Accra, Oct. 22, GNA – Mrs Cecilia
Tutu-Danquah, Executive Director of the International Conference for
Counsellors and Associates, (ICCA) has said there is a pressing need for
Counsellors to provide professional and timely counselling services to support
Ghanaians.

“Many social vices are happening in our
country because our family system, educational system, nation builders and
major stakeholders have neglected the critical intervention of professional
counselling services,” she said.

Mrs Tutu-Danquah said this at an International
Conference for Counsellors and Associates, held over the weekend to build the
capacities of professional Counsellors and Associates to provide satisfying
counselling practices.

“I believe that the provision of counselling
services to support human development starts from the womb and ends in the
tomb, it is also said that where there is no counsel, the people fail but in
the multitude of Counsellors there is safety,” she said.

She noted that when people do not have access
to Counsellors their situations get worse and their livelihood and productivity
dwindle.

The conference attended by about 150
participants discussed best practices and topics such as; cyber counselling,
taking counselling notes and income generation strategies towards financial
independence for Counsellors and Associates.

Participants were also treated to
socialisation activities such as; rock and roll dancing and an expedition to
planetarium
