UCMH Counselling for anyone affected by problem gambling

Like us on Facebook PM Counselling (previously UCMH/UnitingRecovery) is a division of Parramatta Mission. We were originaly known as UCMH and were in the process of changing our name to Uniting Recovery when it was decided to streamline all services into our parent organisation. PM Counselling services has offices in Gosford, Manly Vale, Fairfield, Bankstown and Parramatta. You can contact our head office and central intake line on (02) 9891 6212. Same people, same great service.

Gambling can have severe impacts on an individual. The financial impact alone can be devastating with the loss of assets, the pressure of mounting bills, and possible bankruptcy. The psychological impacts are also considerable--the person who gambles can feel out of control, worried about their future, guilty about their behaviour, and stressed, trapped, and depressed

The family and loved ones of gamblers can also experience significant distress as a result of gambling. Trust is eroded when family members find out that money has been lost, secrets have been kept or promises have been broken. Conflict can arise and family and friends can be bewildered about how to help, and may feel powerless in the face of gambling.

PM Counselling Services are here to help you to understand the problem and gradually master it so that you can lead a more fulfilling lifestyle, feel better about yourself, share better relationships, and enjoy financial stability. We offer a friendly, professional service that supports clients to choose and develop their own unique recovery journey, based on strength, hope and holistic wellbeing.
