Re: Who was a better counselor, Troi or Guinan?

From what we were shown, Guinan would seem to have been better at her job than Troi ever was, but I think that's more the writer's fault than what was 'actually' the case on the ship. People will spill their heart to a bartender because of anonymity, and for that same reason the bartender will dispense advice, but a trained counselor is usually the way to go.
Not much chance of anonymity on a starship, even one with over 1000 people on board

I'd agree Guinan was a better written "counselor", official or not.
