I’m a big fan of debt counselling

I know many people are nervous about going to a debt counsellor and imagine it’ll be like
being in the headteacher’s ofce at school. But they’re not judgmental — they’re not there
to tell you of, just to help you sort the problem. Many people say afer help, “I fnally got a
decent night’s sleep.”
