Coaching after Cancer

One to one Skype coaching, helping you get the job you want after cancer.

Since 2016, we've been running a small coaching programme for young adults with cancer. We work with qualified and experienced coaches to give Shine members three sessions of coaching via Skype. Our programme has had great results, with the participants telling us that the sessions gave us the time and space to think about things in a different way, and go on to make some of the changes that they wanted to make. Very often those changes have related to work and employment

Our lead coach is Emily Hodge. You can read more about her below and also view her own website here


Our Manchester programme is accepting applications!


Are you looking to make some changes to your work situation after a cancer diagnosis? Are you wondering how to manage your return to work, thinking about getting a new job - or even considering starting a business? Our coaching programme could be for you!


If you're in your 20s, 30s or 40s and live in Greater Manchester, we are offering 7 people the opportunity to take part in this unique programme. What you'll get:

- Three sessions of coaching via Skype with a qualified and accredited coach

- Help to understand and build your confidence to make the changes you'd like

- The opportunity to attend a one-day workshop at the end of your sessions to further develop your plans


This programme isn't about reviewing your CV - it's about helping you to think through what types of changes you'd like to make and help you take some steps in a new direction. 

To apply, please click on this link and fill out the information by 15th September 2018. We'll be in touch by the end of September to let you know more!
