Walk Tall Counselling Services
Our professional service has 30 therapists, both male and female. Walk Tall provides therapeutic counselling for a wide range of difficulties. Our counsellors have a broad range of expertise and specialisms, including addictions, bereavement, couples, children and young people.
Our therapists have previous experience within community drug and alcohol services, inpatient rehabilitation services, schools, doctors surgeries, charities, hospices, colleges, private practice and within Walk Tall.
We provide both short term and open-ended counselling. The service is flexible and can accommodate daytime and evening sessions 6 days a week in Dartford and Gravesend town centres.
Our therapists are trained in several different theoretical approaches. This means that our counsellors can provide the therapy needed to tailor your sessions to meet your individual needs and goals (please see the types of therapies we offer below).
Walk Tall offers affordable counselling to adults, children, young people and couples.
All of our counsellors are members of the BACP or UKCP and therefore adhere to their ethical and professional framework. Our counsellors also hold valid DBS certificates.
