People who have a gambling addiction may be likely to:
- miss work or school in order to spend more time gambling
- lose interest in usual activities or hobbies
- withdraw from social activity
- have arguments with friends or family
- lie about their gambling and attempt to hide it from others
- borrow money, sell possessions or steal in order to gamble
- continue to gamble despite negative outcomes
- suffer frequent mood swings
Counselling is a particularly successful treatment for gambling addiction.
At Castle Counselling Services we can offer you a safe, secure, confidential, non-judgemental space to discuss this issue. We can offer you individually tailored Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques, which can help you to understand your gambling more and learn new more healthy ways of managing your urge to gamble.
