Speaking to a gambling counsellor is another way for you to get support whether you are concerned about your gambling or another’s.
People can have many reasons to talk to a gambling counsellor:
- to feel better, happier, healthier.
- to explore and manage urges.
- to look at what is important in their lives and reassess their priorities.
- to improve or repair a relationship.
We support people to figure out their goals and ways to achieve them. We provide a range of helpful resources and information, including face-to-face counselling, telephone counselling, online support, self-help workbooks and education material, support groups, self-exclusion and external referrals.

“Help from the ACT Gambling Support Service was incredibly helpful. It was nice to know there was no cap and I could come as long as I need to as I think that impacts. Seeing someone in the first place and being told you can only come three times doesn’t help. The freedom and flexibility to see someone as long as I needed was fantastic”.
“The ACT Gambling Support Service team helped with my addiction a great deal. I have not gambled for over a year already. I feel great about that. It has changed my life a lot. The counsellor was a great support and help to me. Thank you so much”.
