Wealth psychologists are mental health professionals who specialize in helping ultra-rich clients deal with issues related to the guilt they feel about being wealthy.
Some people are not comfortable with all aspects of being rich. Some realize they may not be psychologically or emotionally prepared to cope with wealth.
Wealth psychologists help the rich live happier, more productive lives. Their focus is to help the wealthy better cope with self-limiting or self-destructive behaviors.
It is hard for the wealthy to discuss their troubles as others see them as over privileged. Below are some of the reasons the rich state they feel guilty and need help:
- The Bible
- TV shows shaming the rich
- The Occupy Wall Street movement
- The $15 wage campaign
As a result, the rich tend to hang out with other rich people, not out of snobbery, but in order to be around those who understand their problems.
These are real fears faced by the richest of the rich. Serious issues can come from having a huge amount of money such as depression and anxiety.
Wouldn’t it be easier if they just gave most of it away?
