We can support you too

You are not to blame

Living or coping with a loved one who gambles problematically can be stressful and exhausting. You cannot force your partner, family member or friend to acknowledge their gambling problem or to contact us for support they must want it themselves. The only person who can help themselves is the individual. However, we can help support you which will in turn help you support your loved one.

An individual’s gambling behaviour is often hidden from those around them, it can therefore be a shock to you when it comes to light. The effects can be confusing, distressing and long-lasting for those affected. If you feel that you have been affected by somebody else’s gambling, please take our free self-assessment tool today to get FREE confidential support.

“I feel that my therapist has supported and helped me through a difficult time in my life. She has helped me to process and look at things differently.  I would not be where I am now without her help and this service. Thank you”

“The service I received from my therapist helped me to come to terms with dealing with my mother’s gambling issues which reflected on me. I was happy that the sessions started immediately and my therapist was very understanding, empathetic and always positive within the sessions”
