My name is Jude Black and I am the Director of Affinity Counselling in both Tunbridge Wells, Kent and Wadhurst, East Sussex. I hold an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Counselling and am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I am experienced in working with many different clients (men and women) in a variety of areas including anger, anxiety, addiction, bereavement, depression, eating disorders, identity issues, personal growth, relationships, sexual abuse and stress.
You can call on 07875 596420 or 01892 540424 for your FREE 15 minute telephone consultation where you have an opportunity to speak informally about whatever is troubling you and to decide if this is this is the right choice, so you can then move forward into a healthier and calmer life. Take the first step towards a healthier you.
Finding someone that you’re comfortable talking to is as individual as you are. We don’t always hit it off with everyone we meet and developing relationships can take time, allowing trust and respect to grow.
The same is true of counselling. Every counsellor is an individual and will work with their own style. Our first meeting will be one where can explore this. It allows both parties to decide if they are able to work together successfully. By making an appointment you remain in control. It simply gives you a place to begin asking questions that may have been difficult in the past.
The work in therapy is non-judgemental, open to all beliefs and creeds and the aim is to help with the unfolding of the heart, the development of confidence, self-belief, and the acceptance and exploration of the more difficult and hidden areas that can hold us back from feeling truly free.
The BACP code of ethics is adhered to at all times with regular supervision through a BACP accredited supervisor and Confidentiality is of paramount importance at Affinity.
We can help with many issues including:
