Debt

The sooner debt problems are dealt with the less likely they are going to result in a crisis. The Money Doctors service aims to help you deal with your finances so you are in control of them and they are not in control of you.

Budget, budget, budget: it’s the only way. Be realistic: don't say you spend £20 on your social life if you really spend £100.
