The Addams Family star has registered for online classes for training to become a certified counsellor.

"Christina went through hell and back growing up. For years she struggled with her self-esteem, so she knows how hard it is for young girls," the Daily Telegraph quoted a source as telling US magazine Star.

"Ricci hopes to learn how she can help them get better without having to go through all the pain she did as a child," the source added.
