Clients may be offered individual, couple, family or group counselling sessions. Gambling Help employs professional psychologists and social workers to discuss issues and concerns in a safe, confidential and accepting environment.
The counsellors will assist clients to draw on their own strengths and resources, enabling them to resolve problems. It is the development of this partnership between client and counsellor which will reap the greatest benefits.
For counselling to be successful clients must recognize that it is not a magic fix. Clients should commit to a minimum of 4-6 sessions in an attempt to effect a resolution for their problems.
People attending counselling benefit from the opportunity to talk to someone who listens and cares and who can provide information assistance and guidance.
