Grad Bites: Dealing with Debt

For this video, we interviewed money coach Dennis Harhalakis, who gives us some key pointers around managing money and dealing with debt. He explains the difference between good and bad debt, and how to avoid getting trapped in poor financial decisions.

Dennis is Founder of Cambridge Money Coaching. He aims to help people change the way they think and behave around money, enabling them to reduce stress and make better financial decisions. We have produced a series of videos with Dennis, in which he explains how we can develop a healthy relationship with money. He talks about positive financial behaviours, and gives guidance on budgeting, saving, dealing with debt and financial problems, and working towards building wealth and financial security over our lifetimes.

About Dennis Harhalakis

Following a 30-year career in financial services, Dennis trained as a money coach, recognising that few people have a good level of knowledge about managing their personal finances.  Most people have never been taught what to do, and many of us feel anxious about it.  Dennis explains that money coaching provides a framework for how we think and feel about money. This understanding reduces anxiety and other negative emotions, enabling us to make better decisions and gain real financial independence.
