Helen Monaghan, Finance Coach
Chartered Management Accountant and BIH accredited NLP Practitioner and Hypnotherapist.
Author of Successful Business Minds and 12 Steps to Improve Your Cashflow
Helen’s passion for finance and psychology was born when she was ten years old. Through her own experience she saw how big an influence money has on our lives, and took charge of her own financial destiny by working weekends whilst still at primary school; always asking ‘Why do people do the things they do?’
She encouraged her family and friends to have a better relationship with money so they could take charge of their lives. Then aged 17 years old, whilst she was still in high school, she demonstrated to her part-time employers that she was capable of managing their café in a small parachute centre. Helen later studied accountancy at Stirling University whilst still running the café although she then went on to supervise a much larger operation.
After graduating in 1996, she devoted all her attention to qualifying as a professional chartered management accountant whilst she progressed rapidly through finance management roles. In 2005 after qualifying, she launched her own accountancy business part-time, whilst still working full-time in strategic level finance.
In 2011 Helen trained as a NLP Practitioner, then shortly afterwards left full-time employment so that she could dedicate her attention to her own business combining finance and NLP. In 2014 she trained as a hypnotherapist and embarked on a six-year journey to study a psychology degree part-time through The Open University to further cement and add credibility to her psychological knowledge.
In September 2015 Helen published her first book 12 steps to Improve Your Cashflow, and in April 2016 her second (much larger!) book Successful Business Minds was published. Helen believes that to achieve a successful business and have a successful life you need to understand yourself and those around you. Her books show you how to do that.
