4TH GRADUATION TESTIMONIES
.This course has actually benefited me in multiple ways. As a professional Guidance and Counsellor Patience is the ingredient to reach the hearts of his client for a trusting relationship which the course has helped me improved upon. It has brought about a more cordial relationship between me and my wife children
and those outside my family. The clear and concise lessons drawn from the various topics especially that of the four basic temperaments and others like anthropology cannot be overlooked. The course has made me and will continue to make me understand why some people behave the way they do. I am indeed blessed. HON. THOMAS GADAGBUI ANSON. (DISTRICT COUNSELLOR, GHANA EDUCATION SERVICE, KETA MUNICIPAL, PRESIDING MEMBER, SOUTH TONGU, DISTRICT ASSEMBLY, THE SECRETARY TO AGAVE TRADITIONAL COUNCIL WELFARE ASSOCATION).
This opportunity to learn the rudiments of psychosocial counselling is a rare one. Something I am most grateful to the organisers of the Akona School of counselling the Mampong lecture point for. I have always wanted an opportunity to take counselling as a course especially because as a family physician in training, it was a very important tool that was required as part of the day to day management of my patient. Learning how to counsel clients in the right way has given me confidence in dealing with certain psychosocial aspect of diseases that my clients may present with.
I have also benefitted from the marriage counselling tremendously and I believe it has given me a good foundation for a successful marriage in a very near future. I would want to extend my sincere appreciation to the management of the school and the organisers of the programme for their good work and helping make this possible. I will gladly recommend the Akona School of counselling to every serious minded church leader, and public workers, intending marriage counsellor, or anyone who possesses the gift of counselling but would need proper nurturing. God richly bless you. DR FRANK DZIFA KPESENU, MEDICAL OFFICER, TETTEH QUARSHIE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL MAMPONG AKUAPEM
Dr. Raphael Nyarkotey Obu is my name, I am known in the country for my work in men’s health and in the dangme land as a crusader for change, because I believe that the dangme man is also capable of becoming a national asset and AKONA has proven that. I am a prolific writer; I have authored two books on the dangme land, one on Men’s Prostate Health. I am a columnist for the Newstateman, The Weekend Sun, Today Newspaper, Ghanaweb and Modern Ghana. I have also written lot of features in daily graphic, daily guide and Ghanaian Times on prostate world and the dangme land. In the year 2014, I was recognized as one of the most successful students in prostate cancer by the alumni connects office of Sheffield Hallam University after I studied the maters program in prostate cancer with my constant call on the Ghanaian government to introduce a specific prostate cancer policy for men in Ghana and my testimony is use in the faculty of Health and Wellbeing, Radiotherapy and Oncology- MOOC program in the school.
I entered AKONA, I hardly believe that one needs counseling, and more importantly, I believe if counseling solve issues, then we shouldn’t have problems with our marriages. I believed that not everyone needs counseling and also some only needs rebuke and not counseling but my view about counseling immediately change when I enrolled in AKONA.
AKONA School of Counseling Ghana is an excellent institution and educational resource. The teaching materials are clear, well organized, and detailed. The materials are written by top experts in the various the field of psychosocial counseling, and the teaching was very practical I found the school to be very economical and flexible. One must be self- motivated to study at AKONA.
I am trained and registered as an integrative Medical Practitioner who specializes in prostate cancer, policymaker, columnist, researcher and a PhD candidate in prostate cancer and alternative medicines at IBAM, India. With my advocacy in men’s health especially prostate cancer pathway in the country, I have been able to introduce a psychosocial oncology unit in my center, Men’s Health Foundation Ghana and De Men’s Clinic & Prostate Research Lab, Dodowa-Akoto House. The psychosocial oncology unit deals with issues of counseling men diagnosed with prostate cancer and all forms of cancers after my study at AKONA.
I learned new areas of healing -- my skills as an alternative physician have improved as well. I am better educated in counseling of my patients in the home and office, and also in general management for patients. Through AKONA, I found that more counselors need to be trained in psychosocial oncology to
help in the fight against cancers in the country. With collaboration with AKONA, we have introduce the first ever course in Psychosocial Oncology to also help AKONA students in counseling of men diagnosed with prostate cancer.
