Guidance and Counselling are not synonymous terms. Counselling is a part of guidance, not all of it. G.E. Smith writes, "The concept of counselling as a group of services which make up the guidance programme is generally accepted". Similarly, the two terms, counselling and interview, are not interchangeable. Interview is a face-to-face discussion between the counsellor and the counselee. Counselling can be given through correspondence and the telephone conversations. Counselling is a wider term which includes interview as one of its techniques.
