Working life

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

I’d qualified as a psychotherapist in 2014 in London and volunteered for various organisations including a HIV support charity, Berkshire Counselling Services and Missing People. When I moved to Norfolk, I was keen to continue in a volunteering role and having read what Sue Lambert Trust did I offered up my services and began working here in 2022.

 

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

Sue Lambert Trust is an incredibly supportive environment, and that support and kindness stretches beyond clients and out to everyone working here.

 

Home life

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

I’d love to say I do something like Appalachian Clog dancing or I’m busy learning the language of the Kalahari Bushmen but I can’t because sadly I’m not. I enjoy hiking, cooking, reading and playing the guitar. I’m lucky enough to have made a good circle of friends since I came to Norfolk, so the majority of my weekends are spent socialising and exploring the area.

 

2 – What’s your favourite food or meal?

In the 1980s I was lucky enough to go to China and the food there was amazing so I tend to be always lean towards Chinese foods although I’m not sure if that’s just for nostalgic reasons.

 

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

I haven’t been here very long. I met some friends last year in a village that had a pub, a church and a stable-like area that was converted into small businesses. There was also an enormous park that led onto some sort of stately home. It was a really nice place but I’ve no idea where it was! I will have to find out and revisit it sometime.

 

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

I’d love to go to Tibet.
