Free and Confidential Advice is Available
There are a number of free and confidential counselling and support services available for individuals experiencing problems with their gambling.
It is important to remember that these services will not judge you or discriminate against you. Their role is to support you and to provide helpful, practical advice to address your gambling concerns.
What to Expect from Counselling
It can be useful to talk to a counsellor who is aware of problem gambling issues and who is committed to supporting you with your decision to alter your gambling behaviour.
A counsellor will work with you to put strategies in place that will help you reach your goal and reduce the risk of returning to gambling. A financial counsellor can also help you sort out your money management and help you devise a plan to repay your debts.
