Money Coaching – the missing ingredient for better coaching

Money is sometimes the 400kg gorilla in the room. No one teaches people how to think and feel about money. There is plenty of information and advice to guide them on saving, spending, earning and investing money, but precious little about having a healthy relationship with it.

It’s almost as if our attitudes towards money should be instinctively ‘known’, but the truth is that they’re not; they’re learnt, and not always from the best teachers, which might be why money is such a prominent cause of tension in so many relationships.[1]

Make no mistake, money coaching is relationship coaching, and just like in any other human relationship, achieving happiness in connection with money can be elusive for many clients. Simply having money in the bank doesn’t always make people happy money managers, any more than having a spouse always makes them happily married.

Money is the ‘significant other’ in all clients’ lives that they often assume will make them happy just by being there. “The more the merrier,” is what many think, but that’s not always the case. Many clients are held back from fully realising their full potential by ingrained attitudes to money picked up from parents, siblings and significant others.

Money can dredge up challenging emotions or behaviours whenever it’s raised as a subject, and if that’s the case, then you owe it to your clients to be equipped to guide them. Have no doubt about money coaching can save marriages and transform lives.

As a money coach, you can support clients to fulfil their potential as happy spenders, savers, earners and investors, by learning how to communicate honestly and openly with significant others and business associates.

Money coaches look for the clues that shed light on ingrained self-defeating behaviours. They look for the patterns that reveal tensions in individuals and between partners. You will coach clients to gain a deeper understanding of the unconscious beliefs and actions around money that cause them stress, anxiety, and fear.

Our money coaching course includes:

  • Mindfulness and money
  • Money archetypes
  • Work and money values
  • Overcoming financial obstacles
  • Habits that aid goal achievement

And of course:

  • how to coach!

(because money coaching is not just about giving advice.)

Money coaching is about personal empowerment

Coaching is a purposeful partnership between you and the client, but you don’t have to be a whizz at money yourself, or even good at maths, to succeed. In fact, if you’ve had your own money issues you are among those who are often best suited to this type of coaching.

Money coaching provides you with an opportunity to turn your past difficulties into successes, both for you and the people you coach. The more you work with clients, the easier it becomes to stay on track in your own life.

During the eighties and nineties Anne owned a financial planning business called The Financial Woman, which specialised in providing advice to women. Anne had a genuine desire to help her clients and was a pioneer in this field. A lot of financial planning is about selling products and Anne wanted to help a larger market, people who didn’t have money to invest, who were struggling to achieve their financial goals, so she combined coaching with financial planning and developed a course called Financially Free. That course became a runaway best-selling book. During this period in her life Anne appeared regularly in the media as a commentator on money matters and wrote columns for major newspapers and magazines. She also had a regular spot on a daytime TV show.

To this day, Anne still receives requests for referrals to money coaches.

How our Course works

Our life coach training course is conducted by teleconference and these sessions are conducted over 20 weeks.

Most of our students work full time and find that studying by teleconferencing is an easy way to learn.

All you do is call into our conference centre in any capital city in Australia using a landline, mobile or Skype. There are no additional charges except for your normal call charges.

All teleclasses are held at 7.30 AEST and last up to 90 minutes. If you miss a class, we can record it for you.

If you have background noise you can simply mute your phone and the group won’t hear it.

Unlike webinars where you generally just listen, we encourage interaction in our classes because adults learn by doing, and it’s more fun to get to know other members of the group. Coaching practicums are where you get to practice what you learn by coaching another student in a safe and supportive environment.

Our next course starts Tuesday 16 May at 7.30pm AEST.

This course concludes on 29 August. All of our courses have payment plans and these can be found under Enrol Now.


What people say about Anne’s work

I often wonder if I had never discovered your work all those years ago would I have the happy, contented life that I have now. I don’t really think so.
Julie Staples

I’ve never contacted you before but have followed your insights since the late 80’s when I was a single, scared mother with my first mortgage and every day seemed such a fear filled struggle.   I always remember what you said about doing something every week which makes one feel good –  such as  buying a bunch of flowers. Also about what amount of money in the wallet makes us feel rich, and how much do we spend on coffees in a year. These things have stayed with me,  Anne.

Thank you so much – just wanted to say how you’ve continued to influence my life and decisions over the years.

In the 1990’s after reading your book ‘Debt Free’ I was dismissed from my job. Because of the work I had done with your book I was prepared for what was an unfair situation and managed to convert it to a redundancy. The event occurred 30 minutes before I was going to resign. I used the redundancy to pay down debt and began my new job after a week’s holiday. I’m facing job difficulty again but will use the past experience to help me create the best possible outcome.
