WHY FINANCIAL COACHING?
Have you educated, counseled and developed a plan for your client, but they are still stuck in those familiar unhealthy financial patterns?
Financial coaches facilitate the client’s progress using skills and techniques to support lasting financial behavior change. In a coaching engagement, your clients create their own solutions and build and implement an action plan that works for them.
Financial Coaching is…
- An approach that builds upon a strong foundation of financial knowledge.
- A relationship in which client and coach collaborate on the ground rules.
- Client-centered goal setting.
- Focused on behavior change.
- Accountability between client and coach.

FFC® Certification Program
"The FFC® is the perfect complement to the AFC®. After acquiring the foundational financial information needed to be of value to my clients, the FFC® allows me to partner with clients in a way that gives them a safe space to journey deeper into their relationship with money. Rather than telling the client what to do, I have the privilege of experiencing the why they do what they do on their journey to how they plan to change."
