Default Gambling

Hello Stephen;

Just had my first client with a major problem in Gambling - spends everything he earns.

I chose direct suggestion and endevoured to offer the client positive suggestions regarding the benefits of stopping gambling; similar to smoking.

So far the client has reduced the level of gambling over the first two sessions; but doesn't seem confident about completely giving up.

I am not sure where to go next? May I ask you for some ideas regarding the therapeutic stratagy going forward?

Thank you Stephen