As alternative medicine approaches the ancient holistic medical traditions, giving increasing credence to the mind-body connection, recognizing the gut (and the microbial ecosystem within it) as a powerful source of influence in health and disease, and recognizing the value to health of spiritual practices such as prayer and counseling; so, too, the alternative medical system is approaching the allopathic system, recognizing the critical role of the microbe and gene, anatomy and physiology, and controlled studies for targeted treatment of illness. It is an exciting time to be learning about both. Counseling is also a form of alternative medicines for patient diagnosed with cancers that are either receiving treatments or about to receive treatment by helping them to make good decision on
their cancer pathway and dieting.
About 45% of all cancer treatments recur so it is the best of every hospital or medical institutions to incorporate counseling services in every unit of the medical fraternity. AKONA, not only improved my practice, but in my relationship life. In the year 2015, as I was about to get marry to the woman of my life who I cherished very well, the marriage suffered a setback and the marriage was called off. With AKONA counseling I as able to get out of the challenge of marriage disappointment, it wasn’t as easy but with AKONA, I made my own decision to let it be the way it is. I have leant that it is better to marry late and be happy than to marry early and to suffer divorce. In that moment, I nearly did lots of things to please the lady’s family so I can marry their daughter but I let go because she is one of the few ladies you will easily found in this modern world to be a good woman, humble, sober, and caring and what have you to define for a lady in this world.
There are more things I can write about that AKONA has helped me immensely but I will end here but if anyone wants to know more can contact me through AKONA.

As someone who was new in the field of Counselling, I had searched thoroughly on the internet for a counselling school both home and abroad to help me pursue my dream of becoming the first Accredited Fertility Counsellor in Ghana until I came across the Akona School of Counselling.
I found the school a very credible one among the lot in Ghana in view of the calibre of Professionals who had enrolled in the previous sessions. I therefore decided to join the 2015 class without any further delay. Indeed, I have been proven right since the course has been extremely beneficial to me in so many ways. It has given me a sound footing to enable me pursue Masters in Guidance and Counselling in the year 2016.
The rich experience and knowledge of the lecturers cannot be overemphasized. These have had greater impact on my work. Apart from the knowledge I have gained, the Pre-Marriage Counselling course has added some spices to our thirteen (13) years of marriage since my wife and I did not go through any pre marriage counselling.
I therefore recommend Akona School of Counselling to anyone interested in pursuing counselling as a profession. Nana Yaw Osei, Fertility Counsellor & CEO, ACCOG (www.accog.com.gh) Elder, The Church of Pentecost, Tema Greenwich Meridian
I got married to my beautiful wife over 32 years ago and I thought I knew her very well. We had children, we brought them up in the Lord and I thought I knew each child very well. I have in-laws, sibling and other close relatives and friends that I thought l knew well.
Right from my youthful age I thought I was offering counselling to people that brought their problems to me for solution .Yes I succeeded in solving some. Others put up strange behaviours and I wonder.
Today I am very much convinced, after going through the counselling course that, I did not know much about my partner, children, in-laws, sibling and other close relatives after all.
It was also clear to me that I was seriously engaged in arbitration and offering advice instead of counselling. During the counselling course, I also got to understand why people behaved the way they did and the best skills to apply to help me handle the anomalies in their behavioural changes.
As a teacher in the Senior High School, I now understand my students better and help most of them out of emotional conflict. I also relate better with teachers and help counsell those who share their problems with me. This is a fantastic self discovery.
Yes, I had been enjoying marriage life for years now, but I can attest to the fact that my marriage life through the course, had been spiced up with fresh breeze blowing through it. I owe the credit to Akona School Of Counselling Ghana for this vast knowledge. May the Director and Organizers of this school be lifted to higher height. Amen. Dennis D. Kodie, Educationist, GHANATA, Dodowa
My name is Rev Martin A Bediako and I am the General Secretary of Mount Horeb Prayer Centre Mamfe. In the year 2009, I had a special encounter with the Lord and the direction I had was to pursue a Degree Course in Theology and further it up to become a professional Counsellor. And so in the year 2013, I graduated from the Christian University College with a second class upper division in BA(Hons) Theology.
