This study aimed to determine the effect of spiritually informed cognitive behavioral therapy (SICBT) group counseling on the psychological well-being of Grade 12 students. It utilized the pretest-posttest control group experimental design. The Flourishing Scale (FS) was used to measure psychological well-being. Two hundred sixty-six Grade 12 students were administered the pretest. Students who met the eligibility criteria were randomly assigned to the experimental group and the control group, with 10 participants and nine participants, respectively. The intervention was a six-session SICBT group counseling. The results of the study revealed that there was a significant difference in the psychological well-being of the experimental group and the control group after the intervention.
