Head of Gambling Therapy Pedro Romero, will be presenting at WrB the premiere of the revolutionary GT App that will add a unique dimension to service’s ability to connect with and help problem gamblers worldwide. This is the first app of its kind, which also includes mindfulness and cognitive behavioral exercises.

The key features of the Gambling Therapy app are:

  • self-assessment questionnaire

  • text based live support

  • mindfulness and self-help exercises
• crisis support information
• daily motivational quotes

  • links to blocking software

  • directory of organisations that can help
  • access to the GT online forums

Pedro Romero, a psychologist and counsellor and formerly the Head of Operations of an online gambling operator, identified the need for developing a meaningful app with adequate tools and resources.
“We have included multiple self-help features as a first step on the recovery journey for people who are experiencing issues with gambling. This is just the beginning and we hope to get additional support in the near future to develop enhanced interactive features to further improve app usability. We would like to see the GT app in the responsible gambling section of all operators,” said Pedro Romero.

The app is in the process of being submitted to the App store and will be available for IPhone and Android devices very shortly
