What We Do
IT’S OUR MISSION TO
give teens all over the world the tools and confidence
to shine from within.
Introducing our new book!
"Shine From Within; a teen girl's guide to life" is such a wonderful, well rounded book for teens. I work closely with teens and I see it first hand - life and growing up can be tough, but it doesn't have to be. This book is definitely something I would recommend every teenager read. It gives you tips, advice and courage to truly be confident in who you are!"Teigan Nash
About Shine From Within
I believe it takes a village to raise a child and it’s our mission to help teens and tweens realise just how bright they can shine.
I’ve been teaching teens since I was one myself (almost 20 years!) and absolutely LOVE seeing our students embrace who they are and share their unique beauty with the world.
Our modern, wholistic training school…
Gives teens and tweens the tools to shine from within through workshops, holiday courses, school-based programs, mother-daughter retreats, one-on-one coaching and our award-winning Youth Mentor Training, which trains adults to create their own programs for youth in their communities. Based in South-east Queensland, Australia, we have taught thousands of students and trained youth mentors all over the globe in North America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania.
We believe that when we are truly happy within ourselves then we will treat our body, mind and spirit with care and respect. We will eat healthy, nourishing foods, we will present ourselves beautifully to the world and will have the confidence to chase our dreams, blitz through job interviews and take care of the people and world around us with pride.

The Youth Mentor Training will give you the tools to nurture, mentor and hold a space for teens and tweens.

The business of running programs for teens will also be covered, ensuring that you can reach and support as many young people as you want to, in a variety of formats. You will gain the knowledge and tools to work with teens, mentor them and run successful, heart-centred workshops for them based on your strengths and passions.
