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.

Member organisations *
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