However, I had very little knowledge of who a Professional Counselor was and how and where I could get myself trained so I kept probing and asking,
In 2013, my "son" Solo, a Reverend Minister gave me the Executive Director's telephone number but it was not until somewhere in early July 2015,that I made attempts to get in touch with the Director and then to my contact man.
Then along the line I had a call from the Director. And his words among others were that "The programme had been brought just to your door steps" I was so excited and so within hours I got myself registered at the AKUAPEM MAMPONG PRESBY CHURCH and My first lesson was on Module three of diploma programme in Psychosocial Counselling.
I looked through the modules 1.2 &3. Listened to my lecturer who happened to be the Executive Director. I participated fully in the lesson for the day and my first impression was superb. At the end of the day I could see me talking to myself and saying "THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED AND WHAT YOU WANT". The lecture notes are painstakingly researched and "divinely" written.
The lecturers handled the lessons with all the principles of Adult learning class and made us feel very much at home. The students, well respected ladies and Gentlemen were all focused.
As we went along, I realized that there were a whole lot that I could do with the knowledge that I was acquiring. I saw that Counseling has a very broad spectrum and was very much enthused as we went through topics like counselling the dying and the bereaved, the making of a will and others
In summary I would say that I found every page of the modules very important so much so that at the end of the course I decided to summaries every page of the modules, answer all the assignments and research on all the suggested project work/case study. At the time of writing this testimony, am still on Module one.
It is my prayer that the Lord would water this vision, bless the visionary, and place all the intents of the visionary on a 'fast track" to His own glory. Amen. Rev Martin A Bediako, General Secretary, Mount Horeb Prayer Centre, Mamfe.
Akona School of counselling Ghana has been of great benefit to me. First of all, it has broadened my perception about how to relate to, and accept individual differences.
The lecturers handle the courses as practical as possible, relating it to our society as such, I have accepted the fact that individual differences largely depends on ones worldview; that is a person‘s action and reaction to situation depends on his or her past experiences and level of exposure. I used to have the expectation that people should behave in a particular manner. However, that has change, I now give room for error and for what I call “strange behavior”
Also having studies psychosocial counselling in Akona, I have realized that I am more of a pragmatic person than theoretical in nature. In other words I like looking at things from a more practical and detailed perceptive. No wonder reading courses that are not directly related to our society or practical things wear me out.
Finally, I discover that in order to have a sound, peaceful and prosperous nation, counsellors are needed in homes, schools, churches, mosques, and the working environment. At is point however, I must commend and encourage the management, staff and lecturers to keep up the good work of training more counsellors professionally who will play an active role of influencing society positively.
Thank you. Crystal Kinsmam, Psychiatrist Nurse, Accra Psychiatric Hospital
After "whetting my appetite" with Psychosocial Counseling I decided to dive deep into marriage counseling in order to help church members and friends who come to me for guidance. Little did I realize that the counselor even needed counselling.
After some few topics I realized that my marriage stands a chance of collapsing any opportune moment. This program has added some "nutrients" into my marriage, repaired the death tissues and strengthened the immune system. I become more caring, respectful toward my wife and children, financially wise and more romantic in my marriage.
To the Glory of God people I have had the opportunity to counsel have also made better decisions that have strengthened their marriages.
To me this program has been an eye opener in life and will recommend it to every leader in the church, the Moslem leaders and even the human resource managers to be able to deal with issues that confront family life our members and workers. Rev. Samuel Mensah, Staff of Anatomy Department, KBTH
Family & Marriage Class, Accra.
In 2012 I decided to apply for Masters in Divinity program in one of the Universities, which according to the requirement one needed any first degree to enter. However, upon careful analysis I rather opted for the certificate program in Akona School of Counseling (ASOC) in other to build a solid foundation before I enter the M.Div. little did I know was going to be one of the most valuable investment in terms of energy and time I have ever made.
Infact, my perception about theology has changed my preparation and delivery of sermons and teachings have improved. Sometimes, I had wished I could roll back the time in order to correct some of theological error I held on to before undertaking this program.
My relationship with my family has improved tremendously and has brought life into our family devotional lives. Sometimes I find so interesting listening to my children expressing their on what we have studied. It has also affected my leadership style in the work place, church, home and on the mission field in the villages we sometimes operate.
