Gambling Treatment

Free, confidential support for problem gamblers: see information about our Gambling Service.

Ara’s confidential 1:1 counselling with trained experts are here to help. We ask you to complete a short assessment and you will then be referred to telephone or in-person sessions. These can be arranged during the day and in the evenings to fit around your work schedule.

Our most important message is people suffering gambling harms are not alone.

There are an estimated 30,000 people with experiencing disordered gambling in Wales alone.

This doesn’t include those at risk of developing harm, or the average of 7 affected others who also experience harms from another’s gambling. We provide services in the regions of Wales, Wiltshire, Bristol, Gloucestershire, Cornwall and Somerset.

Please get in touch via our Get Support page or give us a call on 0330 1340 286

What support is on offer?

We have a range of interventions on offer, but our most important one is to listen.

  • Welsh and English language counsellors and materials are available
  • Self-exclusion tools and toolkits that help people re-evaluate their relationship with gambling
