The Sue Lambert Trust works with survivors of childhood sexual abuse, rape, sexual assault and domestic violence, offering support to help survivors come to terms with what has happened to them. We offer a safe, secure environment where people are listened to, believed and accepted. We are trained to deal with the many issues surrounding sexual abuse and domestic violence. All information will be treated in the strictest confidence.
Much of our counselling and support work is done in Norwich. We also have premises in Great Yarmouth. Please click here for details of support available in other parts of the country.
1. Counselling – We offer long term (up to 12 months) and short term (up to 12 weeks) face to face weekly sessions with a counsellor, working one to one to help with all issues related to sexual abuse and violence. We understand that trauma work can be a lengthy process, especially with our most complex clients. Thus, we are able to extend the length of time for counselling when this is in the best interest of the client. More info
Please be aware the average wait for counselling is 18 months.
2. Support – One to one support from our trained support workers including:
- help with managing anxiety, flashbacks, etc
- help to regain confidence
- help to access other services and community activities
- help with money, debt, benefits, housing if needed
3. Support groups – Informal support groups for women and for men. More info
