Turn off your TV, radio if my opinions are bad – Counsellor Lutterodt

Controversial TV and radio personality, ‘Counsellor’ George Lutterodt has indirected responded to the ban by the Ghana Psychology Council on his carrer.

According to him, people had the right to switch off their radio or television sets when he is expressing his opinion about an issue.

The controversial personality, who was responding to his ban by the Ghana Psychology Council for the first time on Peace FM‘s Entertainment Review on Saturday, September 21, said he doesn’t force people to accept his supposedly wrong doctrines since he is called to express his views about trending issues.

“I’m a change agent and what I’m doing has saved many lives contrary to what people think about my teachings. Many people are frustrated and depressed and need psychological help. They mostly don’t have people to talk to and harbour suicidal thoughts and I receive calls from such people daily.

“I may not be making sense to some people but many people are also benefitting from my services so it is not compulsory for anyone to accept what I say. If you think what I’m saying is not making sense, you can switch off your devices when you see or hear me talk,” he said.

Counsellor Lutterodt also disclosed that he didn’t start off as the counsellor Lutterodt many have come to know and that the name was just a brand.

“Anyone who knows me from the days of Radio Universe will testify that I never called myself counsellor but gradually, people started calling me counsellor when I started appearing on radio and television shows and I have accepted it as my brand for what I’m doing,” he said.

The Ghana Psychology Coucil in a recent press statement said Counsellor Lutterodt could not hold himself as a counsellor.

The council cited him as being in contravention of the Health Professions Regulatory Bodies Act by calling and holding himself as a counsellor as well as providing counselling services on radio and television.

“The Health Professions Regulatory Bodies Act stipulates in section 14 that a person who doesn’t have the requisite qualification and who is not registered within the council but wilfully and falsely uses any name, title, or in addition, implying a qualification of practice as a psychologist(counsellor) and practices or professes to practice psychology of which include counselling or received payment to provide psychological services commits an offence and is punishable by law,” Registrar of the Council, Dr Dinah Baah-Odoom said in a letter.

However, Counsellor Lutterodt said he had professional training as a counsellor and had a certificate to prove that and would resist any attempts to arrest him.
