This study, which examines the opinions of the psychological counselors about the subspecialty areas of
psychological counseling and guidance services, is a descriptive research based on qualitative research approach.
The study group consists of 10 psychological counselors (5 females and 5 males) working at different levels of
teaching and working at different professional levels. At the end of the study, it has been found out that the answers
given by the participants about the subspecialty areas of psychological counseling and guidance are “family
counseling”, “crisis intervention counseling”, “school counseling”, “rehabilitation counseling” and “career
counseling”. It was concluded that they found “family counseling” to be more important than the other subspecialty
areas; but they found themselves more adequate in “school counseling”. The majority of the participants stated that
they were able to develop and support themselves in order to increase their competences in the subspecialty areas.
