Abstract

The aim of the present study is to investigate the role of counselling self-efficacy, trait anxiety and trait hope in life satisfaction of novice counsellor supervisees. The sample group consisted of 360 female, 199 male and 11 undergraduate counsellors who were unwilling to report gender. Data collection tools included the Personal Information Form, the CASES, the STAI-T, The Hope Scale and the SWLS. A hypothetical structural model was developed and tested for the fit to the data. According to research findings, counselling self-efficacy was found to have a significant indirect effect on life satisfaction through trait anxiety and trait hope. Trait anxiety and trait hope were concluded to have direct effects on life satisfaction of novice counsellor supervisees.
