In the process of psychological counseling, verbal communication is the most common way. However, when there are obstacles in speech communication, the important information of visitors may unconsciously manifest themselves through a series of nonverbal actions such as micro-expressions and body movements. Therefore, it is very important for consultants to master relevant knowledge of non-verbal behavior and apply them in the process of psychological counseling. The study found that the analysis of facial expressions, body movements, and sound characteristics in non-verbal behaviors not only facilitates the smooth progress of the consultation process, but also helps the consultants find the visitors' implicit information. This paper analyzes the application of non-verbal behavior in psychological counseling and explores its research value. It aims to help consultants to better conduct psychological counseling work so as to achieve the best counseling effect.
