Are you feeling stuck?
I know how it feels because I've been there
From a young age, my relationship with money has always been fraught with difficulties.
After years of being badly bullied and suffering with eating disorders in my teens, my natural relationship with money was always about control. This resulted in me overspending, undersaving and being driven by emotions.
In later years, when my son, Thomas, was five weeks old he was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis and I was told that I might lose him. It was an awful time but it wasn’t until Thomas came out of hospital that the enormity of it really hit me. I became incredibly anxious and I started overspending.
I’d go clothes shopping and was constantly buying stuff online.
I’m a financial expert so I was able to recognise what was happening and change my behaviour around money before I got into serious debt.
I decided in 2016 to use my knowledge and expertise to help women to be better prepared to deal with situations in their life where they need to take back control and be financially resilient.
Every day I help women like you, to identify their money habits, look after their financial wellbeing.
I am a HUGE believer in managing both the emotions and practical aspects of money.
"I’m on a real mission to encourage women to address those taboo subjects around money and explore the emotional and practical sides of money, rather than just focusing on financial products.
Having worked in banks since the age of 18, I became very disillusioned with the focus on complicated financial products and I'm hugely passionate about helping women to be financially resilient.
Once you have managed the emotions, you can master the practical aspects of making, growing and protecting money. Whether this is creating a spending plan (have I ever told you I HATE the word budgeting!) creating a financial plan for the future or learning how to start investing.
Moving from a feeling of financial lack to financial abundance feels overwhelmingly impossible right now, I know that. But I'm here to show you that you can do it, and to give you the tools and support you need to achieve it, sooner than you think!
