After a career in HR, Asha retrained as a counsellor in 2006, receiving her doctorate in 2017.
“Volunteering with Sue Lambert Trust allows me to put my skills into practice and develop my expertise,” she explains. “I’ve never just wanted to be an academic, I want to do a practical job. Watching the magic happen in the room because the clients are doing the work is very special; you’re just facilitating their process of self-healing, not acting as any sort of expert. The work can be really hard, but it can be exhilarating when you see a client start to make progress; when a person says they no longer feel so alone.”
“I like the ethics and values of Sue Lambert Trust,” Asha continues. “It’s a charity that really trusts and respects its therapists and treats them well. Counsellors are well supported through individual and group supervision and there is always a clinical lead available if we have a difficult session. Getting that support from colleagues is so valuable.”
“I would urge any counsellor to find out more. Sue Lambert Trust is the best place I’ve ever worked and the best work I’ve ever done."
