In this study the relationship between the happiness levels of the preservice counselors and the forgiveness of the self, others and situations and resilience was examined. The participants of the study consisted of 311 senior year guidance and psychological counseling students attending public universities in six different provinces.  The preservice counselors were selected using convenience sampling. Of the 311 students, 227 (73%) were female and 84 (27%) were male. The age of the students ranged from 19 to 34 and the average was 21.70 (S.D: 1.37). Data collected using Personal Information Form, Subjective Happiness Scale, Heartland Forgiveness Scale and Ego-resilience Scale. Pearson correlation analysis and hierarchical regression analysis were used for processing. The most significant predictors of happiness scores were forgiveness of the self, resilience, forgiveness of the situation and gender, respectively. The findings of the study indicated that when the gender and age of the participants were controlled, the preservice counselors with high levels of forgiveness of the self, the situation and resilience were reported to have high levels of happiness.  The result of the study were considered to be significant for the future studies to improve the affective skills during psychological counselors’ training.
