"It can be incredibly challenging to witness the suffering of another human being. Therefore, working with Sue Lambert Trust as a volunteer has huge benefits both for the charity and, because of the infrastructure of support, for the counsellor. "Counsellor story - Bob
"When people hear voices, it is often associated with childhood sexual abuse. All survivors are clearly deeply affected by what happened to them, but different people deal with the trauma in different ways, one of which is voice hearing. It was because of this that I realised I wanted to work with the Sue Lambert Trust and help people who have experienced sexual violence or abuse. I currently work as a volunteer every Wednesday, alongside my private practice."Counsellor story - Asha
