Gambling Service

Our gambling intervention service offers a range of support to people affected by their own gambling or the gambling of a family member or partner. Support may be through 1:1 sessions or group sessions. Progressive session topics for people affected by their own gambling include:

  • the psychology of gambling
  • tips and strategies for clients to stop gambling
  • information on self-exclusion and blocking software
  • how to engage the support of family and friends to help with stopping gambling
  • alternatives to gambling
  • coping with cravings and urges
  • signposting to debt management.

Partners and family members may attend a session or part of a session dependent on the client’s wishes. They can also be seen alone, whether or not the person who gambles is engaging, in order to learn coping skills and understand the process.
