This study examines the therapeutic effect of peace counselling among Nigerian secondary school teachers. 450 Nigerian secondary school teachers voluntarily participated in this study; 225 teachers (103 male and122 female) were used as control group while 225 teachers (103 male and 122 female) were exposed to peace counselling. Those in the treatment group participated in smaller groups made up of 25 teachers each. The teachers 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 existed between the control and the treatment groups with the latter ascertaining a higher degree of peace than the former. Also a significant difference was recorded between the male and female teachers who were exposed to peace counselling in their expressed peace level. Implications for peace counselling among all teachers functioning at all levels of education and their students were discussed.
