    You’ve got this: 10 tips to overcome nerves about seeing a counsellor for the first time

    Hi everyone :);

    I wanted to share with you an interesting blog that we posted on our website "You’ve got this: 10 tips to overcome nerves about seeing a counsellor for the first time."

    Reaching out for help can be absolutely nerve wracking not to mention the guilt and shame we often feel at the same time. Many people often struggle for years and try to manage it alone which can be incredibly difficult and isolating. Managing your gambling can be easier with a bit of help.

    Have a read of the full blog here for our 10 tips on how you can overcome those nerves about seeing a Counsellor.

    We'd love to hear from you if you have been through this process and are happy to share your experience. This could help others to reach out for further support too.
