Guidance is giving leadership, supervision, direction, or professional guidance for future actions.

Counseling is not giving opinion, instruction or advice, it is using facilitative listening and questioning to allow the client to choose the best solution for a problem. Counseling is based on a wellness model rather than a medical model; authors such as Hershenson and Strein (1991); and Palmo, Shosh and Weikel (2001) emphasized that counselors are concerned about the client's environment with a more global view than other professionals as well as a concern that goes beyond treating dysfunction or pathology and dealing with the clients' self-awareness, personal growth, and wellness.
guidance tells you what to do when your upset, and counseling helps you with your problems.

Most people think guidance and counseling are interchangeable but there is a subtle difference between the two. Basically guidance has a broader scope and more comprehensive while counseling is in-depth.

The difference between guidance and counseling is, guidance people gives you advice and tell you to do your best. Counselors, they listen to your problems that are happening at home and school. After you tell the Counselors your problems, they will help you to solve them. That's the difference between guidance and counseling.

There is not a much difference between guidance and counseling. Both the terms are associated with grooming the individuals for future planning. In guidance you give direct direction to the person. On the other hand, in counseling different directions are given independently.
