Gambling Counselling

COVID-19 Update: Counselling is still available from Lifeline Northern Beaches – with face-to-face sessions resuming from 11 October 2021. We are also offering counselling via Zoom as telehealth appointments.


Lifeline Northern Beaches offers individual counselling with qualified clinical counsellors in a confidential and safe space with an atmosphere of acceptance and collaboration. Our counsellors work with evidenced based counselling-therapy modalities.


The Gambling Support Service is free for anyone experiencing gambling related harm. This includes gamblers, as well as parents or family members.


Our counsellors are available for specialised, face-to-face counselling sessions in Balgowlah from Wednesday to Friday.


There is no referral required. Simply contact Lifeline Northern Beaches by calling (02) 9949 5522


Lifeline Northern Beaches also offers a Gambling Support Group that may be effective in addition to individual counselling. Find out more about the group by clicking here.

What happens in a counselling session?

Counselling very often involves a process of clarifying the issues, encouraging self-awareness, exploring available options, and developing coping strategies. As well as helping clients to develop the behaviour patterns, skills, tools and techniques to deal with their issues, our face-to-face counsellors may refer clients to additional specialists and services if needed.

What do we assist with?

  • Gaining an understanding about the odds associated with gambling and your chances of winning
  • Skills on how to work with the “urge” to gamble
  • Money management skills
