Great financial planning is about your whole life, not just your money


At simplicity, we understand that emotion guides the majority of decision-making. This is why we focus on the personal, human, emotional side of financial planning and help you focus on getting clear about what matters to you.


By helping you create a vision for today and the future and providing you with the tools and understanding, we help you design a plan that works for you no matter what major life event you are facing.


“Every big decision we take and every plan we make for the future involves emotion”


... and this was certainly true when I founded Simplicity.


Having worked for 28 years within financial services, I knew that the passion and joy I had in helping others to see a clarity in their financial future and providing simple and easy to understand financial tools to get them there, meant that it was the right time to build a business


that I could be proud of and where my clients felt heard, understood and safe. I want you to feel the connection that we don’t just manage your money, but help you manage and explain the emotions and behaviours around your money so that you can live a better lifestyle now and in the future.
