National Debt Awareness Month

It can be hard to talk about debt.

Most of us don’t even want to think about debt but if you want to build a healthy financial future for yourself and your family then it is good to confront growing debt and do something about it.

Don’t let your debt get out of control.

Talk About It

For several years now Debt Counsellors have been encouraging consumers to think about and talk about debt in February.

Coming out of “Januworry”, can be a real eye opener for those who have been in debt denial. If you are struggling to cope with your debt then the way to deal with it is not to run out and try get more debt. It is to rather end up with less debt.

This is why talking to a professional, NCR registered Debt Counsellor in February may be one of the best financial decisions you ever make.

It can help educate you about what your options are in dealing with debt. Most people are unaware of all the options or how they can take advantage of provisions in the law and in their contracts to deal with debt. Even just professional advice about how we use our money each month can change our future for the better.

Your Annual Debt Check Up

National Debt Awareness Month and speaking to a Debt Counsellor is like going for an annual health check up with a doctor.

A Debt Counsellor can check out your finances and spot any early warning signs of a problem. They can also recommend way to avoid the problem or advise you on how to deal with things if your debt situation is out of control.


Most Debt Counsellor offer this service for free, especially during National Debt Awareness Month.

So, don’t hide from your debt this February. Confront it head on and get to grips with the steps you need to take to get out of debt and build a healthy financial future.
