Psychologists in Melbourne CBD helping gamblers break free

September 25, 2016

With the spring racing season galloping closer every day, now is the time to visit our gambling addiction psychologists in Melbourne CBD to get your betting under control and your life heading in a more positive direction.

The next few months come with a packed agenda of horse racing meets across the state. While they’re a fun day out for most people, they can be a dangerous temptation for those caught in the debilitating grip of problem gambling.

So if your gambling is spiralling out of control and causing a negative impact on the quality of your life and the lives of those around you, then talk to us at Reflection Psychology Group. With an experienced psychologist team in our Melbourne CBD clinic and our other clinics across the city, we will help you walk a positive path away from gambling addiction.

Australians bet a lot of money during the spring racing carnival, with estimates putting the figure at the end of last year’s carnival at well over one billion dollars. It’s a big amount and it takes a heavy toll on those with a gambling addiction.

If you are feeling like you can’t control your gambling, that you’re constantly hitting friends and family for loans, your work performance is deteriorating and your relationships are fraying, then a psychologist experienced in gambling addiction could well be your first step on the journey to recovery. We can help you recognise unhealthy behaviour patterns, work with you to develop strategies so you can effectively understand and manage stress and assist you to break free from debilitating negative thoughts.

A professional psychologist will help clients to understand what triggers their gambling addiction. Perhaps work stress tipped the balance, the loss of a loved one, a financial crisis or a traumatic accident. Whatever the cause, a psychologist can help you uncover the triggers for your addiction and work with you to turn your life around.

At Reflection Psychology Group we don’t judge. We support, we listen and we use our experience and professional knowledge to help you break free from problem gambling’s vicious hold.
