• Shannon owed four different banks $59,501.
• Credit Counsellors Australia reduced her payable debt by $5950.1
• Shannon saved approximately $119,002 in interest alone.
• Shannon will pay off her debts 15 years sooner.
Shannon is a single mother of three who came to us for financial advice in 2013. Shannon got herself into debt with four different banks after her husband left her in 2011. The breakup took a strain on her and she never thought she’d be free again. But, Shannon was wrong.
Credit Counsellors Australia were able to assist her in ensuring she becomes debt free. How? Through a Debt Agreement. This agreement freezes her interest rate and condenses her payment into one fortnightly payment over the next 5 years. Shannon felt alive again, and could financially plan a good future for her three children.
“It was really great talking to someone who didn’t judge me based on my financial position. I didn’t want to let me kids down because I was just keeping my head water. I felt a lot better knowing there was a solution, and eventually everything would be ok. All I had to do is focus on one simple payment without having to worry about all 4 credit cards and different due dates. Credit Counsellors Australia are the best in the business, and I will always recommend them to anyone who needs financial assistance”.

Julie started her own clothing line in 2010 but the business failed miserably. Julie was unemployed for several months, and struggled to keep up with her payments. Debt collectors started contacting her 24/7 and despite every effort to make a reasonable repayment plan – she couldn’t afford what they wanted.
Credit Counsellors Australia helped re-organise Julie’s debts and stopped the debt collectors from contacting her. We created an affordable repayment plan for Julie over 5 years. This eliminated a lot of stress she had on herself. She was then able to focus on the more important things in life!
‘I found this service to be very professional and worth every second of my time The wonderful staff at Credit Counsellors Australia have made things barely for me. If I didn’t contract you, I would be unnecessarily bankrupt now!’

‘About four years ago I was working full time, in a good position and earning good money. I was the bread winner for my wife and our three children. We lived in a beautiful house close to the Brisbane CBD. Our life seemed perfect, however, it wasn’t like that for long. My world took an unexpected turn in 2014.
Sadly, my wife became very ill and needed very expensive treatment in order to survive.
I thought to myself, ‘how on earth am I going to afford the treatment for my wife and support my family at the same time?’. Things seemed to go from bad to worse. We had a mortgage on our home, car payments, and a number of creditors we owed money to. We did try hardship with most of our creditors but couldn’t afford what they were demanding. This is when reality kicked in and I knew it was time to take action.
A few days later I was scrolling through Facebook, and stumbled across Credit Counsellors Australia ad. I was hesitant to give them a call because I didn’t want to face the reality I was in. I was fearful, but, I built up courage and called. It was the smartest decision I’ve ever made.
I was politely greeted by a lovely lady called Pauline. She was very understanding and helped me every step of the way. I agreed to submit into a Debt Agreement and get my finances under control. Credit Counsellors Australia not only changed my life – but my wife and three children as well. I honestly can’t thank them enough. CCA showed me the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank-you for all the work you’ve done. You don’t know what your help means to me and my family.’’
