WEBINAR: Tony10 – The story of Gambling Addiction and Mental Health

May 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Tony is an experienced Addiction Counsellor who specialises in Gambling Addiction. He is a fully accredited member of the Addiction Counsellors of Ireland (ACI) & The Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP). He holds a BSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy with Middlesex University which was completed in conjunction with PCI College.

Tony is an ex Branch Manager with An Post. In June 2011 his gambling addiction came to light when it was discovered that he had stolen €1.75 million from the organisation to fuel his gambling addiction. As a result of this, he was sentenced to 3 years in Prison. While serving his sentence he re-educated himself and trained as a counsellor. His ambition is to use his personal and professional experience to help people struggling with problem gambling and to help make gambling safer for others. In March 2018, ‘Tony10’ was published by Gill books. It is co-written by Tony and tells the story of his gambling addiction highlighting how a €1 bet lead to a turnover of over 10 million in his online account.
Tony works predominately in the therapeutic and treatment areas of Gambling Addiction & Problem Gambling but believes that harm minimisation and education is also vitally important in todays society. He is currently working as an addiction counsellor with Extern Problem Gambling and with a number of organisations delivering workshops and awareness programmes to various businesses, sports clubs and schools in Ireland and the UK.

Join us as SOS facilitator Brian Kelly chats with Tony O’Reilly about his journey through gambling addiction and the impact it had on his life and his mental health.