I will recommend theology and leadership to every Christian who wants to deepen his or her knowledge in God and especially run by ASOC. Rev. Samuel Mensah, Staff of Anatomy Department, KBTH.
Akona School of counseling has brought a lot of change into my life. I am person of a cruel temperament that I could not control. I see people around me as an enemies and that behavior was affecting me in my marital life. But Glory be to God that I met one sister who introduce me to their three days pre-marital counseling session and through that course I began to understand marriage and how to go about it. This led me to join the Akona School of Counseling that has also shape me in to a different level in live. I now understand people and their behavior.
My friend and people who know me and my weak temperament now testify that I am a change person. Glory be to God, Thanks be to Akona.Mrs. Sylvia Assinu, Educationist, Asutsuare.
My name is Elder Joseph Boakye Danquah, an elder in the Church of Pentecost. I had the opportunity to be enrolled in one of the Private Bible School in the Greater Accra Region which I thought was the best but when I joined Akona School of Counselling in 2014/2015 academic year, I realized that there was difference. As the Akan say, "Ebi de da ebi akyi".
As the District Evangelism Ministry Leader, I must confess that Akona School has helped me a lot. The lessons learnt has enlightened my understanding and in-depth study about the Scriptures, its interpretation, meaning and applications. Some of the courses offered in the School were; Developing Youth Ministry, Homiletics, Evangelism, Home Cell, Motivational Gift and many more. Out of these courses/subjects/lessons, the Motivational Gifts in Romans 12:6-8 has helped me a lot. I got more insight and I realized that this type of gift has its positive and weakness aspects. As a Christian, I have to make sure I develop the strength aspect and get the negative aspect under control. In Akona Theology Department/School, subjects like Psychology and Leadership Training Skills are bonuses. We have God fearing men and women students who are very humble as our lecturers.
I advice all Christians and non-Christians who want to study the Scriptures to patronise Akona School of Counselling, Theology Department for sound Biblical teachings.
AKONA SCHOOL! EBI DE DA EBI AKYI. Elder Joseph Boakye Danquah, Accra
The training programme organised by AKONA is one that should be embraced by all and sundry. The training offered the opportunity for practical illustrations and demonstration to be done in addressing issues pertaining to marriage and business life. During the training, it was realised that, all humans are unique and must be treated as such for peace which is a factor for development to prevail. The training made it possible that when there is a situation, one must understand that, there are factors which lead to that and with careful thought giving to it without reacting immediately, solutions(s) will come to address it.
The training offered the chance on how couples should relate with their in-laws in order to make their marriage a marriage. The training made one to understand the unique characteristics of children, youth and adults so that you can relate with them without any problem.
Apart from the above benefits and many more I had from the training, I am opened to how business plans) is/are written, how good cover page is presented and also learnt about key areas proposal evaluators check to award contract. I encourage anyone to get enrolled in this unique Training for a better life now and tomorrow. Akunor Abraham - Teacher, GES, Asutsuare
Knowing God, understanding His ways and doing His will has drawn me more closer to Him. Now, I’m not ashamed to declare that He is Lord. I thank God for being part of Akona School of Counselling Ghana. The school has change my worldview about so many things and has help in given me confidence to be bold in speaking the word of God to other people who are in need of it.
Personally I began to see why things I have asked God for years has never pass. I was all along thinking my past sins has bolted my prayer answers. The secret came out when we were introduction to principles of faith. I found out that I was not operating in faith. I was rather operating in hope. I always hoping that God will do it someday. In His own time which was wrong I realized I have wavering faith James 1:5 – 7. But when my faith became strong things started changing.
My relationship with my children has also been deepen. Having the Spirit of wisdom and knowledge about God empowered me to set up a prayer session my former work place, even though I’m no more there it is still in operation and another one is in operation at my new place.
Passing through the school, my way of preaching and teaching the Word of God has changed, I now used different study materials in preparation before leading any programme. Above all the manifestation gifts are in operation in my life. I thank God for making me one of the pillars in His church.
