DebtBusters seeks to earn the trust of their clients through the provision of their primary debt solution, debt counselling, which was introduced by the National Credit Act in 2007. The NCA was enforced to protect consumers from unscrupulous credit providers and to assist those who have already been financially affected by these credit providers, through the process of debt counselling which is a highly effective method of eradicating debt.

Debt counselling comprises the negotiation with client's credit providers in order to extend the debt repayment terms on unsecured debts to a 60 months payment period, and reduces interest rates in order to decrease monthly debt repayments.
