Frequently Asked Questions

What does a financial counsellor do?

Let’s say you want to lose weight. You can join a gym or try a new diet. For some, this will work. But most people won’t succeed on their own.

Your other option is to hire a personal trainer to guide and motivate you and give you specific strategies to help you lose weight. Their job is to help you learn what will work best to meet your fitness goals and provide accountability, so you stay on track. A personal trainer will also help you to identify the barriers to your fitness goals.

Can you help me fix my credit?

Yes. I’ll teach strategies you can use that will clean up your credit report and transform it into one that you’d be proud to share.

Not necessarily. Most times I am able to find money in my clients’ budget for them to enjoy the things that they truly love. 

 

Do I need to be good at math to work with you?

If you can add 2 + 2, then I can help you.
