Description


Financial therapist Vicky Reynal uncovers how our thoughts, emotions, and past experiences shape our money habits and then guides the way to financial freedom


People avoid talking about money more than they avoid talking about sex. It’s one of the last taboos—and that’s because our money habits are rooted not just in wealth, but in our thoughts, emotions, and past experiences. In What We Talk About When We Talk About Money, financial therapist Vicky Reynal reveals the dynamics that cause unhealthy financial habits and helps readers heal their relationship with money.


How do I know if I’m overspending? It’s one of the most frequent questions that Reynal’s clients end up asking in therapy: To explore this question, we meet Helen who wonders if owning 103 dresses is too many. We learn that though the shopping is within her financial means, Helen spends as emotional armor in pursuit of fitting in. Once she’s no longer afraid of being socially isolated, she can gain control of her spending.


Money habits are often tied to self-worth, which leads to overspending, underspending, keeping money secrets, and self-sabotage. It impacts not only your sense of self, but important relationships with partners, parents, siblings, friends, bosses, and coworkers. Through a mix of case studies, client stories, and the author’s clinical expertise this book will help you unpack what is driving your financial habits and find financial freedom.
