This thesis was designed to set up a short-term counselling programme in an institutional setting and to evaluate the results of that programme. It was hoped that the evaluation of counselling programme in this kind of setting might have lead to the establishment of a permanent counselling programma designed to meet the needs of the population involved. -- This research was also designed to assess the results of counselling by using multiple measurement criteria which might have been able to measure more variables of change ani thus yield more accurate indications of change through counselling. -- On the basis of the review of the literature, it was proposed that those persons who were more adjusted, also held a higher achievement level than those who were not as well adjusted. It was also noted that counselling could produce both positive and negative changes and therefore the study was designed to take this into account. -- Two groups were counselled with differing methods of counselling, while one group acted as a control. The groups were pre and post tested with the Bell Adjustm.ent Inventory, the Mooney Problem Check List, their grade point averages, and a rating scale administered to the teachers involved. The data were collated and evaluated. -- Generally the results yielded no significant differences between any of the groups at the end of the counselling programme. Recommendations and suggestions for further research were made.
