Dr. Phil lost his license to practice psychology
in 2006. Therefore, all guests on his TV show
must sign a contract stating they are only
there to receive "advice" from an individual,
not a psychologist.

    • Misleading. It seems to imply he engaged in malpractice. He does hold a doctorate in psychology, but he’s not a licensed psychologist, since he let his license expire by his own volition. He's never been licensed to practice in California, where he films, and he retired his Texas license in 2006.
