Groundwork and stabilisation

volunteer counsellors

Working with our support team is one of the first steps for many of our clients.

Experiencing sexual abuse and sexual violence is a traumatic event that can have a long-lasting  impact on so many areas of life.

Before recommending and starting a course of therapy or counselling with Sue Lambert Trust, we support people to make sure they feel grounded and stable in many areas of their life.

Our groundwork and stabilisation team ensure people are in the right place, both emotionally and practically, for therapy to begin.

We’re here to support people with matters such as housing, finances, benefits, health and wellbeing services.

And when people may feel lost, we work with them to to rediscover their self-confidence and help to manage anxiety.

Our Emotional Skills Programme is one area of our work where we provide people with the tools to manage the symptoms of trauma.

Starting therapy is a life-changing step, and it’s important to feel prepared for what’s to come.

Would you like to self-refer?

Anyone living in Norfolk, aged 11 years or older, can self-refer to Sue Lambert Trust.

If you are struggling and want to take steps to re-build and recover after experiencing sexual assault or sexual abuse, we are here for you. Our services are in high demand so we may not be able to provide help immediately, but please know that we will help you to access the help you need as quickly as we can.
