WHAT IS A FINANCIAL COACH?
Money influences so many of our major life decisions, as well as our day-to-day life, and yet we are not taught how to manage it. Many people feel unprepared or anxious around money, and these worries can increase over time as we mature and have more to pay and save for.
A financial coach will help you focus on your goals and streamline your financial commitments so that your money - however much or little of it you have - really begins to work for you.
As a financial coach I help clients challenge their attitude to money so that they feel inspired and motivated to take more responsibility for their financial future. We work collaboratively so that they learn to use their money effectively, and take the appropriate steps, so that they can ultimately reach their goals in life.
A financial coach is to your money what a personal trainer is to your fitness, or a nutritionist is to your eating habits.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FINANCIAL ADVISOR AND A FINANCIAL COACH?
Financial advisors focus on your asset portfolio and provide specific investment and planning advice. You relinquish control of your assets and they manage them for you. They sell investment products and make specific recommendations, investing your funds actively on your behalf. A financial advisor is regulated by the Financial Services Authority.
Financial Coaching provides a safe space for you to explore your own unique circumstance and create tangible steps that best suit you and your lifestyle. Your behaviours are challenged and you find strategies and solutions to better manage your personal finances. A financial coach helps you focus on your own wealth education, growth and decision process. You remain in control by learning how to change mindsets and manage your money smarter to make better informed investment decisions. A financial coach is non-regulated and is there to empower you with knowledge and resources, rather than tell you what to do.
WHY WORK WITH A FINANCIAL COACH?
Do you feel you aren’t good with money or would like to be better?
Do you feel overwhelmed and under-confident when it comes to financial decisions?
Are you holding yourself back from changing your behaviours around money?
Do you feel like you don’t know what options are out there and how to learn what would work best for you?
Are you afraid to look at your bank balance, or can’t even really be bothered to?
Do you think you earn plenty of money, or it should at least be enough, but don’t quite understand where the money goes each month?
Do you feel embarrassed or frustrated by your finances and just need a safe and non-judgmental space to talk things through?
Do your feelings about money affect your relationships? Or your life?
Would you like to build assets for your family’s future but don’t quite know how to?
Do you wish you felt more in control of your money?
