Get t0 know your coach…

I spent 37 years as a nurse and senior manager in the NHS, working within physical and mental health settings. I had an incredibly fulfilling career in the NHS and worked with the most amazing and truly dedicated colleagues, helping patients to recover from serious illnesses and achieve their health goals. I feel very privileged to have shared some of the most remarkable journeys with patients and colleagues.

In my second career, I wanted to help people with what has been a long-term hobby and passion for me, finance! Unfortunately, personal finance isn’t taught in school sufficiently or effectively – if at all. It is such an important life skill and money problems are not only a practical issue about being able to afford things but can affect your mental health. For example, worrying about money can trigger feelings of anxiety and panic, and sleep problems, and can adversely affect your social life and relationships.

As your personal financial coach, I want to help you build the financial confidence that enables you to take control of your money and achieve your short- and long-term goals. Making the most of your money really does help you to get the most out of life, whether your goal is to purchase a property, take time off work to look after your children or live off investments and be financially free.

Working with a money coach can help you to explore opportunities for what to do with your money and build confidence in your financial future.
