Starting the process to receive debt advice can often seem like a challenging experience. Talking to somebody about your debt problems is not easy but it is the first stage in regaining financial control.

Email from Somebody We Helped
On behalf of my husband and I, I would like to thank you for all that you did a few weeks ago to help us into the road of recovery from our debt difficulties. We're now moving forward and we will be paying £350 a month instead of well over £1000 and will at the end of the journey be left with no debt apart from the mortgage. It's such a relief to feel that, although we haven't got money to go out and spend particularly and we need to be careful, we know that all the bills are going to be paid and that we are paying off debts instead of throwing interest payments at them. I'm also now paying the secured loan off monthly and that is starting to decrease before our eyes.
Reaching out to you guys was one of the best things I could have done. I'm so glad that you gently pursued me after I had filled in your online form as I was nervous about talking to someone in person, but your friendly way was just what I needed. Although I can't pretend that all this has been easy at all you made it painless.
You have not made me feel at all embarrassed about the position we ended up in which has meant a lot because I was already feeling a huge amount of embarrassment and guilt about ending up in financial difficulty when I earn a good wage when there are people out there with next to nothing.
I really appreciate this chance to sort ourselves out financially, we will continue to value it, work hard to get it all sorted out and hopefully never end up in the position where we need help again.
Thanks again, you've made a very big difference to our family.
