I grew up Catholic, and I remember the confessionals had separate entrances for penitents and priests, and both halves were separated by a screen. It would have been nigh impossible to molest someone in a confessional, unless it was obvious to anyone outside that it was being used improperly (for example, two people entering the same side).

One-on-one "counseling", however, would be another matter entirely. Still, I think that abuse would be less likely if the priest had a (likely female) secretary in the next room who could hear if anything unusual were going on.
