Before you can unlock this achievement you will need to have unlocked all the story characters, the vast majority are unlocked via the story itself but there are a few from random encounters. There is a list here of the characters and it shows which mission unlocks them (and of course details that mission) http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Director_Mode I only did the story and Kifflom and I was only missing 2, Beverley and Mrs. Thornhill.
Dylan XBA also notes that Dr Friedlander is also missable but https://www.trueachievements.com/chasingghossts.htm confirms you can visit at any time to unlock him

Once you have them all unlocked, whilst story mode is loaded up press cn_start and scroll right using cn_RB to the 'Rockstar Editor' menu and press cn_A to enter. Choose 'Director Mode' from here and accept the launch.

Click actors and pick any of the actors in the Story characters menu.

Once the mode loads the achievement will pop, BLAZE VII notes that this one might have a little delay before it pops.
Brev2034Every character is unlocked apart from Cris from age ive done the kifflom mission and completed it but he still locked and it wont let me redo the mission 😠😠

SpilnerI don't remember if you can visit the doctor again, Dylan XBA but if you could that might do it? I will add the Dr to the list of missables, I didn't realise id done that.

I don't know what to say Brev2034, if hes not showing and you cant redo then id hate to say it but you might have to restart :/

Be interesting to see if characters carry over saves since then you wouldn't have to redo much.

Brev2034I think I have figured out why hes not unlocked, I did the kifflom mission got the achievement and then had to restart as my save got corrupt when I restarted I don't think I did it again as I already had the achievement gunna try it again

SpilnerApparently had you needed to you could have redone the missions by taking the test again

BLAZE VIIJust a heads-up for everyone that had all characters already (like me). There was a slight delay for unlocking this one. So just give it at least a minute or so to make the game recognize it. Did the Cris Formage which unlocked straight away but not this one so I walked around for a minute.

SpilnerBut why a taxi? I could visit him in my own car. Is the taxi part important.
Posted by Spilner on 17 Sep 15 at 07:35
Ghost AveNo, not necessarily. I just happened to discover the shrink while scrolling through locations while I was in the taxi. You could take a taxi or drive there.

SpilnerOk, that's what I thought, sidenote the doc is now dead for my story laugh

TheBongoFuryI have unlocked ALL characters. Including Dr Friedman who was missing in the list. I got the doctor, killed him. Have 27/27 story actors and it's not unlocking. Does it matter which actor you take? Or is it glitched by now?
Posted by TheBongoFury on 17 Sep 15 at 22:46
SpilnerThere are some achievement issues on One right now
Posted by Spilner on 17 Sep 15 at 23:11
TheBongoFuryI have seen it. Still used to the Xbox360 days where achievements unlocked, even if you were offline.... Did it just now, achievement popped....

Soccer King6354So I don't have Cris Formage unlocked but I have 100% game completion and have the kifflom achievement. I have taken the test again but nothing happens. Any help?
Posted by Soccer King6354 on 27 Sep 15 at 17:28
SpilnerI really don't know, unless unlocked characters carry over saves so you could start a new save to get cris and he updates with your other unlocks.
Posted by Spilner on 28 Sep 15 at 05:22
LegendI didnt have only Dr. I just went to him and... that's all ;) Cut scene, chase, I killed him and he unlocked.

SpilnerOpen director mode and go to story characters like detailed in the solution.

StonellHumanoidI have 27 unlocked characters from history mode, how many should be in total?
Posted by StonellHumanoid on 10 Mar 16 at 05:17
Spilner27, I linked http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Director_Mode in the solution to show you them all in their areas.

Don't forget you need to also enter director mode as one of the story characters for this.
