The study examines the relationship between clients' spiritual well-being and their satisfaction with life and with the counselling service. A probability sample of participants (N = 58) undergoing treatment was used in this survey design correlational study. Three questionnaires (Spiritual Well-Being Scale, Satisfaction with Life Scale and Client Satisfaction Questionnaire) were employed. A significant relationship was found between clients' spiritual well-being and life satisfaction (Pearson's r = 0.54, p < 0.001; 2-tailed). A non-significant relationship was established between clients' spiritual well-being and service satisfaction (Spearman's rho = 0.21, p> 0.05; 2-tailed) and between clients' life satisfaction and service satisfaction (Spearman's rho = 0.19, p > 0.05; 2-tailed). The study concludes that spirituality is an important dimension in well-being but it does not correlate with satisfaction with services.
