There are various models and approaches to counselling and psychotherapy. Nevertheless, one of the most important tools a therapist has is themselves and a key factor in who they are is their psychological type. This study aimed to investigate the psychological type profile of Person-Centred counsellors. The psychological type of 85 counsellors (63 females, 22 males) was measured with the Francis Psychological Type Scales (FPTS). Results indicate that the FPTS can reliably measure psychological type among counsellors, and the most common psychological type was introvert, intuitive, feeling, and judging (INFJ). The relation of these psychological types with a Person-Centred approach is further discussed.
