Mariska Reinerink is a Certified Financial Planner and a Certified Money Coach. She began working in financial services in 2000, after realizing the impact of financial stress on bodies. You see, prior to that she was a Physiotherapist, complementing her practice with Holistic therapies to always be able to look for the cause of the physical issues; not just treat the symptoms. During this time, she started to see how money stress showed up in the bodies of her clients, became intrigued by that connection and wanted to find out more.
After switching career paths, she worked in several different financial settings, getting to know the financial world from all angles and getting a deeper understanding with experience. Again driven by finding the deeper causes, she’s been looking for ways to go beyond the numbers.
She got certified as a Certified Financial Planner, which gave her the official recognition, tools and knowledge to confidently put together financial plans for people, integrating investments and insurance, and their impact of taxation on income, business and estates.
Working with many clients and advisors all these years, she knew she couldn’t stop there though. She was driven to find out more about psychology of money and enrolled in the Money Coaching program at the Money Coaching Institute in California. Since graduating here, she could now integrate the Money Coaching process into her practice as well and get to the deeper cause of money stress.
Her background in health care gives her a solid basis to explore the psychology, biology and neuro-economic aspect of money with her clients. She can now assist her clients in exploring their subconscious money patterns, often going back to childhood and taking the stress out of day-to-day money management as well as planning for the future.
To help with the day-to-day finances, she studied to become a Behavioural Cash Flow Specialist (yes, that’s a bit of a mouth full). Cash flow planning combines our spending patterns with behavioural finance. This again is rooted in psychology but applies it more directly to our spending.
As you can see, she is always learning and evolving and driven to educate and help as many people as she can..
She is also very passionate about teaching what she knows and learns and loves breaking down seemingly complex concepts into much simpler explanations. She holds workshops regularly in Vancouver. Click here to check her upcoming schedule
