Gambling Services launching in early 2016

I am very pleased to announce that I will be launching two gambling addiction support/treatment services in early 2016.

The first, www.problemgambling.ie, is a free resource for anybody whose life has been negatively affected by gambling. It will be the first resource of its kind to be independent of the gambling industry.

The second, www.thegamblingclinic.ie, will be Ireland’s first dedicated gambling addiction treatment resource. It will be a CBT treatment over 9 sessions. The initial assessment session will last 90 minutes, while the remaining sessions will last 1 hour. Clients will be provided with a manual/workbook, which is empirically based. The treatment model is similar to the UK National Health Service’s National Problem Gambling Clinic model.
