This study set out to investigate the relationship between counselling within and outside the school setting in Ogun East Senatorial District of Ogun State. One hundred questionnaires were administered and the responses obtained were subjected to statistical analysis. The study found out that people access counselling services for help to choose a career, spouse, to get out of a bad habit, settle marital problems and correct addictive behaviours, among others. The study also found that there is no difference in the perception of in and out of school counsellors on the efficiency of counselling services provided in each case, and that counselling services in-school and out-of-school are relevant to the counselling needs of counselees. Given the findings of the study, it is recommended that efforts should be made by all stakeholders to strengthen the capacity of counsellors to meet the daily challenges of clients in school and out of school setting.
