Psychology Council Grants Amnesty To Trained Unlicensed Psychologists And Counsellors

The Ghana Psychology Council Board, with the approval of the Minister of Health, has granted amnesty to all Psychologists and Counsellors who have completed their training but have not yet been licenced by the Council.

A statement signed by the Acting Registrar of the Council said this is to allow all practitioners practising in the country without a licence to regularise their profession and practise without paying the late registration penalty.

“By this amnesty arrangement, they are to apply and get licensed in order to enable them practice legally in the Country as per the provisions stated in Part 5 of the Health Professions Regulatory Bodies Act, 2013 (Act 857).

“This amnesty takes immediate effect from 30th May 2023 and will expire on 31st December 2023,” the statement said.

It continued, “However, Practitioners are to note that this amnesty does not apply to those who are already licensed and have defaulted in renewing their license.”

The Ghana Psychology Council is the Regulatory Body mandated by the Health Professions Act 857 Section 5 to register and license all persons who have been trained in Psychology and Applied Psychology to enable them to practice legally in Ghana.
