The study mainly focused on the teachers in charge of guidance and counselling in secondary schools. A descriptive survey research method and purposive sampling were used. Data was collected using questionnaires to probe the issues under the study. The research data was thematically analysed. The study revealed that guidance and counselling departments are ineffective in enhancing school discipline, guidance and counselling teachers are inadequately trained, motivated and faced with many challenges such as lack of facilities and financial support by school administration, conflict with school discipline policy and lack of clear government policies to guide guidance and counselling services in secondary schools. The respondents felt a great need to undergo in-service training on counselling and school discipline to make them effective.
