The aim of problem gambling counselling is to provide an opportunity for you to work towards increasing your well-being by becoming free of problem gambling.
When a client comes to us with a gambling problem the first and most important step is to help them cut down or stop gambling altogether, depending on their individual goals and needs. To this end, we examine practical ways of dealing with “triggers” to gambling, develop strategies for avoiding temptation, and look at options for managing your motivation so as to minimise opportunities to gamble.
We adopt a “two-tier” approach by working with you to explore the origins of the problem and the underlying reasons why you gamble. Gambling insight and understanding helps you come to terms with the problem and overcome it.
The most obvious goal is working towards a reduction or complete abstinence of gambling. As you gain insight you learn to deal with your urges and triggers, which result in making better choices and changes to your previous pattern of behavior.
We only provide Telehealth counselling using a choice of platforms to meet your needs. Our Counsellors are trained to use Zoom, Microsoft Teams, FaceTime and Telephone.
