About Support Groups

Gambling Therapy support groups are text-based, with automatic translation available if required.

Joining an online support group can help you to find perspective and connection. Talking to others who may be in a similar position to you, hearing how others have handled their own situation and sharing your story with others will help you to build strength and resilience.

Gambling Therapy groups are run by experienced facilitators – either peer support workers who have faced gambling issues in their own lives, or by trained psychologists and therapists. You will be made very welcome if you decide to try out a group.
