Gambling Counselling

Samaritans provides gambling counselling in the Hunter Valley and Mid North Coast.

We are a specialised counselling service that provides free and confidential help and support for gamblers and those close to them.

Gambling Counselling can involve individual personal counselling, relationship counselling, family counselling and counselling for grief and loss.

You will not be judged, you will be supported to find your own solutions and it is confidential.

Early warning signs that there could be a problem…

  • More time or money spent on gambling than before
  • Chasing losses
  • Feeling down or irritable after gambling
  • Lying to others about your gambling
  • Withdrawing from other activities and friends or family
  • Money hassles caused by gambling
