I Need Motivational Help!

I've asked here about HOW to budget for a family, but darn it, I can't bring myself to do it! I need help. (Perhaps psychological help.)

This may seem like a silly AskMe, but this is a genuine tough-hurdle for us. We're stuck in a worry/avoidance/worry cycle that needs to be ended.
My wife and I are NOT numbers people and have an aversion to this kind of stuff. We've been making ends meet over the years but it's time for a big change. We're finally in a situation in which having a budget wouldn't just be about saving our asses, it would actually be a huge improvement in quality of life.
Do you have any suggestions or tales of being saved by a budget? Should we seek some kind of counseling? Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance!
