In Episode #27 of Mindset Mastery, “Financial Stress: Practical Solutions for Overcoming this Hidden Epidemic,” host Marie Swift, CEO of Impact Communications, speaks with Dr. Alex Melkumian, author of the recently released book, Financial Psychology: Restoring Financial Wellness in a Post-COVID Economy. A licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and founder of Financial Psychology Center in Los Angeles, he is devoted to helping clients improve their financial and mental health by uncovering patterns in their relationship with money that keep them stuck and suffering. In this episode, he provides ideas that can help reduce financial anxiety and improve financial wellness.
In a nutshell: Financial psychology is the intersection of financial literacy, emotional awareness, financial beliefs, and cultural factors. Understanding how these factors interplay revitalizes emotional and financial health. You will learn how stress changes our brains, why it is important to demystify the label “stress,” how to silence your inner critic, create mental boundaries, and reclaim control. He explains how to use our emotions wisely and why a “worry session” can actually be a good idea.
