Once a referral has been received an assessment appointment is offered. At the assessment you can tell us about your individual situation and agree the treatment that’s best for you.

Following the assessment a qualified clinician will recommend the best treatment available. Here is a list of treatments you may be offered:

  • One-to-one therapy addressing the associated difficulties and underlying causes of problem gambling.
  • Group therapy that helps clients to identify and manage the triggers to their problem gambling, challenge irrational thinking, and find ways to better cope with feelings, thoughts and urges that may begin before a gambling episode.
  • We use the most effective method of treatment called cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). This has been scientifically shown to significantly reduce treated patients' spending on gambling both in the short and long term.  All our patients are assessed for up to 12 months after treatment to review their recovery.
  • Psychiatric assessment and medical management of other mental health problems.
  • Short-term individual work to encourage motivation and life changes.
  • Meetings with our family therapist for partners and family members also affected.
  • Financial awareness programme.
  • Employment support and advice.
  • Referral to appropriate after-care services.
