Over the last few decades, counselling has emerged as a specialized field throughout the world and have generated a great amount of attention from parents, teachers, social workers and other stakeholders who have devoted time to explore its utility for the general population, particularly school going children. The period when the child is in school is most crucial and critical for the development of all his/her potentialities and capacities. It is during this period that abilities and skills are developing, habits, interests and attitudes are being formed and emotional and social adjustments are taking place. As the child grows, the environment in which he/she is living throws variety of problems of personal-social nature, which, if unsolved, may result in psychological disturbances of various types. This will hinder his/her natural growth. Counselling which is both adjustment and curative in nature is necessary to meet the developmental and adjustment needs of children. Descriptive survey method was used as a research design for the study. The target population of the study were the counsellors overlooking different public schools of Haryana state in India. A sample of 28 counsellors were randomly selected out of 22 districts of Haryana. This research paper highlights the need for counselling and the various aspects associated with it.

Keywords: Counselling Services, Referrals, Information Taking, Self-reliance, Records.
