About us

Walk Tall's Counselling Service is coordinated by our highly skilled and experienced management team who oversee our dedicated group of 23 counsellors and psychotherapists who encompass many different counselling abilities and approaches. We believe the breadth and depth of our experience means we are exceptionally well prepared to meet the variety of needs and issues that you might bring.

Based in Northfleet, Kent, we extend our services across Kent and into South East London.

Walk Tall Counselling offers the following services:

  • To young people aged 5-19 who are not able to access counselling within full-time education, training or employment, and who are on a low income we offer FREE counselling. This service is kindly funded by Children in Need.
  • To adults and young people not included in the Children in Need criteria, we offer a LOW COST counselling service. Typically we can ask as little as £10 per session and up to £30:00 dependant on income.
  • To individuals, schools and other organisations, we offer our Outreach Service where we can second a counsellor or counsellors to your location and conduct sessions with your pupils/staff members/other affiliates.
