South Manchester Counselling

I’m Andrea, and I help young people who are finding life difficult to cope with at times.

As a teacher, a parent, and of course through my training and practice, I have come to see how the growing amount of pressure and expectations on young people, alongside normal peer pressure problems, have been responsible for the enormous rise in mental health problems in this age group.

Knowing that positive changes are a reality, I am passionate to help change this through my work and research.
