Counselling psychologists in eight countries (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa,
South Korea, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States) responded to survey questions
that focused on their demographics as well as their professional identities, roles, settings and
activities. As well, they were asked about satisfaction with the specialty and the extent to which
they endorsed 10 core counselling psychology values. This article reports those results, focusing
both on areas in which there were between-country similarities as well as on those for which
there were differences. These data provide is a snapshot of counselling psychology globally and
establish a foundation for the other articles in this special issue of the journal.
