Money – often an awkward subject that can lead to stress, feelings of anxiety, can cause arguments, or make you feel embarrassed when you need to ask for help.
Talking about what you earn, or discussing debt is extremely personal and not something we are generally comfortable with sharing – even with our nearest and dearest it can be challenging.
But money worries impact hugely on our quality of life. Whether we have enough of it and don’t know how use it wisely, or we’re barely scraping by and need our money to go further and last longer, it pays to have some sound advice from someone impartial who understands how to better manage money – particularly as the financial landscape of the country is currently so changeable and uncertain.
In its recent health and wellbeing survey, Ben, the automotive industry charity, discovered that 1 in 5 automotive people are struggling to keep up with the rising cost of living, with energy, petrol and food bills at an all-time high.
|One of the tools that Ben offers to those seeking support is access to its freeLife Coaching service.

A member of the automotive community who is already benefiting from the service shared, “It’s been good to have someone neutral to talk to, someone to give me a different perspective, new strategies and tools to use.
