Expert help for gambling problems

The hospital, on Mansionhouse Road, is running six-week therapy based treatment programmes, designed to address and remove gambling behaviours and compulsions to gamble.

Sessions are available between 9.00am and 1.00pm on Saturday mornings.

Therapists at the hospital will be treating patients on a one-to-one basis to enable each person's individual needs to be addressed.

The hour-long sessions will help participants to understand gambling and its consequences. The cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) sessions are adapted to suit individual needs and goals by challenging unhelpful thoughts and behaviours.

The overall aim of the programme is to equip people with the skills and knowledge to overcome and control their impulse to gamble.

Problem gambling is indiscriminate; around 6 in 1000 people in the UK are affected by problem gambling. Men and women of all ages and from all walks of life can develop levels of problem gambling that can often result in disastrous consequences.

Joe Ramsey, a therapist at the hospital, who is involved in running the sessions, said: "We are inviting anyone who has been affected by problem gambling to come to the sessions. The programme consists of one-to-one sessions to give people the best possible help and care."

"We have deliberately scheduled these sessions for Saturday mornings to allow people to attend without it disrupting their working week."

"Whether it starts with the odd 'flutter on the horses' or high stakes betting, chasing the thrill of the win can adversely affect a person's home and work life, often leaving them depressed, lonely and sometimes even suicidal."

"There are no set criteria for accessing the programme; admitting there is an issue is the first step to overcoming it."
