What we do

Anonymous & free of charge

Our counselling is anonymous and free of charge. This means that you do not have to pay anything and you do not have to give us your name.

Support for relatives

It is important to have an honest conversation with the person you are concerned about. You can support them by, for example,

  • showing interest in them as a person and not just their problem.
  • not trivialising their problem.
  • directly addressing concerns.
  • sticking to consequences (no empty threats).
  • setting clear boundaries.
  • not lying for the gambler.
  • taking the affected person to get help.
  • getting yourself some support and advice.

Important: The situation is not your fault!
