This study examined the psychometric properties of the Emotional Intelligence Scale (SEIS) (Schutte et al., 1998) in a sample of non-professional counsellors in South Africa. The counsellors (N = 172) were employed within various counselling services, rehabilitation services, and trauma centres. The analysis reflected the factorial solution and internal consistency of the SEIS. The results indicated a two-factor solution for the SEIS (Emotion Appraisal and Emotion Utilisation). Both of the subscales showed moderately high internal consistency reliability indices.
