This study examined school counsellors' reaction to the implementation of guidance services in secondary schools in Lagos state. Four hypotheses were formulated to guide this study. The descriptive survey research design was adopted. A researcher designed questionnaire was administered to 127 counsellors representing all the Local Education Districts in Lagos State. The demographic data of respondents were analyzed with simple percentages and frequency count tables while hypotheses formulated were tested using the one sample t-test statistical tool at 0.05 level of significance. The findings revealed that guidance and counselling services are available in Lagos state schools. Counsellors are also satisfied with their involvement in the implementation of the available counselling services in the school system. Recommendations include the urgent need to set up a career library, and be actively involved in organizing in-service training for staffs in the school system among others.
