Biography

M y name is Sarah Hennigan, Certified Financial Planner with a difference and my commitment is to help women like you to achieve a healthy, well balanced relationship with your money. With the right money mind-set and the practical knowledge you will be armed with the tools to enable you to align your financial resources with your lifestyle objectives.

I’m a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER with a slightly different perspective on financial advice. This may be a bit controversial but I may aswell put it out there. I don’t believe that financial planning should be about creating a plan so that you can start to live your life in 10, 15 or 20 years time. So, what you won’t hear from me is ‘You need a Pension’.. you may well want or need a pension but that shouldn’t be the starting point.

It’s my belief that financial planning is about so much more than the numbers. Of course cashflow and spreadsheets are incredibly important but fundamentally it’s about your story, your beliefs, your emotions and your heart’s deepest desires. Irrespective of financial means or knowledge of finance, your behaviour with money is shaped by these factors and it’s therefore important that this be the starting point for any type of financial plan.

“Financial Planning has little to do with selling products and everything to do with creating a life that’s truly worth living…right now.”

My approach to financial planning is to combine this deeper understanding with the practical steps that need to be taken, to help you to figure out what is truly important to you, the big why if you like!

Once you have the crystal clear vision in mind then I can help you to create your lifestyle around that and I believe that financial planning is the only way to effectively be able to do this. If you don’t have a grasp on the numbers then you probably won’t be living your ideal life for very long.

For many, this can feel like the least enjoyable part of creating a life plan and it’s often the part that gets neglected in favour of more fun things such as vision boards and positive affirmations. I’m not knocking these methods… they are indeed valuable tools but without action, pretty pointless. Luckily I have a passion for psychology and numbers and will take you by the hand and guide you through this process. The good news is that once you make the decision to take control you have already started to move through the resistance and taken the first step towards the lifestyle of your dreams. It also sends an incredibly powerful message to the universe that you are serious about taking control of your life.

SARAH HENNIGAN, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER

“Once you make the decision to take control you have already started to move through the resistance and taken the first step towards the lifestyle of your dreams”

What you can expect from me is a partner along this journey… I’m not a financial planner who pretends to have all the answers neither will I tell you what is best for you because I happen to belive that you know best about your own life. I won’t sit in judgment about any past money decisions that you have made or any decisions that you want to make for your future. What I can promise is that I will provide you with the space to explore your dreams and your desires, a place where you can start to see the possibility of living your ideal life right now and gradually we will craft a plan that will start to bring these dreams into reality.

This isn’t about me but I should probably tell you about my qualifications and credentials: I’ve worked in Financial Services as an Independent Financial Adviser for over 15 years. I’m a member of the Chartered Insurance Institute, Personal Finance Society, Institute of Financial Planning and am a holder of the internationally recognised CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER qualification. I am also a qualified psychotherapist and, to my knowledge, am the only Certified Financial Planner/Psychotherapist in the UK. With over 10 years experience helping clients with their money, I feel privileged to have had a front row seat to some of their deepest held dreams and desires. We all have the right to live the life of our dreams and money should not be a barrier to enabling us to do this. I believe that armed with a little bit of faith, the right money mind-set and some practical knowledge, this is absolutely possible for each and every one of us and it is this philosophy that I bring into every aspect of my work.
