Shine From Within run programs for teen and tween girls.  We’re here to support you to truly shine, inside and out.  We do this through a range of programs, one-on-one mentoring via Skype, our inspiring insta feed, our informative blog posts, selling our favourite natural skin-care and make-up products and with our AMAZING new book (in all book stores, Big W, etc or you can buy online here).

Why?  Because we know it’s tough.  You’ve got so much going on, you’re trying to keep up with your studies, be a great friend, feel independent, feel CONFIDENT and find your calling in life.  You’re trying to stay fit, eat well, look and FEEL your best.  There’s so much information on ‘the Google’ but what do you listen to?  What’s real?  What’s even happening in the world and how can we make a real DIFFERENCE?

So our programs are designed to be practical, informative, fun and help you to grow as a person.  We don’t try to change you or make you into something that you’re not.  We just give you the tools to express yourself confidently, tune into your intuition, deal with friendship dramas and manage your time so you’re not overwhelmed and stressed out 24/7!


We do our best to make sure you learn loads but also have fun doing it.

"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!"

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.

“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!”

(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.
