It is a statutory body under the Ministry of Women, Family and Society Development.

In view of the complexity of social problems and the need for trained and qualified personnel to address these problems, the Counsellors Act (Akta Kaunselor) was enacted in 1998. The Act provides for the registration and practice of counsellors in Malaysia and the establishment of the Board of Counsellors to ensure professionalism and high standards among counsellors. With the implementation, it is mandatory for all practising counsellors to be registered with the Board under the Counsellors Act 1998 [Act 580].

The main responsibility of the Lembaga Kaunselor is to oversee and regulate counselling services in Malaysia. Counsellors exist in schools, universities, public services, drug rehabilitation centres, prison, religious and health centres, corporation and community.
