Having ability to live a life with joy and enjoyment is a skill. Some people have it naturally, most people have to work at it.

Some people really enjoy the life that they are in, many people struggle to put up with the life they have.

Counselling can help to bring the reality of what you want to the life that you have. 

I help problem gamblers to help themselves to stop gambling. All gamblers really do have control of their gambling; whether they use that control is their decision. Counselling can help that control be used.   For further information please see my  other website at:    www.counsellingexeter.co.uk

Gambling counselling online.  Do you want to change gambling problems?   Brian Dennis Counselling.


 I offer counselling via the internet to clients who have gambling problems and want to stop gambling.  I am a professional counsellor practising in UK and worldwide by internet.


Many gamblers will think that they do not have money to pay counselling to stop gambling. Then they continue gambling, which loses more money. Stopping gambling can be a one-time change of life, which may take time and be difficult to do. Each gambler has to make their own decision to stop, or to continue.

If you wish to stop, I can help you. I cannot garantee it will happen, that will be your effort and decision. Stopping gambling will change your life.


Gambling can be a fun occupation for some people. Other people find that gambling can be a problem. It can destroy relationships, family trust and friendships; as well as having a destructive financial impact on the gambler's and other lives.

In some ways 'gambling', or taking a chance, is natural to humans - it is how primitive mankind survived. Humans tried various foods and lifestyles;  if they guessed correctly they survived, if incorrectly they might not. 

Gambling is an industry which, cleverly, appeals to some people to gamble. Gamblers know that they are more likely to lose than to win, however they fool themselves into believing that they are likely to win - against the odds.

The gambling industry uses many techniques and tools to influence people towards making irrational decisions to gamble, or continue gambling.


Nobody was born as a gambler, it is not a physical habit or 'addiction'. Therefore it is a habit which was learned and can be changed. Accepting that habits, including gambling, can be changed is often a large part of the process of stopping gambling. One useful example of habits for many people is the way they fold their arms - a simple habit, usually learned at a young age. Many people will find it difficult to change the way they fold their arms to the other manner, yet it is only a habit. Realising that people can change that habit opens the possibility that they can change, and stop, their gambling habit.


In counselling we work to understand the gambling habits and tendencies. We work towards building motivations to stop gambling. Changing the habit of gambling can be difficult for many people, they may be battling against a long-term habit which is also an inbuilt natural tendency.


Stopping gambling is possible, if the motivation is there and the counselling is really used and engaged with by the client.
