By now you’re probably wondering whether or not taking a mind-body approach to losing weight will work for you and whether or not you can fit this into your lifestyle and your family.
And these are all natural concerns many of our clients have had in the past before deciding to work with us.
So yes. A Mind-Body approach to improving your relationship with food and creating body confidence WILL work for you, because you’ll actually be going to the root of the problem.
Emotional healing based weight loss is scientifically proven to be far more effective than just “fix yourself” at a surface level with “exercising more and eating loss”. Even self-compassion has been proven to be a more effective weight loss strategy than JFDI and then labelling yourself a hopeless failure when you’re not already skinny in 3 weeks.
But WAIT just because our Emotional Healing Weight Loss Approach WILL work for you – it doesn’t mean we’re the right people to lead you through it.
FIRST of all, if you’re weighing up working with us, or starting on a shake diet, you’re probably not ready for us, not yet anyway.
You are also NOT ready to go down this road if you’re unwilling to consider those uncomfortable questions and do the deeper inner work that is the key to creating lasting, “effortless” change.
There is some effort required, but it’s not the effort of slogging yourself on the cross-trainer… It’s the effort of asking yourself questions like: “What am I really hungry for?” and deeply considering the answer, even if you need a few tissues along the way.
Type 1. The Experienced Exerciser who loves her workouts, loves her food but just can’t seem to get the balance right between her social life and work life.
No matter how hard Gilli exercised she could never really get the lean, toned physique she looking for. She could stick to a 30 day Paleo Challenge like a winner, but as soon as she relaxed the results seem to disappear, and every time she “fell off” getting back on the bandwagon felt like an even bigger uphill climb.
After working with her subconscious mind Gilli stopped being so hard on herself; and as a result stopped needing to reward herself so much with food and wine. 3 years on she’s lost a total of 25 kilos and often has people come up to her at her CrossFit gym to tell her that she’s their secret inspiration.
Imagine being able to purge all the negative stories you’re telling yourself about why losing weight is hard “especially at your age” and instead just let go of the extremes and just enjoy everything in moderation?
Type 2. The Maternal Caregiver who will be there for everyone else at the click of their fingers, but always gets the short end of the stick when it comes to her own self care.
Rachel was an Emergency Department Nurse, and a first-time mum with PND and a FIFO husband. She would often find herself turning to food, coffee and alcohol for comfort, energy, and distraction. The desperate lack of sleep meant the couch was far more appealing than energetic outdoor activities, and being healthy had always been associated with restriction, a lot of effort and a sense of failure. So even though she wanted to live her healthiest life, she found herself stuck in inertia more often than not.
After upgrading and clearing limiting subconscious beliefs such as “I’m not worthy” “I can’t do this”, “it’s too hard” and releasing the past emotional baggage she was carrying from her difficult childhood, she finally realised that she deserved looking after herself as beautifully as she looked after everyone else.
Imagine looking after yourself with the same level of care as you look after everybody else. What would it feel like to let go of the scales as a measure of your worth as a person, and just start nourishing yourself with gentle and enjoyable exercise because you know your choices matter and you’re worth it?
Type 3. The stressed out professional who’s constantly skipping meals, eating on the run and too busy to really give their health the attention it needs -until it reaches crisis point. Then they launch into All or Nothing mode until they can’t keep it up and collapse in exhaustion.
On the outside Michelle appeared strong and successful and had her dream role as GM or HR at a company she had always wanted to work with. As a mum of 2 young kids “building their immune system” in daycare, she was battling with exhaustion, stress, anger and frustration. As a result of not listening to her body and prioritising everyone but herself, she ended up in hospital and had an extreme wake up call – her body was in a state of dis-ease.
By doing the internal work Michelle was able to reset her boundaries, finally tame her Inner Critic and stop constantly moving the goalposts and prioritise her health. Within 12 months she had made a miraculous recovery that surprised her specialists, and she also built the confidence to leave her demanding Corporate job and launch a new consulting business which created so much more freedom and joy, and time to live by her own schedule and values.
Imagine if you were able to finish your day at 4pm happily knowing that you’ve done an amazing job, and go to a yoga class feeling totally free and peaceful. What would it feel like to come home feeling relaxed, fulfilled and ready to be present with your kids and husband over a wholesome family dinner.
Like I said before, our Emotional Based Healing Methods are NOT for everyone.

See you soon!
I’ve passed the big 4-0! I’ve now ‘released’ 48kgs, since the birth of my son 2 years ago. To Kylie, Selina and all my GBQ sisters, you helped me to get out of my own way, so I could coach my inner critic and encourage my cheerleader. I am getting my pre-babies mojo back and am in a better headspace than when I was fighting fit! I feel like GBQ really delivered on the greatest gift, self-love and clarity, and has given me the confidence and conviction to continue my journey! Thank you.
With Kylie’s help I released the hopelessness & anger I was using as an excuse, and have stepped out of my shell with a vengeance! I’m now clear on what I want to do with my life and I’m taking steps towards making it a reality, and in doing so my entire eating habits have changed… the ‘hunger subsided’ & I’ve stuck to my better eating habits and gym workouts easily. It’s been amazing!
Working with Kylie has been life changing. Kylie helped me get back in touch with my own body, taught me how to nourish myself and get my glowing, gorgeous body. She helped me move from self-loathing to self-love. She taught me how to consciously turn down the critical voice and turn up my inner cheerleader. Without a doubt starting with your mindset is the first place to start on your weight loss journey. Lasting results for sure and totally life changing!
What I have gotten out of the course can’t be measured. I glow from the inside out! For the first time in years; I am happy because I am happy! I love myself – I can actually look in a mirror with no self loathing… I love the woman smiling back at me and not just because my body has changed on the outside – I have changed from the inside and it is a reflection!
Everything has really changed, I finally let the girl inside out. I feel like my life has really just started. I’ve had a massive increase in personal power (from zero), sense of possibility, happiness, resilience, CONFIDENCE! Reached my first weight loss goal, I have gone from a size 12 to an 8-10. I love myself and respect myself for the first time, I cannot express how much this has changed me. Thank you does not even cut it.
I have been struggling with my weight and feeling of not being good enough for as long as I can remember…This has changed for me now. I have had more awakenings and realisations and learnings than I thought possible in the past few months. This really is SOOOOO not about the weight. I TOTALLY get that now.
I have loads more energy… I’m eating so well and exercising when I can. With my 1st baby I couldn’t cope with the emotional roller-coaster that is pregnancy. I ate, and ate, and ate non-stop. My head is in such a great place at the moment. I owe it all to Kylie and your Goddess Body Quest program x
