We help you have the best relationship with money you possibly can so that you can build a happy and successful life.

Let me explain.

The world is about relationships and your relationship with money is the longest relationship you will ever have.

It’s also the one relationship that causes us the most grief in our life if we don’t get it right.  It can ruin our personal relationships, it can ruin our business, and it can ruin you retirement.

Financial Success is about more than numbers. We understand the psychology of money – as well as the numbers.

How do we do that?

We help you understand the choices you make around money; why you’ve been making them and how to make better ones.  This includes understanding your emotions and the stories you’ve been telling yourself about money (your beliefs).

The focus is on the psychology of money (your mindset), understanding your relationship with money and developing practical financial management systems.

What do you mean emotions??

If you have cash in your wallet right now, take out a note and have a look at it.  It’s just a piece of paper.  It has a picture of someone famous on it, a few words and a number.  That’s what money is; it’s a tool.

In real terms, it is a medium of exchange created because bartering got a bit tricky, e.g. how do you value your cow when you want to swap it for a sack of grain.

Sounds all very rational doesn’t it and it kept the economists happy.  But the economists forgot a very important point.  We aren’t rational!  So, when we see the piece of paper with pictures and numbers on it, we see a lot more than a tool to buy stuff.

We see all sorts of emotions and meanings.  And it’s different for men & women.

You deserve to be happy. It’s far easier to make others happy when you’re happy
and to help others, when you’ve helped yourself. 

It’s time to take control

Don’t let your old money mistakes define your future.

  • Do you love the idea of being financially secure but don’t feel you’re getting there?
  • Do you want to understand why your money seems to just disappear?
  • Did you think you’d be out of debt by now but still have big debts?
  • Are you going through a major change in your life and want to make sure you’re financially equipped to handle it?
  • Do you want to know how to talk openly about money without starting a family fight?
  • Do you always feel you need more, even though you’re earning more?
  • Do you think you hold on to money too tightly and it’s stopping you enjoying life?

"Lynda Moore"

A co-founder of Money Mentalist with a post-graduate in psychology. Lynda has also studied money psychology under psychiatrist Dr David Krueger MD, Houston, USA.

With more than 20 years in her own accounting practice, Lynda brings unique business abilities and an in-depth financial professional background to her integration of psychology and neuroscience with Mentor Coaching.

“I have felt your pain and frustration.  I have been there.  I have badly managed my money, very badly in fact, I was $600,000 in debt.  And me an accountant!  Looking at my numbers it was easy to spot, I simply over spent.  But knowing my numbers didn’t explain how I got myself in that mess – or how to get out of it.

After a good deal of research, I discovered that it’s more than just numbers that drives our money behaviour; money has a secret language.  You see, if it was all about numbers, life would be simple.  But it’s not because money is emotional.  That was the ‘aha moment’!

When I realised if money is emotional, then we need to look at our mindset, our money mindset – technically called our money psychology.  And that sent me back to university to find the answers and later, studying money psychology under psychiatrist Dr. David Krueger.”
