(from Alan Heeks forthcoming book)
We all carry some anxieties and negative beliefs around money. One of the best writers and guides to help you reach a stage of understanding and clearing is Peter Koenig, and I especially recommend his book, Thirty Lies About Money: Liberating Your Life, Liberating Your Money, ISBN 0-595-29236-4. This is a short and powerful exposure of some of the commonest misleading beliefs about money.
There is a lot of helpful and free information available online.
Peter Koenig’s blog is one of the best and also has some useful tools, see http://peterkoenig.typepad.com.
At the practical level, eg looking at pensions, care costs etc, there are a number of useful UK websites. You could try the following:
In looking for professional help with savings, pensions and investments, you might try local Independent Financial Advisors (IFA’s). You can get contacts for local ones at www.unbiased.co.uk. I would recommend that you look for an IFA with expertise in ethical investments. You can also contact these through www.ethicalinvestment.org.uk.
