This study determines the effectiveness of counselling in the SHS in Accra
Metropolis of Ghana, with focus on the effectiveness of Guidance and Counselling
in our SHSs. This exploratory study adopted a descriptive cross-sectional design.
The researcher purposively sampled 101 students from ten schools within the Accra
Metropolitan area. Data collected by means of a questionnaire, survey and chisquare and phi-square were used to analyse the data. The study revealed that
students were of the perception that counsellors were effective in their Guidance
and Counselling roles as against their coordinating and advocacy roles. Also some
perceptions of students could discourage them from seeking counselling and these
included the perceptions that counselling was for delinquents.
The following recommendations were made based on the findings of the study:
counsellors are advised to maintain mutual respect and trust between themselves
and their students-clients during counselling. Also, students are advised to advocate
for their concerns including keeping their issues expressed during counselling
strictly confidential and independent of disciplinary action through their
counsellors. These and other findings have been discussed in the main text, together
