New Group Counselling Sessions for Women in London

27th May 2016

We are offering new group counselling sessions designed especially for women in London.

The number of female counselling clients treated by GamCare and our national network of partner agencies almost doubled between 2013-2015, so we are now developing new services for women affected by problem gambling.

GamCare Counsellor, Akum Uwahemu, says: “We know that our female clients often find it hard to understand why they gamble, and why they are unable to just make themselves stop when it causes so many problems.

For many women, the need to gamble may be influenced by difficult emotional experiences in the past. Group sessions can explore the impacts of gambling as well as what motivates problem gambling behaviour, and you can hear from and support others in similar situations.”

GamCare’s new women-only group sessions will take place at our Clapham Junction office. The group will last 16 weeks, running every Wednesday from 12.15pm to 1.45pm, starting on 8th June.
