Financial Health was established in 2006 by Dave Thomas and Bryan Taylor, with the vision to help their clients become financially fit and healthy.  Following Bryan's retirement in 2016 Dave continues to provide ongoing service to all Financial Health clients.

At Financial Health, we believe that being financially healthy is as important as being physically and emotionally healthy, and that it has the same benefits - lowering stress, improving happiness and creating an all round better quality of life. Read on to get to know the team.
