About Terence McGinnie has been involved in recovery from addiction for nearly 30 years. He has worked within both the voluntary and private sectors and started working for a charity which helped alcoholics and their families and later worked for the Priory group of Hospitals.

Terry has lectured to peers and groups of GPs/Consultant Psychiatrists about addiction, has had articles published in the press and has made radio broadcasts on both local radio and the BBC. He is a qualified counsellor on the United Kingdom Register of Independent Counsellors, is accredited by the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Professionals and holds a Masters Degree in Mental Health Studies.
