The unfortunate reality is that debt collection companies do not always consider your personal and financial circumstances. They may threaten you with legal action to apply additional pressure.

Reviews & Testimonials

I really appreciate the support I was given regarding debt advice. I was provided with the upmost respect and there was no judgement at all. As difficult as it was to go through my situation, the advisors made me feel comfortable and were able to support me to find a solution to better manage my debts. A huge thank you to Jay and Keeley.

I was in a really bad situation due to a sad divide between my family but when I came to Refresh Debt Services, my mind was almost at complete ease. Keith Brady in particular is a lovely advisor and does his utmost to not only help, but follow each step along the way with perfect understanding of each situation. Couldn't recommend this company enough.
Michelle D'Arcy
Keith was great! constantly asked if I had any questions, made sure I understood everything, didn't rush me when I was getting information. Totally professional but also put me at ease and we even had a little joke. The weight of the world has been lifted off my shoulders. 100% recommend them.
Craig Newkland

Linda Harvey
From the day i started my DMP the team have been more than helpful and respectful. Over the Last years i have had know reason to contact Refresh as i never had any issues with my payments ect. In the last week as my DMP has come to an end i needed advice and support with being able to show proof my DMP had come to and end and i now owe nothing, but also a huge weight lifted from my shoulders. Brenna my account manager was soo helpful and understanding and took her time to chat to me and send me all the info i had asked for. These people are not judgmental or insensitive, just helpful people trying to help you get back on track!! Thank you

I found refresh very helpful when I was struggling with my debts. I received monthly statements and updates on what I was paying and when things changed and was only to happy to help with any problems I had all ways pleasant on the phone and understanding. Lucky enough I am debt free thanks to refresh would highly recommended them
Keith was so helpful! Made me feel very comfortable to talk to him about the help I needed. Would recommend anyone who is struggling to talk to him! Fantastic service! Couldn’t be more grateful of his time and help!
Keith was absolutely brilliant. I was a victim of a sophisticated Bitcoin scam which has been largely responsible for my present financial predicament and I feel embarrassed and ashamed that I allowed this to happen to me.As a result I was really scared as I began to think that everything was fraudulent including Debt Management agencies. Right from the start I felt safe and reassured with Keith. He not only knew his stuff but validated my feelings and perceptions, was not at all judgemental and his concern and empathy were genuine with marked social, psychological and emotional intelligence and sensitivity. For the first time since I realised I had been scammed I could sleep. I felt protected and I still do. He would make a very good psychiatrist.
From the moment I spoke to Keith he put me at ease. He professionally took me through the possible steps, answering any questions that I had and his empathy and reassurance was very appreciated. Once I came to a final decision on what I needed Keith again answered any other questions and quickly put the plan into action. Honestly I had spent so many days/nights worrying about the debts once I had finished talking to Keith I felt like a huge weight was lifted from My shoulders!! I can’t thank Keith enough for taking the time to listen and then implement the plan for me! 10/10
