    Wesley Gambling Counselling provides an individually tailored counselling program, which may include personal or financial counselling, family support and legal services. Our different types of counselling include:

    Legal Services
    These services may be available to people with gambling problems and their families in situations where funds used for gambling have been illegally obtained.

    Personal counselling
    This service helps people to overcome problem gambling. It uses a holistic method of counselling, which includes strategies to establish and maintain change in regular gambling activity and focuses on identifying underlying reasons behind the development of problem gambling behaviour.

    Financial counselling
    Begins with an assessment of your financial situation, in particular, the level of gambling-related debt. Financial counselling uses a variety of strategies, particularly assisting people to negotiate with creditors. The aim is to establish a manageable financial situation but we do not provide funds to repay debt.

    Family counselling
    We provide counselling and support groups for families who are struggling with the negative impact of problem gambling. Assistance is also available for family members in situations where the person with the gambling problem will not seek help.
