The study investigated gender preference of senior secondary students in their choice of receiving counseling in senior secondary schools in Ekiti State. Two research questions were raised and one research hypothesis was formulated to guide the study. A descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. The population of the study consisted of all senior secondary schools students. Two hundred respondents were sampled using simple random sampling techniques. A structured questionnaire titled: Gender Preference Counseling Questionnaire (GPCQ) was used to collect data. The questionnaire contained sections A and B. Section A dealt with bio- data of the respondents while section B dealt with items on gender preference of senior secondary students in their choice of receiving Counseling. The instrument was validated in order to ensure face and content validity. Test re-test reliability was done to ensure the consistency of the instrument. The instrument was administered twice to 20 respondents outside the sample. The two sets of data collected with the instrument were analyzed using Pearson Product Moment Correlation Co-Efficient (PPMCC). 0.075 correlation co-efficient was gotten which was high enough to determine the reliability of the instrument. In analyzing the data, frequency counts, percentages, mean scores and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions while t-test was used to test the hypothesis at 0.05 level of significance. For decision making, 2.50 and above was accepted while below 2.50 was rejected. The results of the study indicated that many students prefer female counselors to male counselors. Based on this, it was recommended that schools should make provision for and avail trained counselors.
