Counselors are expected to be physically and emotionally ready to assist their counselees. Because of these expectations, counselors are affected by the emotional demands of the profession. The current study focused on the current state of school counselors in a private institution. The participants are fourteen female counselors from the elementary to the tertiary level. To have an understanding of their experiences, the researcher made use of the Counselor Burnout Inventory and Self-Compassion Scale. Follow-up interviews were also conducted. Overall, the results showed that the school counselors have low levels of burnout and high levels of self-compassion. However, there are select participants who may be experiencing burnout and are not practicing self-compassion. Correlations show no significant relationship between burnout and self-compassion. Based on the findings, implications and recommendations were discussed.
