Peter Pallin Dip HE, MBACP reg. Gambling Counsellor.
I am a very experienced counsellor, specialising in gambling addiction, having first been a client.
I have had first hand experience of drug and gambling addictions, as well as many other issues. I don't expect that my experiences were the same as yours, or that I know how you feel before you tell me, however many clients feel more comfortable talking with someone who has faced similar issues.
Training, qualifications & experience
My main training was an integrative counselling diploma of higher education (validated by the University of Ulster), however, when it comes to gambling, my most relevant qualification comes from the 7 years I spent working almost exclusively with gamblers (well over 1000 clients) and those affected by someone else's gambling.
I have also spent a tremendous amount of additional time and effort in reviewing research about gambling issues from around the world.
After a free initial consultation, session costs start at £50 (for a one-off session) and may reduce significantly for session bundles (£200/6 sessions). Telephone sessions and internet protocol video chat are also available (terms on a case by case basis).
If you have a gambling problem, you can easily see another counsellor, but there are few who have anywhere near my level of experience in the field of working specifically with gambling clients.
