Who can Benefit From Independent Financial Coaching?
Everyone can benefit from Financial Coaching regardless of your situation, although some people need our help more than others! We see a lot of different people from all types of situations. Some clients are in financial hardship but most are looking for a mentor to help them to get ahead with their personal and business finances. No client is ever the same.
Everyone needs to know the fundamentals of good personal and business money management and to have a goal in mind to drive them to improve their situation – If you are lacking in either of these areas, you will definitely benefit from the service, regardless of your financial situation now.
To get the most value from the service, you need to be prepared to make change if necessary and believe in your future. As the saying goes “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you have always got”. But it is up to you whether you want help to make that change. Hear what others have said.
Alternatively you may be going through change in your life and need to evaluate your finances and budget. E.g.
- You have taken on too much debt and are facing financial hardship
- you are going through a separation
- you have lost or gained an income source
- you want to plan for your retirement
- you want to combine your finances with your partner
- you’re about to get a mortgage
- your partner has passed away
- you are going to have a new baby
- you have acquired a large amount of money and don’t know what to do with it
If you already think you are good at budgeting, manage your money well and have some firm goals in place, you may just want to use our service to review your plans or purchase the excel budget templates to put it all in writing.

What is My Investment for Independent Financial Coaching?
You need to be able to set aside some time to meet personally with one of our Financial Coaches and be committed to paying for the service. Because we are independent and don’t take commissions we need to charge a fee, unlike many other financial institutions where the advice will be free, but not necessarily independent. However fees are very affordable and there are sliding scales depending on the package you choose or the amount of hourly advice you need. Please contact us for a quote or click here for prices on the do it yourself budget worksheet packages.
We guarantee you will have more clarity and control over your finances and from the action plan developed you will increase your financial situation more than your investment in financial coaching. If after the first hour, you don’t think we can help you, there will be no charge and we can refer you to other services if necessary.
Flexible payment plans are available, and once we have reviewed your current situation we will be able to tell whether you need time for your budget to settle down before payment if you are under financial hardship. If necessary you can delay payment and/or drip feed it off (not available for the do it yourself services which have no follow up as part of the package) while getting your finances sorted.
