Abstract: The research focused on understanding the awareness of counselling in the adults working in the corporate sector. Attitudes of the self and those of colleagues and the family towards counselling were also examined in the study. Data collection tools were a self-designed questionnaire along with a structured questionnaire to assess quality of working life. Data was obtained from 37 respondents (26 males, 11 females) in the age group of 24 –35 years, who were working in various companies in Mumbai. Analysis indicated that respondents perceived counselling to be helpful for young adults working i n the corporate sector; however, awareness about counselling was not high. Many respondents felt that professional training was necessary to become a counsellor. Friends were preferred for sharing personal problems. If there was a need for counselling, he lp would be sought from a counsellor in a private setting. Respondents felt that their colleagues/co-workers would be supportive if they had to go for counselling. Their decision to go for counselling would not be influenced by social factors.
