What IS Financial Wellbeing?
According to the CFPB, financial well-being is defined as the state wherein an individual has a sense of:
Control over day-to-day and month-to-month finances;
Capacity to absorb a financial shock;
Being on track to meet financial goals;
And the ability to make financial choices to enjoy life.
Health Wealth and Happiness

What is financial coaching?
As the name implies, financial coaching is aimed at coaching you to financial health. I work to educate you on the building blocks of personal finance and enable you to become much more financially literate. You may need help budgeting, reducing debts and creating a liveable financial plan.
My goal is to empower you to make good financial decisions and take control of your own financial choices.
So if you would like some guidance understanding the fundamentals of your financial health rather than recommendations regarding investments and managing portfolios then Financial Coaching may be for you.
You find long-term financial planning too confusing, too technical and to intimidating
Hi, I am Tony Pound an Independent Financial Adviser and Money Coach. I have worked in financial services for over 30 years, from being an employee to becoming self-employed and having my own clients that I look after in the way that I want to.
I can’t stand jargon and prefer a straight talking approach to money.
I want to demystify finances, so that you are able to gain financial independence and to be able to make informed decisions about improving your future. You can gain the freedom to choose when you work, where you go and what you do. Which all comes from getting your financial planning sorted.
Using my experience and powerful financial planning software, together we can forecast your financial future, showing how on-track you are towards meeting your goals.