I thank God that I can see Him more clearly love Him more dearly and following Him more day by day. Georgina Darko, Teacher GES, Accra
I am so much impressed about the lectures, skills and knowledge being impacted into my life through Akona School of counselling and its lecturers. The course has been a real blessing to me personally, my institution, the Ghana Police service, as we always deal with the public, and my family. There were many things I learnt during this course which I did not know, but now I can boast of being perfect as marriage is concern. I, my wife and children are now leaving in a happily home. Our financial management is now in a good shape as compared to previous. Moreover, I have now come to understand peoples world view, therefore, I can boast of being a good customer service provider, to listen attentively and provide good customer care to the complainants who come to my office to lodge complaints as police service is concern. The course has blessed me to acquired knowledge of will preparation and business proposal as well. All thanks to God for guiding me through this intensive programme. God bless you Mr. Konotey Ahulu and the entire administration. COL. AKENTENG SOLOMON, Ghana Police Service, Madina.
Information of the Akona Counseling School came to my notice in October 2014 via the notice board at our establishment. I called the phone number displayed beneath the notice and it went to Mr. B.T. Obloni, who told me classes will be opened on December, I, 2014. I never regretted the contact so established, and that I am a student of this august school.
I have to admit that I am rather overwhelmed by the capacity and competence of the school. I am amazed at the scope of subjects treated. Subjects I did not imagine could be treated were taught. This has rather broaden my limited mental reasoning. Subjects such as Biblical anthropology: Will making; Communication in counselling; Introduction to Law of Contract; Business Plan Development Skills; Medical terminologies and some diseases which are common in our society were treated. Indeed, the school has opened up and sharpened my knowledge and broaden my scope of reasoning. It has improved my understanding and approach in handling issues with people who come my way. I see myself as a refined gentleman in society who can now pay attention to issues more discreetly and intelligently than ever. Our psychosocial environment is bereft with problems from domestic to governmental and even through churches, with each party claiming righteousness. I am now in a good state to help identify and resolve some of these problems.
The course has made me to study and understand human 18ehavior, and has drastically reduced my temperament towards such awkward behaviours. It has equally made me to allow counselees to make their own decisions rather than imposing Counsellors decisions on counselees. Hitherto, I had the opposite view. Paying attention and listening attentively to the client is paramount in effective counselling as it gives the counsellor sound understanding to the problem and could equally give sound counselling. A Counsellor must not pre-judge or take position before the determination of the case. I, as a counsellor, should give equal regard to my clients, irrespective of status in society, size, colour, race, etc. I must not argue mentally and drawing hasty conclusions.
Indeed, the course has enhanced my knowledge and competence and has rather refined me into a nice gentleman, ready to exhibit my skills and competence I have learnt so as to also assist the psychosocial society, especially within my environment. MR. JOHN ATSU, SCHOOL PREFECT, AKUSE, VRA.
AKONA SCHOOL OF COUNSELLING, GHANA has indeed played a significant role in my life.
It has had a positive influence on my life after going through the various modules of the programme. .Initially my world view about counselling changed after my first encounter with the course tutor when he took us through the definition and the various dimensions of counselling. The counselling various topics enabled me to acquire new knowledge and skills.
Some remarkable influences of this course on my life is how it has enabled me to develop a healthy relationship with others by understanding and appreciating their views and how through this course I have been able to counsel others. Specifically, I was able to help a child who had stopped going to school for several months, but by counselling him, he now goes to school regularly and is doing very well academically in the Roman Catholic Primary School at Akuse amongst several other personalities that I have been able to help through knowledge gained in the course.
In conclusion, I would like to say that AKONA SCHOOL OF COUNSELLING GHANA is one of the best counselling School in the country which is actually raising and building up worthy counsellors for mother Ghana to help transform the lives of many people in the country and beyond. I would also like to use this medium to recommend this distinguished school to others.
My sincere thanks goes to the Almighty God, the management of AKONA SCHOOL OF COUNSELLING GHANA and the ever dynamic course tutor for Akuse Mr. BenjaminTetteh Obloni for his relentless and selfless effort in training me and my other colleagues at the Centre. Master Jones Akpaglo, Compassion International,Akuse, A/G.
I have been more than blessed after I did enroll as a student.
Before this training, I went through 3 months of counselling before I married. I thought I knew everything about my wife well but Akona School of Counselling Ghana made me understand that I did not know her at all after I went through some few exercises.
I also realized that the so called counselling I went through before marriage was nothing to write home about as Akona opened my eyes. Now I have seen a great change in my marital life. Through Akona I am able to learn more about my spouse and now I am experiencing a ‘magic’ marital joy.
