The Ghana Psychology Council of Ghana has disclosed that controversial marriage and relationship Counselor, George Lutterodt is not a licensed counselor.
The council in a press statement cautioned the public to desist from labeling George Lutterodt as a counselor.
“The law (Act 857) stipulates in section 119 that ‘A person shall not practice as a psychologist, paraprofessional, or provide psychological services unless that person is registered as a practitioner’.
It is for this reason that we wish to state that Mr. Lutterodt is not a licensed counsellor, thus media houses who employ his services and air his statements as a counsellor are in contravention of the law”, excerpts of the press statement read.
