Here’s a little bit about the coaching approach I take coming from an alternative psychology, Neuro-Linguistic Programming background. *
You may have heard the expression “it’s not your circumstances, but how you respond to them that counts”. The beliefs that you have shape the way that you respond to your circumstances. Sometimes you have beliefs, values and ideas that limit your possibilities and responses, locking you into a problem without you even knowing it. If you have a problem or two that you have been struggling with, you probably have a load of disempowering beliefs and ideas that are “supporting” that problem. In order to really let go of the problem, you need to address your thinking and beliefs.
Your brain is kind of like a living supercomputer. Each second our senses are bombarded with two million bits of information – that’s waay too much information for us to consciously process. So your unconscious brain takes the 2,000,000 bits of information from your five senses and it deletes, distorts and generalises that information down to about 7 chunks of information that becomes what you think is going on, that’s your version of reality.
Your brain only presents you with what it thinks is relevant to you. So the filtering is done according to what you already know; your language, where you were born, what you learned in your life so far; things from your family, schooling, work and friends. All of this creates your memories, beliefs, values and attitudes, which in turn filters how you see and respond to the world.
Your beliefs and values and attitudes are crucial in creating the world you see, hear and feel. Each of us has our own unique map of the world. What we see is a reflection of everything that has happened in our life.
Sometimes you will form beliefs that limit your thinking and possibilities, these beliefs are the basis of many problems. Once you resolve the issues and limiting beliefs from your past, your thoughts are no longer stuck re-creating the problem over and over, trying to resolve them and you can move forward. Here are some common limiting beliefs. You may recognize them in yourself or others:
I like this model because it is a holistic model that says that people are fine. If there is some behaviour or problem they are doing that is not working for them, then let’s work to change the behaviour and the underlying beliefs and emotions, not the person. The person is fine. Just sometimes they may have some disempowering ideas stopping them from living their potential.
Some other disease-based models that label people as having this or that mental disease or disorder. Now this may be useful in within the medical system, though it is not always useful for the person in helping them to overcome that challenge.
All of the advice and articles I write are based on the NLP paradigm (and my personal belief) that you’re perfect the way you are, if there’s something that’s not working for you, let’s change the behaviour through finding and releasing the underlyng beliefs and values that underpin that behaviour, shifting them to more empowering beliefs that will support the behaviour you want.
*Neuro-Linguistic Programming is an alternative psychology that was based on modelling the techniques and tools of the best therapists in the 60’s. It draws from the traditional therapies of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Brief Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Family Therapy and Hypnosis. It is about how your brain and language affect your world and experience. The NLP techniques are excellent for creating fast and lasting change and getting real results with clients.

“Having ongoing training is essential for our team and our business. It’s important to look after the people that look after others. Kylie has the experience, professionalism and knowledge to engage with our team and help them understand about human behaviour and why people do what they do. In the wellness and health industry it’s a different sales and service delivery and it’s imperative to keep on top of these understandings to perform at our best to help others. We couldn’t recommend Kylie high enough.”
“I have worked with Kylie over many years. She has helped me as a Business Mindset Coach, as a motivational speaker for my gym clients at both Vision Personal Training & now at Flow Athletic. I bring her in to train my Personal Training teams in mindset, communication and how to coach our clients better and excel in our own personal mastery as fitness leaders. At my recent Fitness Business event, my gym owner colleagues were blown away by her talk, saying she is the best speaker they have ever seen. After every event we always get rave reviews about her talks and training. I highly recommend Kylie’s work as a coach & speaker.”
“I finished the Spiritual Awakening Course yesterday and I found it truly amazing. An incredible next step after our coach training. I feel so much more enlightened and “opened-up”. It has really opened my eyes to the power of the universe and the energy flowing in each of us. I loved it – thank you.
I am feeling so lucky at the moment. So many things are just falling into my lap. I visualise it and set my intention to manifest it and it comes. Things such as getting more clients, needing help to put my business online, not knowing how to get known in my local community etc. Courses / insights / clients have just fallen into my lap at the right time.”
Of course I am still learning and growing, but the course has really helped. Thank you”
“Before I met Kylie I was feeling very lost working full time in law in Sydney CBD. I’ve known my whole life that I was here to help people, but I just didn’t know exactly how. So when I found Kylie, it just was really fitting that it was going to help me ground my magic. I started the coach training and had an amazing time. It was beautiful to go through the process of having a mentor that had that spiritual element and that holistic element, as well as the very grounded science-based knowledge as well. So that really helped me to conjure that for myself.
I started my business before I even finished the course. I just started putting myself out there. And now I’ve gotten it to a point where I’ve got really grounded solid message, and two years later am running a multi-6 figure coaching business as a leading pioneer in my niche, helping clients all over the world.”
“Before I signed up with Kylie I had a busy PT business… I was exhausted and on the brink of burnout and no matter how hard I tried, I had reached a ceiling in my income that I just couldn’t break through. After completing my NLP Coaching certification, I found my true voice and the energy of my business has been completely transformed. I’ve created an online program, up-levelled my entire business and totally smashed my previous income goals. I make decisions more confidently and I can help my clients create change in their life even faster. On a personal level, NLP gave me the inner strength to leave a toxic situation and rebuild myself which lead to me discovering the love of my life! Today I am living the life that I’ve always wanted – but just hadn’t been able to put into words. I have never been this happy or this powerful. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams I would not hesitate to reach out for help from Kylie.”
Before attaining my NLP Coach certification, I was an online trainer who was getting excellent results for “some” of my clients. I used a mixture of experience, intuition and an exhausting “helicopter-parent” style of accountability coaching. It was like the 20% of the clients who weren’t getting good results took up 80% of my effort, and it was draining my passion for my business. Completing my Certification with Kylie has been the best decision of my career. The very next month after finishing I created a new program and made $30,000 in new sales. I now have a repeatable system to coach my clients and I can get them both immediate AND long-lasting change, sometimes in less than 40 minutes. In the past 12 months, I have doubled my freedom and fulfilment in my business I have created raving clients who snap up my offers.”
I signed up with Kylie because I knew that to have a bigger effect as a PT I needed to improve my understanding of how the mind works. Through NLP Coach training I now have great coaching techniques that break through all sorts of negative behaviour patterns. I’ve noticed big improvements in all areas of my life including my own personal finances and my client retention. This has allowed me new freedom to work on scaling my business and helping even more people with less one on one time from myself. The coach training has given me the ability to fully unlock the power of your mindset and those that don’t have this skill are only tapping into a small amount of their potential.
This morning I had a kick-ass coaching session with Kylie Ryan. We’ve been working together for a couple of months, and she’s the perfect person to help me integrate the rapid transformations I go through regularly. I’d been getting this vision of my fully mature creative and entrepreneurial self. His discipline, commitment, and command of wealth was 10x what mine is now, but it wasn’t really about money for him. Our coaching sessions usually roll with me saying, “Kylie, I want to be, do, and have EVERYTHING” and Kylie helping me find the archetypes and parts that aren’t integrated and bringing them together. MAGICK HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
