Counseling may be broadly and simply defined as the process of helping individuals cope with certain kinds of personal problems. The term "guidance" has long been used in the field of personal services to students below the college level. Counseling is, in an extended sense, one of the oldest of human relationships: from time immemorial individuals have talked over their personal concerns with acquaintances, friends, and relatives. As a professional or semi-professional service, however, counseling came into view during the first decade of the twentieth century.
