Are you regularly losing hundreds or thousands of Euros every week or month? Do you frequently lose your wages on or around payday? Is your gambling impacting on your relationships or work? Is your gambling affecting your mental or physical health? Is your gambling making it hard for you to think clearly or sleep at night? Are you ready to prioritise getting well, over chasing losses and spiraling out of control? Then you've come to the right place. We can help. We are Ireland's only specialist service, dedicated to treating gambling addiction. Just remember, whatever course of action you take - You will not gamble your way out of a gambling problem.
The Gambling Clinic is a trading arm of the Extern Problem Gambling Project (formerly Problem Gambling Ireland). We provide specialist CBT treatment for gambling addiction/problem gambling, in Ireland. Currently, due to Covid restrictions, all counselling sessions are delivered by video call. This means that you can access specialist treatment, from anywhere in Ireland. If you live in an area with poor broadband coverage, we can provide counselling by phone call.
We provide a 10-session CBT Treatment Program, which can be paid for on a session-by-session basis (€70 per session). Treatment is provided by fully-qualified and accredited addiction counsellors, Tony O'Reilly (MACI) and Barry Grant (MAPCP). All payments show on your bank statement as, 'Extern Therapy Services'.

Deal with Triggers to Relapse in real-time
