Pastor Cyril George Carstensen Lutterodt, popularly known as counselor Lutterodt has broken his silence after the Ghana Psychological Council banned him from counselling on both TV and radio.
According to him, he is not a psychologist who needs to be licensed by the Ghana Psychological Council but a pastoral counselor.
He said the council cannot ban him from discharging his duties, since he graduated and was ordained as a pastoral counselor in 2005 so he would practice in that manner.
"I am a pastoral counsellor... I have certificates, I have learnt and still learning. I was trained by a school… but the only challenge is that whatever training you have, it was made clear to us that our certificates cannot run circular,"
"Within what I have learnt so far, I am a qualified pastoral counsellor not by their council (Psychological Council) ...they cannot, till I die ban me in this country, never!" he explained on Peace FMs 'Entertainment Review'.
The Ghana Psychological Council over the past week in a letter addressed to counselor Lutterodt stated that he had no right to practice as psychologist or counsellor and practices or profess to practice psychology of which include counselling or receives payment to provide psychological services commits an offence and is punishable by law".
