Counseling for Financial Stresses

Fact 1: Financial stresses can ruin a marriage.
Fact 2: Financial stresses can affect your mental health.
Fact 3: Financial stresses can damage your self-confidence.

According to a survey by Desjardins Financial Security, money or the lack of it is the main source of stress for 44% of the population and it is keeping people from being healthy. Next to smoking, weight, and addiction, financial stress is the most common reason why people seek counseling or therapy.

People always question the practicality of spending money on counseling about a problem caused by the lack of money. But perhaps the best metaphor is a leaky gasoline tank and running empty of gasoline. Yes, you need to have gasoline so that your car will run, but you need to fix the leak as well so that nothing will be wasted.

That is what counseling can do for those suffering from financial stress. It helps the person make sense of the experience, identify the roots of the stress (oftentimes it is not so much money but spending habits and lifestyle choices), discover options, plot a clear financial recovery plan, and find the energy and the drive to make important decisions in life.

As my clients have discovered, counseling is not an expense, it is an investment.

Anyone can carry his burden, however hard, until nightfall. Anyone can do his work, however hard, for one day. Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, till the sun goes down. And this is all life really means.

Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You’ll find what you need to furnish it – memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.
