About Us Counselling Sunshine Coast

Brad Everton – BPsych(Hons) MPsych – Counselling Sunshine Coast with 20 Years of Experience

Brad Everton Maroochydore psychologist - counselling Sunshine CoastI’ve been counselling Sunshine Coast locals and private clients worldwide as a registered psychologist for 20 years.  I am also an experienced Employer Assistance Program counsellor supporting the staff of medium to large organisations worldwide.

Prior to becoming a psychologist, I occupied various roles in different industries which I believe has given me greater insight as an EAP counsellor.  I believe my life experience is what allows me to quickly connect and understand your situation.

Synergy Mind Solutions (Psychology Practice in Maroochydore Sunshine Coast)

Over the last 11 years, we’ve managed and grown our private psychology practice on the Sunshine Coast. During this time, I’ve provided personal and workplace counselling to individuals and corporations. I have provided counselling services to EAP organisations, 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’ve also been sought out to assist large organisations who are undergoing restructures and closure.

Counselling Sunshine Coast Services We Provide:

Telephone Counselling Sunshine Coast

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 Maroochydore

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 Sunshine Coast

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 Maroochydore, Australia-Wide and Internationally

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 – Online and In Person Sunshine Coast

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. Our health and wellbeing workshops and parenting courses focus on performance enhancement and can be tailored to the needs of the individual and organisation.

Family Run Local Psychology Practice Maroochydore Sunshine Coast

As a small family-run psychology 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 counselling to Sunshine Coast locals, across Australia and even internationally.  Over the years we have built up our private psychology practice by providing mental health support, emotional regulation strategies, relationship coaching services, career counselling and guidance, and so much more.

Taking Guidance from our Psychology Clients

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 personal 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 health and 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.
