Would You Like to complete your Counselling Placement with Walk Tall?
We can offer placements to those working with children as well as those training to work with adults.
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:
- It is important that you have sufficient group interaction hours on your course to enable your successful “beginning practice” to develop in a useful way. 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.
- You can apply for before you have your requisite 140 hours and attend an interview; however you cannot commence your placement until the beginning of the second year of your diploma.
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.
