Guidance and counseling programs have been implemented in Kenyan secondary schools to help students improve their personal, social, and academic skills. The success of these programs, however, has been questioned due to a paucity of studies attempting to clarify this idea, a problem that this study discussed. The aim of this study was to look at the current state and challenges of guidance and counseling. The study's aim was to ascertain the types of services available for implementing guidance and counseling programs, as well as the most common cases of indiscipline among secondary school students. Noise making, theft, property damage, and truancy were found to be the most common forms of indiscipline in schools, the findings showed that, the schools under investigation have a long way to go in terms of maintaining disciplinary management by supervision and counseling. This research recommends that, schools can first invite parents, churches, other supporters, and the surrounding community to endorse guidance and counseling programs for students' social adjustment. Secondly, the Ministry of Education should reinforce guidance and counselling units in the implementation of the program in schools by requiring all teacher counsellors who do not have basic guidance and counselling training to attend mandatory in-service training. Finally, the Ministry of Education should make peer counseling training more accessible so that advice and support can be provided.
