About Shine From Within

Meet Amanda

I believe it takes a village to raise a child and it’s our mission to help girls realise just how bright they can shine.

Our Modern, Holistic Training School…

Gives teen and tween girls the tools to shine from within. Based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia, we believe that when we are truly happy within ourselves then we will treat our body, mind and spirit with respect. We will feed our bodies healthy, nourishing foods, we will present ourselves beautifully to the world and we will have the confidence to chase our dreams, blitz through job interviews and take care of the people and world around us with pride.

Upcoming Events

Our Tweens Course is the first of it’s kind offering a modern, holistic approach which combines deportment subjects, wellness and self-discovery in a concise, fun way for girls aged 10-12 years old.

The Shine From Within Mother-Daughter Retreat is the perfect place to renew and strengthen the bond you have with your daughter, encourage your daughter to develop healthy lifestyle habits all in luxurious Noosa accomodation.

The Shine From Within Personal Development Course is our signature course and is designed specifically to help teen girls (13-17 y.o.) realise and develop their own unique beauty and confidence.

“Thank you Amanda for taking the time to nurture young lives. Mackenzie enjoyed every moment of the Tweens Course and I have loved seeing her eyes light up when telling me about her fun day.”

Janet Burchett,

mother of a Tweens Course student.

“Hey Amanda, I know this is completely out of the blue, but I wanted to thank you so much for the Shine Personal Development Course. Everything we covered throughout it is still of huge help to me today, and I’m sure it will be forever! It really helped me and it was all an absolutely amazing experience!”

Meg, Jan 2015.

Personal Development Course student

(from our first ever course in 2013!).

“The program was brilliant and I highly recommend to parents for all girls. Amanda’s empowering the girls to love and believe in themselves and take care of themselves and not get caught up in all of the hype, pressures and negative influences that they will be faced with in today’s world. We are very fortunate to have had this course at our school and have such a caring and inspirational teacher like Amanda.”

Parent of a primary school student

“Amanda had a lasting impact on our students.  Her dignified, gentle manner – coupled with her passion for empowering young girls – was greatly admired by students and teachers alike.   She is an extraordinary role model for women!”

Deborah Thomson, Kimberley College
