As an Accountant, Vanessa's strengths lie in her ability to make a connection between the numbers and the people whose lives are entwined with them. Her vast experience has shown her that by enabling people to take control of their money, and set financial goals around their priorities, she can provide them with the opportunities and sense of life purpose they desire. It is Vanessa’s philosophy that people should be empowered by their financial position and knowledge surrounding money, not controlled by it. It is her deep understanding and commitment to arming her clients with financial strategies, and money skills that results in them making confident decisions to build opportunities and get the most out of life.

Vanessa makes even the most complex strategies seem simple and she loves introducing practical tools that are easy to implement and save you time so you can get back to the important things.  Vanessa does enjoy challenging her clients and taking them slightly out of their comfort zone as she believes this is where the real personal growth happens.  To transform your finances or give them a good overhaul takes courage and Vanessa is here to support and guide you through that often unnerving journey.

Having a good relationship with money is something that requires constant attention and maintenance.  It’s not just about the financial knowledge, know-how and discipline, but more importantly your mindset which has a direct impact on your financial decisions every day.  To truly achieve your goals, financial and otherwise, Vanessa believes you need to master your mindset, understand your barriers and have clarity and self-awareness in order to achieve harmony and balance in all areas of your life.
