Working life

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

I had seen the role of Head of Counselling advertised and was aware of the important work that the Trust does for people in Norfolk. had been thinking about applying as it felt like the next step in my counselling career and was performing a deputy role in my previous job and felt like I had something to offer the Trust. After speaking to people I knew working at Sue Lambert and hearing good things, I decided to apply.

2. How would you summarise your role at SLT?

I see my role as ensuring that the people we work with get the best quality services that we can offer, allowing them to get to a place where they can process and feel empowered to make changes they feel they want to make, to lead the lives they want. As the Head of Counselling putting the people that use our service at the centre of our work and ensuring that the team around them have the ability to support them fully.

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

I have only been here a few weeks, but I am struck by the team’s passion and willingness to support, not only the people who use our service, but one another to enable that too!

Home life

1. What do you like doing in your spare time, what are your hobbies or interests outside of work?

My spare time is generally occupied with me pottering around the garden or wandering around Mousehold Heath , trying to be out in nature. I am a passionate reader and film watcher, more often than not engrossed in a spy thriller or crime fiction. Catching up with friends is always great, and I like to sit in a coffee shop with them and put the world to rights!

2. What’s your favourite food or meal?

I really enjoy cooking so having a favourite food or meal is a difficult question for me. If I had to choose then I will probably go for something Mediterranean.

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

Norwich city centre is always a joy, but I am thinking getting out into the countryside to visit my family is one of my favourite places to visit. More the people I think rather than a place!

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

I have always wanted to go to India and Japan, and also travel across the States from the east to west coast, so maybe that might be on the cards in the future.
