A pilot study was designed to assess the correlations between client perceived counselor competence, working alliance, client satisfaction, and spiritual well-being as experienced by students at a medium-sized public university in the southeastern United States. Surveys were administered to and subsequently completed by students enrolled in an actual counselor/client training graduate-level class. Pearson bivariate two-tailed analyses were then conducted in SPSS. The resulting data was examined for correlations between the variables. The study failed to indicate any correlations between the data. Suggestions for further evaluation and study of the variables were explored in regards to their effect on the counseling process.
