I have worked with WAVE Trauma Centre since 2011 as an Outreach Caseworker. In 2016, I moved to the Derry Londonderry Centre to the role of Project Manager.

My role is to ensure the smooth running of the regional centres and support the staff on a day to day basis.

WAVE Ballymoney Centre operates a satellite clinic for counselling, outreach, complementary therapies, health and wellbeing and welfare in the upstairs premises of Midtown Maker, 50-51 Church Street, Ballymena, BT43 6DD (028 25 689430).

In addition, counselling can be offered in Larne and Magherafelt.


The staff team at Ballymoney are experienced, compassionate and qualified to meet the many needs of those who seek our support and services.

All staff receive trauma specific training, which they build upon throughout their career. They take a person-centred approach, putting the individual with trauma at the core of their work. Many individuals accessing these services are not only trying to overcome their bereavement or injury but also living with the trauma of deprivation, poverty, exclusion and intimidation.