I also learnt that the advise I used to give to people is not actually counselling. I was taught that counselor do not make decisions for their clients. In summary I will say that I went to Akona empty but I now full. God richly bless Akona School of Counselling Ghana.
God bless Ghana. Jonathan K. O. Odom, Educationist, GES, Dodowa
As a Divisional Coordinator for the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU), Akona School of Counselling has transformed my service delivery from an ordinary crisis responder to a more proficient and informed counsellor with the skill to deal with the most difficult situations that come to my office. Before then, I had no idea what Psychosocial meant in counselling.
Personally, I found the course very interesting and enlightening. And the least I can say is that I have this evident feeling of transformation within me. I now enjoy my marriage even more peacefully having gone through this course.
The patience with which the facilitators dealt with students in class is quite worth emulating. The Director himself is a living example of meekness, gentleness and inspiration. The course materials are to me like pearls of treasure; very rich, timeless, comprehensive and yet affordable. For me, the opportunity to enrol with the school was by divine arrangement. I couldn’t have been more blessed at the later part of 2015 than the attainment of this award. And I have the intension of studying further and more with the institute to enhance every aspect of my life; career, personal and family. Inspector Eunice Afelipok Atinya
Dovvsu Divisional Coordinator, Akwapem
The course at Akona school has great impact on my life. It has open my minds to get a clear distinction between counselling and advicing people. Understanding what a world view and temperamental differences. Have also helped me to appreciate why people behave the way they do.
As a chairman of the local marriage committee of our church am now able to render better counselling services to marriage couples especially in conflict resolution, taking family decision and how to handle family finances. Pre marital counselling services of our local church has improved as since we have shifted from advice to proper pre marital counselling based on recommended books. Would be couples now feel happy to attend pre marital counselling since they could now enjoy the sessions.
As a professional Accountant the course has helped to improve my relationship with clients and other colleagues at the work side. At the family level, my wife and kids enjoy the way I relate to each other especially when faced with emotional challenges since we try to apply various theories from Sigmod Freud and others to the family. Mark Brako-Appiah,Ghana National Fire Service, Accra
This course blessed me. I know my strengths and weaknesses and how to relate to others. I Know others behaviours and adjust my life style. With this knowledge, I work without fear. I know cause of stress and its remedies. Above all marriage is more physical than spiritual. As a professional counsellor, I need not to abuse my clients money or harass them sexually. By Sgt. Akesseh Elolo, Ghana Police Service, Accra
Personally, the course has been a blessing to my family, myself and my career as a teacher. Before this course, I was counselling people but how to end it was a problem. This course has really helped me because, I can now help my counselees to analyse their problems and find lasting solutions to them.
The course has actually changed my perception about people and I now have serious considerations for other people “world view.” I now understand my children and even why my husband behave in a certain way. I appreciate myself better now, thanks to Akona School of Counselling. Emma Rachael Frempong(Mrs) Educationist & S.H.S Tutor Accra, Course Rep. Adenta
In the first place, I hereby acknowledge the entire class for nominated and stood behind me as able course prefect.
I must admit, am overwhelmed with joy the impact that the short period of the intensive course of the Psychosocial & Marriage Counselling is having on my life, on my work, and on my family as a whole.
The positive impact of the course on my life is that, I now exhibiting good and acceptable behavioural attitude by coping with the set of rules and ethics govern the field of counselling. In addition to the above I can also write better business and project proposal.
It has again position and given me confidence as a professional counsellor in my field of work. But for the knowledge and the expertise, I have acquired through the course I now sit among counsellors to offer counselling. Also I was able to present a project proposal of how the prisoners can be transformed and integrate them with their family. I'm happy to state that even the recent ‘afiase’ project initiated by the chairman of the Prison Counsel has some of my vision out lined.
On my family life, I have come to realised that we have individual difference and capability. Therefore I have allow my family members to do things at their own pace. And it has greatly reduce tension that existed and has promoted coherent unity and understanding.
Indeed "Akona" is great. Great in the sense that I now see myself more useful and skillful to myself, my place of work and to my family. ACO Emmanuel B. Awatery, Ghana Prison Service, Kumasi Local.
