I believe my role involves helping clients understand themselves so that they can make purposeful decisions about their lives.
It feels that the last 10 years has been a journey of learning and self-reflection. My role now involves more than just financial planning: I’m consulting, coaching, organising and empowering. No two days are the same. But I am delighted to have reached a point where I now feel I am able to bring about the maximum impact for each individual client.
