Gambling addiction therapy: no judgement
It takes courage to admit that you need help. And we want you to know that you will never be judged by one of our Clinicians. We understand that gambling addiction can push people to behaviours outside of their values and morals. But past or current behaviour does not define us as people.
So, while our clinicians might support you to express your regrets and talk about past behaviours (if you feel able to), they will never judge you.
Register today, and book your first personal, online appointment with one of our team of professionally qualified therapists.
Everything within our service is free for you to use, from these self-help pages to the therapy sessions you book. And you don't need to travel to a clinic for your appointment. So you can see that we've removed as many barriers to getting help as we can - to encourage you to take the next step towards your recovery.
Feel ready to take that step and book an appointment today? Then we can assure you that your name, contact details, and everything within your session(s) will remain 100% secure and confidential.
