This research attempts to develop a personal theory of career and guidance counseling. In order to effectively accomplish this task, the writer feels that it is important to consider a review of pertinent career/vocational and career guidance counseling theories that have shaped the development of this field in recent years. The paper notes that through a comprehensive review of these theories, it will then be possible to integrate theory to provide a more integral understanding of one's personal orientation towards the practice. The paper reports that a critical review of theories that can be employed in this field will elucidate the wide scope of methods that are available for professional development. The paper concludes that if changes in practice are needed, a clear understanding of theory will provide a solid basis for decision making in this area.
