I started young… As soon as I could borrow money, I did. I was desperate to keep up with friends, completely reluctant to ask for help. I ‘self funded’ my way through my undergraduate and masters degree, not realising how badly my debt would cripple me I’m the future.
Over time my debts have mounted – a little here, a little there to keep me going. Tide me over month to month. Consolidation after consolidation. And now I’m at breaking point.
I work hard as a therapist; delivering interventions for trauma and substance misuse. Sadly I rarely see much of my paycheck after paying all of my bills and minimum payments.
My dream would be to get back into the black, and start saving for a home of my own, be able to go on and qualify as a registered therapist and keep giving back to people in need. To do this I need to get out of my £17000 hole…
I am so hopeful that someone might help me get off this hamster wheel. Know that I am a kind and thoughtful person and I will pay it forward.
