Award-winning Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson has blamed the popularity of controversial counsellor, Counsellor Lutterodt on the Ghanaian media.

According to Lydia, the media chose ratings over respect and gave him the chance to spew his controversial thoughts on relationships on radio/television.

“Counselor” Lutterodt didn’t happen over night; radio, tv, producers, presenters etc all contributed to his notoriety. People chose “ratings” over respect, they enjoyed him mocking women, calling them ashawo and egged him on. If I see any of you people tweet about this eh,” she wrote in a Tweet on Friday.

Her Tweet came after the Ghana Psychological Council banned the Counsellor from speaking on radio/television.

According to the Council, Mr Lutterodt is not registered with the Council and does not have the requisite qualification for the practice.

“You are being warned for the last time to desist from calling or holding yourself up as a counsellor or providing counselling services in Ghana on radio and television,” the Council said in a statement.

Counsellor Lutterodt has however replied the Council saying,

“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!” an angry Mr Lutterodt added.
