Abstract—Character education is also an important thing to be developed by school counsellors. The humility is one of necessary character that based others virtue. The student’s problems who have low humility tend to have difficulty accepting criticism/information from others, arrogance, sadism, selfishness, and bullying behavior. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the learning system used the internet, including counselling services. This study aims to test an effective approach in increasing the character of humility between mindfulness-based cognitive or solution-focused approach. The group counseling design used is the synchronous for the counselling process and asynchronous to complete the worksheet. This experimental study involved 24 students in each group of 8 students aged 14-17 years. This participant of research is limited. The scale used to measure humility is Elliot's theory of adaptation which is designed using a Likert-scale. There are four aspects, namely openness, self-forgetfulness, accurate self-assessment, and focus on other things with a total of 32 items. The reliability humility scale is 0.901, and CAMM α = 0.790. These results indicate no significant difference in MBCT-SFBT in increasing humility, whereas MBCT-control & SFBT-control have a significant difference. That is, the mindfulness group had an increase in the mean between pretest-posttest and follow-up. This study found that character enhancement can use mindfulness-based cognitive and solution-focused approach. Both of them have the characteristics of character strengths and applicable by school counsellors. This study has few subjects so that the research subjects in further research are to increase the number of studies and make online and non-online comparisons.
