Our Team


Our Team:

Our local team is made up of Gambling Outreach Support workers, Prevention Providers and Counsellors.  The list of counsellors is on the GamblingCounselling page


Gambling Outreach Support 

Gambling support is available to anyone looking for a little or a lot of help with their gambling issues, or the gambling issues of a loved one.  We can help navigate what help is available from our program, from online sources and from community organizations. 

We are there to give the level of support the participant needs.  Whether that is just to offer a piece of information or it is accompanying someone to a voluntary self-exclusion or a meeting they are uncomfortable attending alone. 

We are usually the first point of contact for anyone who wants our program's services and will refer people to our clinical counsellors if the person wants those services.

Gambling Support can always be provided with translation services in any language. There are also direct services in Mandarin and Cantonese.

In the Vancouver area, there are 2 Gambling support people, myself and Helen Kwan.  Helen offers support in Mandarin and Cantonese throughout the whole area and also offers English services in Richmond.

The area I cover is Vancouver, NorthVancouver, West Vancouver to Whistler, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody

You can always access our counselling through myself or Helen.  You may want to look at their profiles though to help you decide if you have a preference.
