Sturge operates out of Northwick Park Hospital, Harrow, Middlesex and Glaser from Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. Judith Freedman , a consultant psychotherapist at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust (yes, Tavistock) and John Lawrence also a psychotherapist, are apparently a married couple.
