About Terry

Bio

I am a medical doctor, psychotherapist and author. I am fully registered with the Irish Medical Council, and full accredited with the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP. I have been on several government mental health groups, including by the Department of Health and Children to the Expert Group on Mental Health Policy (2003-6), which formulated 'A Vision for Change', Ireland's official mental health policy document since 2006. I was subsequently appointed by the Department of Health and Children to the group charged with monitoring the implementation of this policy, The Independent Monitoring Group for A Vision for Change (2006-9), and I was reappointed to the Second Independent Monitoring Group (2009-12).
