Wesley Mission

Gambling and financial counselling for the family member, neighbour or work colleague is free. We tailor our support and assistance to your needs

Long before an addiction has fully developed, gambling can have a negative impact. Gamblers can have a problem without being totally out of control. Problem gambling is any gambling behaviour that disrupts your life. If you're preoccupied with gambling, spending more and more time and money on it, chasing losses, or gambling despite serious consequences, you have a gambling problem.

Our counsellors use specialised personal counselling techniques to help gamblers and their families to overcome problems associated with gambling. Your individually tailored program may include personal counselling, financial counselling, family member counselling and legal services.
