Financial Counsellors work first and foremost with the customers of a financial firm and try to sell debt-relief services to the client. They may also work for government or non-profit agencies that are dedicated to helping people reduce debt and manage shaky finances. While working with a client, Financial Counsellors review the debt and the savings a client has and make proposals on how to create assets and decrease debt. In addition to working with families to pay down overwhelming debt, Financial Counsellors teach people how to manage their money effectively and responsibly in order to avoid future financial problems.
