GET ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS

What is financial coaching?

Financial Coaching is a supplement to financial planning where the “coach”, in a solution-focused partnership with the client, provides financial guidance, and helps to establish and monitor goals. The coach also provides accountability, if goals are not met.

Why do I need a financial coach?

You need a trusted, competent professional who is skilled at objectively assessing your financial situation, with the ability to provide information and sound guidance. There are various reasons to use a financial coach. One of which, is when clients have a financial goal and/or seek guidance to develop a plan of action to accomplish that goal. The financial coach also establishes a climate that is conducive to the client freely sharing financial history, with the assurance of no reprisal.

How can financial coaching benefit me?

There are countless benefits for using financial coaching. The most important is the potential of the client to gain ultimate control of their finances and provide better money management solutions.

Is financial coaching the same as counseling?

Financial coaching differentiates from counseling in that coaching focuses on collaboration, planning, and achieving goals through modification of financial behaviors. While counseling may be interpreted as being more therapeutic, symptom driven and may focus on an acute problem.
