‘Gambling: The sure way of getting nothing for something.’ – Wilson Mizner
The number of people with gambling addictions has been growing rapidly. An NHS report showed that there may be as many as 593,000 in the UK with a gambling problem. The odds are that the actual number is even higher.
One of the major factors is use of the internet and apps to gamble. Gambling is now more accessible and easier to do, anytime, anywhere and at the touch of a button.
Gambling may start off small but can easily get out of control. Many of Jo’s clients had seen their lives devastated by a gambling addiction. They came to Jo when they had decided that they wanted to change but didn’t know how. Like so many other addicts, problem gamblers have lost control over their lives. They want to regain that control.
By using a combination of techniques, Jo has successfully helped thousands of clients to achieve the positive change that they desire.
