Counselling & Support

GambleAware’s confidential helpline will help you to work out what the problems are and also to gain an understanding of your gambling behaviours. We will also help you to work out your own skills, strengths and ability to change or cope with your situation and gambling behaviour and support you while you go through the process of change.

There are many methods available to help you and all can be tailored to suit specific individual circumstances. These include:

  • Group Therapy Meetings
  • Individual Counselling
  • Meditation and relaxation therapies
  • Videos and lectures
  • Therapeutic duties to develop responsibility, to foster coping skills, to encourage reaching out and sharing.
  • GA Meetings
  • Alternative Therapies
  • Personal Development Classes
  • Family Meetings to help family members to better understand addiction and to assist and support the person progress through recovery.
