UCMH Counselling Services changed it's name to Uniting Recovery Counselling
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.
UCMH 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.
