What is counselling and how does it work?

Gambler’s Help counsellors provide a safe place for you to feel like you are being heard. During COVID19 isolation, free and confidential counselling services remain available over the phone or online. These sessions are also available to the family and friends of those who gamble.

In this video, therapeutic counsellor, Jake Newstadt dispels some common fears and explains what really happens when you receive counselling through Gambler’s Help.
