Working life

1. What lead you to your role working at Sue Lambert Trust?

I first came to Sue Lambert as a volunteer counsellor. When an opportunity arose to become more involved, I wanted to bring a wider skill set in, and working as the Groundwork Manager and as a Counsellor lets me do that.

2.  How would you summarise your role at SLT?

I feel very privileged to work for SLT; our work is so important. My role is to support a small team of amazing staff who provide practical and therapeutic support to our clients.  I make an initial assessment to bring the client into Groundwork, which is Phase 1 of our service. I then allocate them to a support worker, and oversee the processes.

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

I feel like I am part of something important. Our work is transformational. Recovering from trauma is achievable, and I am blessed to share that journey with a client.

Home life

1. What do you like doing in your spare time, what are your hobbies or interests outside of work?
I have a 750L Marine Fish Tank, which I am constantly pottering with!  I love gardening and have already filled my greenhouse with seedlings this year! And I have a life as a gigging musician, allowing me to be creative and ‘rock’!

2. What’s your favourite food or meal?

My family are from Mauritius, and we make a creole dish called Bouillabaisse; it’s a seafood dish, you don’t see it in many restaurants, so I make it at home. It’s DELICIOUS, served with plenty of hot crusty white bread and a cold glass of Rosé. Heaven!

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

The Norfolk Broads, I have a boat and can lose plenty of days a year just taking in our beautiful countryside and waterways.

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

The Maldives, I went there for 6 weeks many years ago and absolutely fell in love with it. The diving is amazing. It is the world’s biggest fish tank!
