Peacemaker Psychology offers therapy and workplace services that promote peace within ourselves and with others. Our mission is to help people positively engage with themselves and those around them through a service which values compassion, care, and competence. Currently we offer therapy services and workplace learning and development.
The crane has been a symbol of longevity and loyalty in both China and Japan for centuries. Sometimes referred to as 'the bird of happiness', the crane has became known in the west as a symbol of peace, hope, and healing. The symbolism of the peace crane aligns with our mission, to help you find peace within and with others.
Peacemaker Psychology offers online and mobile services. This means we come to you! Either through your device via video call, or in-person to your door, support has never been so convenient, easy to access, and affordable.
Telehealth refers to health services received via video or telephone call. Video call is the preferred option because we can see each other. As long as you have the Internet and a device (smart phone, tablet, laptop, PC) you can access therapy no matter where you are, using our secure telehealth technology.
We can deliver therapy at your home or care facility on Bribie Island, Queensland and surrounding areas. To be eligible for Medicare rebates, it needs to be beneficial to the client to receive mobile therapy. For example, if a person's mental disorder prevents them from leaving home, physical mobility is limited, or they are in an aged care facility.
We provide early intervention counselling to support employees at risk of psychological injury, and general counselling as part of employee assistance programs. We also have approval to support workers compensation clients in Queensland, NSW, and Victoria.
We tailor learning and development solutions (e.g. workshops, webinars, coaching) to suit your organisation and budget. The broad focus areas of our interventions are (1) conflict and relationships at work, and (2) wellbeing at work. These areas include a wide range of topics relevant to the performance of your organisation. Our solutions can be designed for specific audiences such as individuals, teams, or managers. Service delivery is available online or in-person services can be provided in the north Brisbane and Sunshine Coast regions.
”Peacemaker Psychology is a culmination of more than 20 years of professional and personal growth. I have learned, sometimes the hard way, no matter who you are, relationship is fundamental to your being. Your relationship with yourself, and your relationships with others, can at their worst, bring you to your knees; and at their best, raise you to heights you never dreamed of. I want to help people find peace within and with others.” Belinda Stocks
