Abstract

Many Filipino counselors do not directly claim a specific counseling orientation. A lot of them emphasize micro-skills in helping or random use of various counseling approaches. The present study interviewed eight registered counselors with more than ten years of counseling experience and with doctorate degrees in counseling. The present study aimed to establish a model of the influences and processes that are involved in counseling orientation development. It employed content analysis, with audio-taped in-depth interview as the primary source of data collection. Results showed an interaction between1) personal and 2) professional processes. These two major domains with four factors each influence counselors in developing a workable counseling orientation. Implications for personal satisfaction and professional practice were discussed.
