Groups for Sunday 17th January 2021
Online Gambling Therapy Support Groups
We run regular groups on a range of subjects for both problem gamblers and their friends and families. You don’t need to be the fastest or best typist in the world; just log into a group to feel welcomed and accepted by your peers and representatives of Gambling Therapy. We have recovery and support groups that are facilitated by trained and experienced support workers, and groups that are peer-run and friendly. In order to use our groups please register or sign in. Below you’ll find a calendar showing all of the different types of groups we run and the times we run them. All you need to do to access a group is to hover over the group you want to attend at the correct time and click on the green “join” button that appears when a group is open.Some groups have 15 minute entry times to allow for a discussion to flow without interruption other groups do not have entry times. However, if you have to leave a group for some reason and you want to come back in you still have the option to rejoin 🙂
