Overview

1.  Welcome to Financial Therapy

In FINANCIAL THERAPY you’ll get insights, guidance and support for you and your money, in a way you have probably never really got before. So, join me and a diverse band of experts in a bigger conversation about us and money.

2. Money ... the last taboo

Talking about money in an open and frank way is really the last taboo. For most of us, money is a relationship (often tricky) that we cannot say adios to. Unless of course, you are the Queen of England or the Dalai Lama (who have no personal need for money) you are most likely going to be transacting, interacting and sometimes combating with it till the day you die. So understanding a little more about how you relate to money can go some way in making this relationship a little more harmonious.

3. Shame, deserving and worthy bias ... just a small conversation about money

How do governments, non-for-profits and even us, deal with adversity and what are the impacts that adversity has not only on our financial lives but on our sense of self-worth. We’ll look at who deserves what when it comes to the public purse and what are the hard decisions care organisations have to make with limited resources for those that face adversity. We’ll also be delving into an unconscious bias that we know exists, but often don’t want to talk about. It’s called ‘worthy bias’, who do we deem as being worthy of society time, money, resources and like.

4. Money & Women ... the good, the bad and the structural inequality

A lot of research is now saying that psychological and behavioural factors make up the majority of us being better with money at around 61%. Having self-control, feeling confidence in money management skills, good modelling when we were growing up and the like. So it’s not surprising we are seeing more Financial Psychotherapists or Financial Psychologists that can help.

5. Money & Climate Change ... the psychology of inaction

Here to help us discuss the issue is Mairéad Cleary, a psychotherapist, and eco-enthusiast, whose therapeutic practice and working with clients is informed by a nature-based philosophy, which she believes is vital to better mental health.

6. Financial Abuse ... it can happen to anyone

We are speaking with Dr Jozica Kutin, a Senior Researcher at RMIT University and the Victoria Law Foundation. who turned her deep fascination about why this is happening to young people, to leading a team at the University to develop a toolkit for young adults about money and love.

7. Money on the Road Less Travelled ... the Conductor / Composer

In this episode of Financial Therapy, we are going to explore what inspires people to choose say their passion, over a regular paycheck. We’re heading out to discover what money is like on the road less travelled, where individuals make less standard choices about how they make money, and what are the driving forces that inspire them to do so.

8. Money Neuroscience ... Hack Chemicals in your Brain to be Better with Money

In this episode, we delve into money neuroscience and how we can hack happy chemicals in our brain to get us being better with money.
