Money Neuroscience ... the Reptilian Brain & Money
Welcome back to Financial Therapy. We'll be back with lots of interesting guests joining us in a bigger conversation about us and money soon. But in the mean while lets discuss a little more about money neuroscience, in particular money and our three...
Money Neuroscience ... hack chemicals in your brain to be better with money
I am absolutely obsessed with understanding our relationship with money...on a deeper level. And one of the most exciting things I discovered a couple of years ago, was reading some research that done by an Australian bank called ANZ that looked at the factors that constitutes Financial Wellbeing. They discovered that only 9% of what is known as financial literacy i.e. financial knowledge and financial experience, has an impact of financial wellbeing. But I am curious about the rest ... the psychology, the behaviours and the mindset that get us being better with money. And deeper still, our physiology; what is happening in our body and particularly our brain when we are relating and managing our money. In this episode we delve into money neuroscience and how we can hack happy chemicals in our brain to get us being better with money.
Money on the Road Less Travelled ... the Conductor / Composer
Welcome to back to Financial Therapy. Take a moment right now to just imagine following your dreams. Or imagine doing a profession that you love so much, that you would do it for free. What about leaving everything you know behind to follow an uncommon path. In this episode of Financial Therapy we are going to explore what inspires people to choose say their passion, over a regular pay check. We’re heading out to discover what money is like on the road less travelled, where individuals make less standard choices about how the make money, and what are the driving forces that inspire them to do so. I’m calling it ‘Money on the Road Less Travelled'. My first guest’s passion has meant he has performed in front of 3.8 billion people world wide. It was conducting the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Sydney Olympics Opening Ceremony. Imagine over half of the world’s population watching you do your day job! George Ellis is a conductor and composer, whose work has taken him around the world working with the likes of the late Lou Reed and transforming the songs of David Bowie into orchestral masterpieces ... and he happens to be my good mate.

Financial Abuse ... it can happen to anyone
Welcome back to Financial Therapy. CONTENT WARNING: We discuss issues of abuse that may be triggering to some people. Please refer to the list of domestic violence hotlines in your country. LIST OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOTLINES GLOBALLY Let me ask you this? Have you or someone you know had their intimate partner forced you to purchase things that you didn’t want or need. What about them controlling where you spend your money and requiring you to account for everything you spent in your day? Or have they maxed out your credit card and then don’t make payments on the balance? Maybe they have prevented you from working by hiding your keys? Or have they limited your ability to attend job training, pursue higher education, or otherwise advance your career? Or simply they spent your money without your knowledge. What I have just listed are some of the signs of what could be a financially abusive relationship. And you know what? Financial abuse is more common that you think and can happen to anyone, at any time of their lives. But you might be interested to know … that financial abuse is common in young people’s relationships. Even with all we know about abuse in intimate relationship, the benefit of education and opportunities and generally more freedom to live the life we want, it is still a big problem. We are speaking with Dr Jozica Kuti, a Senior Researcher at RMIT University and the Victoria Law Foundation. who turned her deep fascination about why this is happening to young people, to leading a team at the University to developed a toolkit for young adults about money and love.

Money & Climate Change ... the psychology of inaction
Climate Change is the most urgent threat in our time, and if we don’t act quickly we are going to have catastrophic repercussions to clean water, food safety and ecological diversity, which is vital for humans to survive on the planet. One of the key weapons to fighting climate change is how and where we spend and invest our money. Every day we have to the power in our back pocket to support green businesses and green financial institutions, reduce our consumption, and care for and repair our home. For time immemorial our financial choices have affected economies, the decisions by political parties and even the rise and fall of corporations just think of Netflix and Blockbuster Video. I believe we all know this, not so deep down, that our money does impact change. But knowing and doing can sometimes be worlds apart. So, what are the psychological and behavioural barriers that prevent us from completely using our money as a weapon for good against climate change. Here to help us discuss the issue is Mairéad Cleary, a psychotherapist, and eco-enthusiast, whose therapeutic practise and working with clients is informed by a nature-based philosophy, which she believes is vital to better mental health.
Money & Women ... the good, the bad and the structural inequality
Welcome back to the Financial Therapy podcast, I’m Jane Monica-Jones. Your host and your personal Financial Therapist. In recent years we have heard a lot about financial wellbeing or financial wellness. But what does it really mean? When we think of financial wellbeing we might think we need more financial education on strategies such as how to invest, diversify and accumulate. And if you head over to our favourite bookstores, for years there has plenty of books, like that there. But interestingly, research shows financial knowledge and experience only makes up about 9% of what make us better at managing and multiplying our money. A lot of research is now saying that psychological and behavioural factors make up the majority of us being better with money at around 61%. Having self-control, feeling confidence in money management skills, good modelling when we were growing up and the like. So it’s not surprising we are seeing more Financial Psychotherapists or Financial Psychologists that can help.
