Shine Coaching
Goal-oriented, practical solutions to reduce anger and conflict and improve mental health and wellbeing, exclusively for men

Our Purpose

We are here to provide support and resolution for men, living in Lancashire, who are struggling to deal with stress, anger and conflict in their daily lives.

We offer one-to-one guidance coaching over the phone with a dedicated coach, providing a free, accessible, personal and flexible service.

We bring the many and varied tools of coaching to our short, targeted programme which is tailored to the needs of each individual.

We work with our clients to develop practical solutions which help them to understand the present and influence the future. We also provide ongoing, out of session support to help them stay on track and achieve their goals.

All they need in return is the desire to make a change and the commitment to making that change matter.

"A coach is someone who tells you what you don't want to hear, who has you see what you don't want to see, so you can be who you have always known you could be" Tom Landry, NFL Coach

Our Shine-Coaching Values

We had a fantastic exploratory session facilitated by Shine's own coach Nick who brought together volunteers and coaches and directors to pin down what our values as an organisation are.

It was wonderful to hear such diverse ways of looking at an organisation & exemplified why celebrating the various ways we look at values is important. Narrowing them down to make sense of our values looks like this...

Making a difference









Our Coaches

Leanne & Fiona are qualified life coaches who will guide you through your series of goal focused sessions. With their range of skills and knowledge, they will individually tailor these sessions to your particular coaching needs.

Leanne Campbell

Guidance Coach

My name is Leanne, I am from East Lancashire and I am a guidance coach. I am one of the founders of Shine Coaching.

I have a strong belief that we all deserve to be given time and space to work on what we need to feel good about ourselves. I bring honesty, directness and compassion to my coaching that develops trust and allows clients to look positively to their future.

My background is working with young people and adults with challenging behaviours and I am qualified in coaching, teaching, advice and guidance. I have specialised in conflict coaching for 8 years and I am an IEMT practitioner.

Fiona Reading

Guidance Coach

My name is Fiona, I am from East Lancashire and I am a guidance coach. I am one of the founders of Shine Coaching.

I believe that when people are listened to and their voice is heard, it opens up a multitude of possibilities for growth and change and they are able to see themselves from a different perspective. I love working with people and particularly enjoy using coaching as a tool to assist those people in reaching their full potential.

My background is working with community groups to teach assertiveness, confidence, self defence, substance misuse and I am qualified in those areas plus coaching & adult education. I have specialised in conflict coaching for 8 years.

Our Approach

Everyone gets frustrated. We all feel annoyed and irritated by certain things, at certain times in our lives. We all get angry. Yet we all deal with this emotion in different ways.

Men have been speaking to us about learning how to express themselves and deal with their anger more positively. They have been reaching out for help, and with no obvious support pathway in place, this is where Shine Coaching comes in.

We offer goal-oriented, practical solutions for men to reduce anger and conflict and, as a result, improve their mental health and wellbeing.

We are able to provide a service that is free of charge for men living in the Lancashire area because we receive valuable funding from the National Lottery

Each session is conducted over the phone, which creates a layer of anonymity and confidentiality and gives the men we help the opportunity to open up more freely and without restraint.

“Simply put, coaching is where you work with someone to connect with yourself, re-design your environment and your life, and then take action to implement it” Emma-Louise Elsey

Coaching seeks to change ingrained habits and this is done by breaking associations and patterns of thinking related to the behaviour you wish to change.

It is a very forward looking, positive method of healing, which focuses on structured, motivational techniques.

The rapport and therapeutic bond formed between coach and client are fundamental to its success and provide the encouragement and inspiration to keep the client on track to reach their goals.

Our Clients

Our Clients are our success - here's what they think

  • "This will work if you are open to embrace the change. I forgave myself, stopped thinking I can control and fix everything and learnt to let things go.”

  • “This has had a massive impact [and] dramatically changed my life. My children don’t see me angry anymore.”

  • “Before I started working with Shine I was nearly sacked for my attitude and anger issues. Working with Shine has helped me see how I can change things in my life.”

  • “…it was good to be able to talk things over with my coach and recognise where I could do better. Being able to talk things over has really helped. I don't fly off the handle as much anymore.”

  • “Before taking these sessions I seemed to focus more on all of the negative things happening in my life where as now I'm trying to see things in a different way completely, and using the steps I've learnt through Shine to help control my anger in the process.”

  • “Thanks for the first steps to creating a happier life for myself.’

  • "The experience was enlightening and thrilling to rediscover myself. I really enjoyed the coaching. I enjoyed doing the daily challenges because they quickly became the norm for me.”

  • “[Shine] helped me to see from a different perspective. The dark clouds are less frequent...and I am able to challenge them more and not go down a rabbit hole”

  • “Things seem much clearer for me now that my anger has reduced through coaching”
