Andrea Nettel Founding Director, Counsellor

Andrea Nettel is the founding director of the Centre. She attained her Diploma in Counselling and Communications (with distinction) from the South African College of Applied Psychology.

Andrea sees the individual as part of a system and works together with her clients to encourage healthy relationships. Andrea enjoys relationship counselling and family therapy. Andrea has a special interest in trauma and its effects on the individual, the family and the community. She assists parents and caregivers during times when stresses such as special needs, disability or trauma feel overwhelming, and provides support to individuals struggling with life’s challenges.

Andrea has successfully worked with individuals and families struggling with the effects of anxiety, depression, anger, divorce, disability, rape, abuse and neglect. She has worked in communities dealing with severe aggression and gang violence.

The Family Counselling Centre was born out of her passion to reconnect families by developing understanding for one another.
