Is your relationship with money causing stress in your life? If so, then it may be time for some financial therapy. Winnipeg-based psychologist and life coach Dr. Moira Somers specializes in financial psychology, an emerging field that explores people’s relationship with money (and why they may treat it the way that they do).
Dr. Somers maintains that our behaviour towards money may stem from our childhood experiences including exposure to money management beliefs and culture. These beliefs in turn causes many disordered behaviour in our adult lives such as chronic debt, overspending, under-earning and using money as a means (whether consciously or not) to exercise power, control or to fill a void.
