The Kinder Institute of Life Planning has announced that Christopher Mellor, RLP, Dip PFS, Cert CII (MP) founder of Inspired Financial Life Planning and The Financial Management Group has earned the prestigious Registered Life Planner (RLP) designation. Earning this dedication requires a strong commitment to the financial planning profession, completion of a five-day residential training program and a six-month practicum involving peer review with mentor coaching and supervision.

The Kinder Institute’s mission is to teach planners and advisors the relationship skills and methodology of Life Planning. Life Planning is the human side of financial planning. Life Planning seeks to discover the deepest and most profound goals of a client through a process of listening and inquiry. Then using a mix of professional and relationship skills the experienced Life Planner, along with the client, resolves obstacles to the client’s goals, creates a plan and guides the client to the accomplishment of their goals.

George Kinder is the founder of the Life Planning movement, a visionary concept that seeks to find ways to help people discover and understand their core life values. Values – not just £’s – must be the true focus of financial planning. Mr. Kinder was named in 2005 as one of the 25 Most Important People in financial planning.

Christopher Mellor, who has established a reputation as both a competent and caring Life Planner, believes that people are often afraid to walk alone in to the future. He says, “Life Planners stand beside their clients and provide guidance and support where and when it is most needed. As Life Planners we genuinely care about the human being beside us and give people awareness and permission to live their life to the fullest.”

Although the concept of the Life Planning is becoming popular in the media these days,
Christopher cautions that most advisors who use the term Life Planning are only using it as a sales tool. It is critically important to find someone who has the proper education and training because you are dealing with people’s emotions and dreams. That can be a dangerous combination in unskilled hands.

Inspired Financial Life Planning has been recently established as an independent company specialising in fee-based Financial Life Planning and then in association with The Financial Management Group, fee-based Wealth Management. The office location for both businesses remains in Amersham.
