Transformational Life Coach & Resilience Practitioner
aka The PT for Your Mind
Andrea is a former secondary school teacher, turned passionate Transformational Mindset Coach & Resilience Practitioner (The PT for your Mind), UKBFF BRitish Champion Bodybuilder, Personal Trainer, and the Founder & Director of Focus On Creating Your Ultimate Self (FOCUS)CIC, a non profit organisation that she formed in 2016 to educate and empower young women and girls (primarily Black and Brown) about the benefits and importance of physical and mental health. We also work with all young people to give them a safe space to create, plan and deliver social action projects to their local community.
The term ‘turning adversity into advantage’ is her mantra after being diagnosed with a mental health illness in 2015, prescribed antidepressants and resigning from teaching due to low confidence and self-esteem. In my spare time she is an ambassador for many mental health charities such as Thrive LDN, MQ Mental Health, Time to Change and I have also been a member of the Mind Physical Activity Advisory Board. Along with these roles, Andrea is a Trustee for North Paddington Food Bank and Choice Support, in both organisations I lead on Mental Health and Wellbeing.
