Nadia is the epitome of shy and mighty.  She walks her talk and understands the complexities of being shy and a naturally introvert.  Nadia also shines a different light on the “quiet ones” and is able to reframe shyness. This has enabled me to stop using it to self-berate and mentally beat myself up. “

“If you’re a shy person and you feel it’s holding you back, I would recommend this program. You’ll soon discover that being shy doesn’t mean that you can’t be successful. You’ll pick up loads of tips and tools to help manage those times when you feel that your shyness is holding you back from being your best self.”

“The ones who talk the loudest aren’t always right – and although we’re quiet, we’re not dumb – we’re taking it all in and mentally working out solutions and considering various scenarios so that when we do speak-up it’s of value.  Nadia has enabled me to see this as the shy-persons superpower”

“I have received great advice and fantastic support which has enabled me to gradually step out of my comfort zone little by little. I’ve learnt a lot about myself through activity sheets, goal setting exercises, creating plans, and regular journaling. Now I feel like I can achieve anything!”

When I first joined, I was hiding away from the world and letting opportunities pass me by.  I wasn’t reaching my full potential.  I was ashamed of my shyness and longed to be different. Now I see that although I may sometimes be quieter than others, I still have a lot to offer and there can even be positive sides to being a quieter person.”

Nadia is truly amazing and continues to inspire me on a daily basis. She is proof that you don’t have to be an extrovert to be a successful entrepreneur. Nadia has taught me to leverage the parts in me that I used to think needed fixing and to fully step into the person I am. Signing up was the best thing I could have done for myself . Nadia truly cares about her clients and I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

“Now I ‘own’ my shyness and am more willing to work with it rather than trying to get rid of it. By taking baby steps and setting realistic goals I’ve been able to take positive action and become more involved with things that I enjoy.”

“Nadia is compassionate and passionate about how shy people can make a big impact on the world – one conversation, email, blog post at a time.  She is mighty in her passion for helping others – and she has enabled me to focus on my desire to help others and use that as my focus when “showing-up”. I’m not competing with louder people, my style is just as valid, and in some ways, very much needed.”

I created SHINE to help you step out of the shadows and overcome your shyness so you can be more visible, share your ideas with the world and achieve your goals without scaring yourself senseless or pretending to be something you’re not.

I’m Nadia Finer, and I’m on a softly spoken mission to help shy people be more mighty. I’m the UK’s leading shyness expert; the author of two books about shyness – Shy and Mighty (published by Quercus) and Shy and Mighty for Kids, (published by DK).

I’m a regular speaker in organisations and in schools around the country. I have appeared on Radio 4 Saturday Live, Woman’s Hour and the ITV News. I’ve been in the Times, Guardian, the Telegraph, The Telegraph, The Independent and in Good Housekeeping.

I know what it’s like to struggle with shyness. You see, all my life I’ve had a little voice. Really little. The kind of voice that makes random people tell me that I should be a cartoon voice-over actress. A voice so little that when strangers ring my house phone, they ask me to put my mum on the phone. It’s no wonder I’m often shy and self-conscious!

I believe that shyness is not a weakness, or a shameful secret. We are not broken. And we don’t need to change who we are. We have so many talents and gifts; it’s time for us to step out of the shadows, because the world needs to hear our voices.
