Financial Coaching

Financial stress is sadly becoming very widespread. In a recent poll, over half the people questioned said they were “stressed” about their finances. Yet asking for help can be difficult and knowing who you can trust can be even harder.

Financial challenges can occur at many times in our life - getting married or separating, taking time away from work because of illness or raising a family, buying or selling a home, unusual or unexpected expenses, transition to retirement, redundancy or reduced work hours or the passing of a partner or spouse.

Understanding financial concepts can be very confusing. Our financial coaches provide confidential guidance and support to expertly and respectfully guide you back to financial control.


How can financial coaching help you?

Financial coaching will help you understand and manage your money, by:

  • teaching you financial skills that will last your lifetime
  • creating a personalised action plan to manage your debt
  • informing you on how to approach & negotiate with your creditors
  • giving you practical information on your options and rights
  • providing tools to help manage financial conflicts within relationships


What will happen when you speak to a financial coach?

During your first appointment, the coach will gain an understanding of your current financial position and what is important to you. The focus of this appointment is to identify the areas that require attention and start to create a resolution for you. Financial matters are very individual, so your appointment is tailored to suit your personal requirements.

The coach can work with you on a varied range of topics. Some of those may include:
