We know it can be hard to deal with gambling problems by yourself and talking to someone independent can help. Our counsellors are there to support you to talk about why you may be experiencing problems with gambling and together help you to make a change.
All of our staff are trained counsellors and psychologists who specialise in the treatment of gambling problems and we offer one-to-one, couple, family and group counselling at locations across Bayside, South Eastern Melbourne and the Peninsula.
Our free and confidential counselling service is available to anyone experiencing gambling-related harm – including family and friends and our counsellors can support you for as long and as frequently as you need.
Gambling issues will affect different people in different ways. It may be losing more money than you can afford or negatively impacting your relationships with the people you care about.
For many people, gambling is just the tip of the iceberg rather than the root issue. The majority of our clients don’t spend all of their time talking about gambling and we often explore.
For some people, gambling issues may be one factor in complex personal and health problems. Mental health, drug and alcohol, family and relationship, youth and corrections problems often co-occur with gambling issues. Although you may come to Gambler’s Help for assistance with a gambling issue, we may link with other specialist services in order to offer holistic support.
You can expect to make an appointment with us within one week and we offer face to face, phone or video counselling.
Bookings are available Monday to Friday between 9am – 5pm. There is no limit on the number of sessions available.
