TURN ADVERSITY INTO ADVANTAGE
Andrea Corbett defies the notion that mental health illness is something to be embarrassed about and that its hold over one’s life is unbreakable. An experienced coach and mentor, she enjoys working with people and helping them unleash their true potentials, overcome self-limiting tendencies, define goals and create action plans in order to effectively realise them. Her approach is simple and entails offering personalised services that cater to each person’s needs, guiding them through the journey of personal discovery and actualisation one step at a time.
It was in 2015 when Andrea’s life took a radical turn for the worse. She was diagnosed with a mental health illness and put on anti-depressants. As if that was not enough, she resigned from a high paying teaching role, a career she has carefully cultivated for over 10 years, unable to handle the changes at the time. Fast forward to the present, she has had numerous achievements, with the turning point being the discovery of fitness as a way to manage mental health as well as discovering a new passion. A Certified Personal Trainer and Coach, the student of life uses her values, skills and life experiences to teach people how to radically transform their lifestyles.
