Let’s start with what I am not – I am not a financial adviser, I am not regulated and therefore am not going to sell you any financial products. This means that you can be safe in the knowledge that I have absolutely no hidden agenda and do not financially benefit in any way other than what I charge for my time. (disclaimer over, now we can proceed…)
STANDING BY YOUR SIDE
First and foremost, I am your supporter. The person you can talk to about money - a subject many people feel they cannot discuss with their friends, family or with their partner. I am here to listen to your concerns, always without judgement. To stand by you as you go on your journey of taking control of your money.
Think of me as a coach or personal trainer for your wallet/purse. I am as much a wellbeing professional as a dietician or a mindfulness teacher. I help you look after your wellbeing by taking away the stress associated with money and consequential ill health that results from stress.
YOUR MONEY WORKING FOR YOU
I am a firm believer that as we each only have one life to live we should make the most of it. Many of us get caught up with what we ‘should have’, what we ‘should do’, who we ‘should be’ rather than want we truly want. Some get into debt by spending money on status symbols that they don't intrinsically value. There is nothing wrong with big houses, fast cars, foreign holidays, or anything else that we may take fancy to, provided we really want them and can afford them without undue stress. But in many cases the debts produce stress that can potentially shorten our lives. Losing sleep and feeling overwhelmed with big financial burden is not the best recipe for a happy long life. I am here to support you in working out what it is that you want and how can you structure your money to get it.
DREAMS COME TRUE
We all have dreams, as unique as we are. It is not my place to tell you what these should be. What I can do is help you work out a financial plan on how to make them happen. For some people it will be as wild as selling up a family home, buying a caravan and travelling, for some it will be setting up a fund for their children’s education, for others, leaving their unfulfilling career and starting afresh. Whatever that dream, I can help you get closer to it. Together we will (re)discover what is most important to you and align your financial actions to your dreams.
