Experienced counsellors have mentioned that the client- counsellor relationship, which is of high importance in counselling, may be related to embodied synchrony of nonverbal behaviour, but there is little quantitative research on the topic. The present study captured the embodied synchrony of nonverbal behaviour in counselling from a multiple communication channel perspective, in order to examine the relationship between these channels. At the same time, the relation between embodied synchrony and the mental processes of the client or counsellor, such as the sense of trust between counsellor and client, was investigated. 9-24 participants rated visual and vocal embodied synchrony and sense of trust in role-playing school counselling scenes. The results indicated that embodied synchrony, such as body movement coordination, similarity of voice strength and coordination and smoothness of response timing, have a co- occurrence relation. Moreover, significant correlations with evaluated sense of trust suggested that embodied synchrony can act as an indicator reflecting the mental process of a client or counsellor.
