This study examined Peace Counselling impact among Primary School Teachers in Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria. A total of 110 Primary School Teachers voluntarily participated in this study. 55 Teachers (20 male and 35 female Teachers) were exposed to Peace Counselling while 55 (20 male and 35 female Teachers) were used as control group. The participants in the control group were also given Peace Counselling after the completion of the study. Two research questions were raised to guide the direction of the study. Teaching related Element of Peace Disturbance Scale (TEPDS) was used as the research instrument to collect pre‐ and post treatment data. Analysis of covariance was employed in the data analysis. The results showed that a significant difference between the treatment groups and the control group as the participants in the treatment group who went through Peace Counselling recorded a higher degree of peace than those used as control. Also a significant difference was recorded between the female and the Primary School Teachers who were exposed to Peace Counselling in their recorded peace level. Implications for Peace Counselling among Primary School Teachers were discussed.
