology degree in 2005.

I continue to develop my skills by studying every day. And coupling this with my firsthand experiences as a parent, business owner, athlete, author, and speaker allows me to relate to people quickly and easily. I look forward to chatting with you soon. Read more here >>>
