Abstract: This research study attempts to find out if there is a relationship between personality and the selection of counselling orientations for the Singaporean social workers and counsellors. It also examines whether the selection of counselling orientations of the sample group are influenced by their demographic variables such as, age, gender, highest academic qualification received, job designation, number of years of working experience, race, type of degree/diploma and country of degree/diploma. As a result of this study, there are several implications. Firstly, it is suggested that more formalised training programmes be organised to equip the local social workers and counsellors with the necessary knowledge and skills to conduct family therapy competently. Secondly, it is suggested that the local social workers and counsellors should develop their skills in those counselling orientations that fit their personalities. This is because they might feel less stressful and more comfortable in applying these orientations in their therapeutic practice. Thirdly, with the growing popularity of the eclecticism movement, it is suggested that the local social workers and counsellors be armed with a repertoire of skills so that they can apply the appropriate counselling approach in accordance to the needs and circumstances of the client or setting.
