The study was conducted to ascertain ways of improving Guidance and Counselling services in Holy Child College of Education, Takoradi. Four research questions were formulated to direct the research which focused on the physical and human resources available for Guidance and Counselling in the College, types of Guidance Services provided, views on impact of guidance and counselling services and finally strategies for improving guidance and counselling services in the college. The systematic sampling technique was used to sample out students for information, whiles the purposive and simple random sampling techniques were used to select staff members. Out of a population of 370 students, and 38 teachers, a sample of 80 students and 20 teachers were administered with questionnaires to describe the state of affairs of guidance and counselling in the College. In the Holy Child College of Education in Takoradi, quite a number of students exhibit an unstable disposition and are also not able to make rational decisions in their academic and social pursuits. These students seem to have little or no study skill or motivation towards learning in the college.
