If you feel you need more support, then follow your gut. You may have unearthed core wounds that a therapist or counsellor can help you understand, process and heal.

If you’re unable to achieve (or even begin) your money goals, or are curious to learn more about your money patterns, then behavioral money coaching can help. Working with another person enables you see your blindspots. I use a gentle, holistic process to help you examine your relationship with money from multiple angles so you can get to the root of the issue once and for all. This is where significant change happens. This is usually best if you:
- Have tried to change a money behavior several times but nothing works longterm
- Feel highly emotional when thinking about money (such as conflicted, unsupported, fearful, avoidant), and
- Are comfortable examining your history to understand how it relates to your current behaviours.
