Frequently Asked Questions
What is an example of a session?
We start sessions by discussing what you would like to achieve from our sessions and what your budget worries are. We there go through your current spending and discuss what is important to you. From there I help you make a budget and assist you in completing any payments that need to be made and we track your spending. A budget without tracking your spending is pointless. We will also help you with your understanding of things such as banking, income, bills.
