Working life

1 – What lead you to your role working with and volunteering at Sue Lambert Trust?

Working with the Sue Lambert Trust felt like the perfect fit for me as their approach and ethos fit so well this the way I work. To be able to work with clients who have experienced sexual trauma, I wanted to be able to offer support to those who have had very little or no help during such a difficult time in their lives. Everyone at the trust is so supportive and welcoming, and very quickly I felt a part of the team.

2 – How would you summarise your role at Sue Lambert Trust?

As a Counsellor at SLT, my role is to provide a kind, safe and supportive environment to help clients work through their experience of trauma, realising and understanding together how their traumatic experience has impacted their behavioural, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. I also facilitate supportive group sessions, providing additional options for those who can benefit from peer support.

3 – What do you like most about working for Sue Lambert Trust?

What I like about working at the Sue Lambert Trust is the journey that I get to go on with the clients I am with. To be able to witness the transformation from feeling unsafe to realising their potential. The support I receive from the trust is amazing and this is a big part of the reason why I work at the Sue Lambert Trust.

 

Home life

1 – What do you like doing in your spare time, do you have any hobbies or interests?

I love visiting the many beaches around Norfolk with my partner and our handsome dachshund, Frank. Movie nights at home are also a favourite pastime. DIY projects bring me joy as I love learning new skills and renovating my home and I also enjoy arts and crafts.

 

2 – What’s your favourite food or meal?

Food is a true passion of mine, (mainly the eating of it) and while steak, curry, and a good roast are definitely in the top five, Thai food is by far my favourite. I love all the spices and flavours.

 

3 – What’s your favourite place to visit in Norfolk?

Norfolk’s beauty is undeniable, but the Norfolk Broads hold a special spot as my favourite place to visit. We once had a boat and remember taking it out on a hot summer day, instantly transporting me to my happy place.

 

4 – If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?

If there was one place I could travel to in the world, it would be Tenerife, specifically the top of Mount Teide at Sunset. I don’t think I’ve ever felt that level of calm before.
