Self-sabotaging money habits keep your clients stuck and prevent positive financial change. As life coaches, each of you understand that enabling your clients to make life changes is not the answer. Instead, the most effective approach is to empower your clients to end self-sabotaging habits and make financial change themselves.
The following tips for life coaches introduce you to the Financial Social Work model and its process for helping life coaches empower clients to achieve sustainable financial change. The FSW model goes well beyond programs which educate life coaches on how to talk to people about money. Instead, as you discover in the Financial Social Work certification, this model teaches you to incorporate multiple therapeutic modalities within an interactive, introspective behavioral model of financial education.
