    Would You Like To Do Your Counselling Placement With Us? Walk Tall provides students of Level 4 Therapeutic Diploma and above, the opportunity to take placement with us. These are our guidelines for those wishing to apply:

    • We require that a placement has already completed at least 140 hours training group contact time before commencing placement. At least 190 contact hours will have been completed by the end of year 1 (for a two year diploma course).
    • Once you take up a placement with us, we expect that you will be completing at least 380 group contact hours of training over the lifetime of your course.
    • We would also expect a minimum of 20 hours mandatory tutor supported, out of class activities/tutorials, by the end of your training.

    Our counselling service receives a large number of applications from traumatised clients facing extremely complex life issues. Our criteria for assessing potential placements who may be working with such clients, are therefore, extremely stringent and set at a high bar. This is in consideration of both client and counselling practitioner.
