This study aimed to determine the level of the counselling skills among educational counselors in public schools of Tulkarm governorate, and their differences according to some qualitative variables. The study used the descriptive approach and applied a counseling skills questionnaire to the sample of the study. The survey was distributed to 79 male and female counselors. There were 60 questionnaires, which represent 75.90% of the entire sample that were completed and returned. The results showed that the overall degree of the level of the educational counselors’ skills was high (85.55%), where the professional and personal skills had the highest percentage (92.50%), while the skills of applying scales and tests had the lowest percentage (52.77%). On one hand, the study showed statistically significant differences in the level of counseling skills among the educational counselors in favor of females. On the other hand, these differences were not significant regarding qualifications, years of experience, and specialization variables. The researchers recommend organizing sustainable training programs, especially in the field of application and testing skills to reflect these skills on their work with their students.
