Not many people are aware of how debt counselling works so Moneybags has created a ‘What is debt counselling’ guide. There are many advantages to debt counselling such as being able to sort your finances out in order to become debt free out without being harassed by those who you owe money to.

There are also disadvantages with debt counselling, such as having to adhere to strict budgets, paying debt counselling fees and not being able to apply for any loans while you undergo the process. But if you stick with it you will get yourself out of debt. Read our guide to ensure you are well informed.
