I like helping people with their financial issues. I used to work in a bank and saw the other side of chasing debts. I’m quite strict with my own finances. It makes me feel a great sympathy for people struggling with un-clearable debts.

Debt Counsellor, Advice Portsmouth

I have worked in the debt sector for 22 years. It still gives me great satisfaction when I complete a Debt Relief Order for a client. To then see the relief on the client’s face!
