Practice in a hallway so that you can still balance but you can't rely on a wall to rest on or hold any of your weight.
You can still walk down the hallway using all the same muscles, but balancing with your feet by wearing socks so your feet will slide down with you. You then get the feeling of guiding your body in the forward direction without a spotter directing you.
It is even more important to focus on body shape when walking, a rigid abdomen and squeezed glutes are essential. Lastly, make sure you look at your hands to see where you are going.
