Synergy Mind Solutions Psychology Sunshine Coast

About Us

Brad Everton – BPsych(Hons) MPsych – Principal Maroochydore Psychologist with 20 Years Experience

I have been a registered psychologist for 20 years with my own private practice on the Sunshine Coast for 9 years.  I am also an experienced Employer Assistance Program counsellor.

Prior to becoming a psychologist, I occupied various roles in different industries which I believe has given me greater insight as an EAP counsellor. As a psychologist I have worked in several sectors including the provision of counselling for mental health issues, career counselling and transition to students and staff at a tertiary institution. I have run career preparation workshops for graduating students. I have counselled elite athletes preparing for the Olympic Games and World Championships. I have developed and facilitated anger management programs for teenagers and worked with people with disabilities. I have also developed a life skills program for people dealing with hardship and ran it through the local community centre as a government-funded project.

I have also held management positions with the most notable managing a team of 42 collegiate staff at a university and being accountable for 400 university students living on-campus.

Over the last 9 years I have managed my private practice. During this time I have provided personal and workplace counselling to individuals and corporations. I have provided services to EAP organizations, General Practitioners, Work Cover and private clients. These types of services include face to face counselling, telephone counselling, on site counselling and executive coaching/support to managers. I have also been sought out to assist large organizations who are undergoing restructures and closure.
Below are some of the areas that I specialise including:

Telephone Counselling

The benefit of telephone counselling is the service can be provided to people all around the country. With the telephone counselling I can often provide after hour telephone counselling to people in other states that prefer to make appointments after work.

Face to Face Counselling

Our private practice has been open on the Sunshine Coast for the last 9 years. The counselling office has a positive, light and airy outlook and allows clients to feel calm and relaxed while they are here.

Critical Incidents and Onsite Counselling

Over the last 5 years, I have increasingly provided support to organisations when the situation calls for a counsellor to be onsite for group, one-on-one services or for complex issues that require sensitive and immediate attention. Some examples include announcements of redundancies, ongoing maintenance leading up to and including organisational closure, major media releases that impact staff morale and uncertainty, attempted or successful suicide, bushfire recovery, etc.

Manager Support and Executive Coaching

Providing the tools and strategies that should be taught and mentored (but aren’t) that have been gathered from continuous training, multiple courses, management experience while at the University of Southern Queensland and providing support and coaching to managers and executives through Employee Assistance Programs.

Training Workshops

Chet Holmes said:

“If you don’t train, you force everyone to be reactive, so your chances for survival decrease dramatically”.

I train daily for at least two hours a day to ensure that the training I provide to clients and organisations is current, useful and effective. Workshops focus on performance enhancement and can be tailored to the needs of the organisation.

Family Run Local Business Supporting Sunshine Coast and Beyond for 9 Years

As a small family run business, we aim to provide a high level of service, personalised support and transformational results.

We are a husband and wife team – Brad is a registered psychologist and Monique is a Registered Nurse.

Since 2011, we have been working together to provide support to people locally, across Australia and even internationally.  Over the years we have built up our private practice by providing mental health support, emotional regulation strategies, relationship coaching services, career counselling and guidance, and so much more.

Around 4 years ago, we listened to our clients and went to work on creating a resource for parents to help them with the (sometimes challenging) task of raising children – we wrote and published a parenting manual called, “On Track Parenting – The Missing Manual That Should Have Come With Your Child.”  Then, just as our book was being released, our second child decided to come along after 11 years (we thought we were done!), we moved our older son schools, and moved homes and still managed to provide our clients with the support they needed.

Needless to say, we employed all our coping skills and strategies to stay positive and keep moving forward during all those stressful situations (in other words, we like to practise what we preach as much as humanly possible).

In the last 2 years, we have provided dozens of parenting and professional development workshops across the Sunshine Coast.  We soon noticed how many people were struggling (especially once COVID19 hit us all), so we developed a holistic wellbeing program that teaches you how to integrate self-care effectively into your life and offer it as an online wellbeing course on a monthly basis.

Again, feel free to contact us on 0458360666 if you would like further information or to book an appointment to move forward with your life.
