Welcome


SCROLL DOWN

Welcome


kia ora beautiful heart, I'm so glad you're here,

I’m Kylie, the Heart Centred Coach, here to support open hearted Parents & Teachers to better understand neurodiverse children so they can truly thrive. It can be really challenging living and working with these children. I am passionate about helping you to navigate this path and create rich and heart-centred connections.

I help you to create a #calmhappyhomelife or #calmhappyclassroom.

Our house is a much calmer place; we both feel better connected to our kids, more aligned with each other, and generally better equipped to deal with the ups and downs of parenting. Kylie was really insightful, while also challenging us and supporting us along the way. We cannot recommend Kylie and the ‘Becoming a Compassionate Parent’ course enough.
— Julia & Dean, Auckland

My Philosophy:

  1. Understand that your child's behaviour is how they communicating a need/needs

  2. You know your child/ children better than anyone

  3. Recognise when you are judging yourself to return to presence

  4. Know your limiting beliefs and navigate your way through

  5. See that your child has their own sacred journey in life

  6. Accept and support your child as they are and they will thrive

  7. Truly hear your children with Compassionate Listening

  8. Learning from our children creates space for us to grow too

Kylie is so welcoming, and gentle. It feels like spending time with a very wise friend. She is empathetic and, magical! Each session was an awakening, thought-provoking and emotional. Very exciting growth.

Thank you so much for opening my eyes to the work I need to do within myself, and providing the support and guidance I needed to get started.

Family life is much more spontaneous – there’s much more fun, discovery and play in our daily life.

Kylie is a Certified Parent Coach and Teacher Well Being Coach, focused on helping children to be understood and valued.


Family life can be so busy that you focus on the ‘doing’ without making concious decisions about what and why you’re doing it. We really valued the dedicated time we spent with Kylie each week to stop, evaluate, reassess and make a plan for our family. Kylie’s gentle guidance, wisdom and support enabled us to focus in on what we wanted for our family and make small, but significant, changes to achieve it and create more peace and fun.

Who I am


Who I am


Kia Ora, I'm Kylie a Certified Parent Coach, and Teacher Wellbeing Coach. I am also mum of three, I'm hugely passionate about children, families and teachers…

KylieJ (19).jpg

I always felt incredibly loved and supported as a child, leaving home and going out into the world – I was shocked to see how unsupportive some people could be! I felt inspired to really create the best environment that I could at home.

Having one child with ASD and one with Dyslexia I remember I used to feel like I was being judged by others for how my children behaved. Sometimes we are just too close to see what’s really happening in our own families. We all know the behaviour our children exhibit when they need something but sometimes… we don’t know what to do.

I wondered what I was doing wrong as a parent? Why was our son behaving the way he was and why there was so much difficulty? I studied ‘Conscious Parenting’ and realised there was more to our situation than I could perceive at the time.

My Son was diagnosed with autism and we have come so far now learning how to support him. Our family have more tolerance towards each other, we can now see that each person in our home has a unique voice. We are able to see each other’s point of view and have a far more colourful way of seeing the world, accepting everyone's perspective as valid. In our case (Like any other family), we still have moments of madness (we are human after all), yet we are all far more forgiving and accepting of each other.

I'm much more of a stress-less mum and kinder human being on this planet, because I now come from a place of joy with my family. I now help support other Parents and Teachers who are experiencing blame, shame and guilt about their child's/ students behaviour and help them create the awareness to create truly nourishing environment at home and school.  


How can I help you?

If you want to find out how to discern your children’s need and accommodate them in a way that supports you too, I offer heart-centred parent coaching. My clients tell me that they get to a place where they can see where their children are coming from. In doing so they enjoy the time they spend with their children without conflict in a calmer, smoother and more supportive way.

So, if you find yourself:

💗 In emotional chaos

💗 Always putting others ahead of yourself

💗 Not understanding your child’s behaviour

I can show you how to:

💗 How to Self Love and gain self-acceptance as a Parent

💗 The tools to becoming a ‘needs detective’ to find out what the messages are beyond the behaviour.

💗 Tune inwards to find solace and emotional intelligence

Family life is much more spontaneous – there’s much more fun, discovery and play in our daily life.

We were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Kylie as our parenting coach. She has a wonderful, natural ability to interpret our complicated family dynamics and come up with practical solutions for us to move towards a more positive, conscious style of parenting. The holistic approach she takes, working through all the experiences that have led us to this point in our journey, has been enlightening and positive for us in so many aspects of life, not just parenting. There has been a huge amount of learning around how to create a connection in our family, and now when we face frustrations we have fantastic tools to work through in a way that encourages that connection. The benefits are also evident in our relationship as husband and wife, as we learn the best way to communicate with one another, and have some perspective on why we react the way we do at times! We can’t recommend Kylie enough, her intuitive and gentle style of coaching has been an enormous blessing to our family, and we are looking forward to continuing our parenting and family journey of growth alongside her.

A big breakthrough has been pausing and listening to our child’s expression of their needs – and also our own.

Working with Kylie has been both fun and hugely educational. I use to think that we could just wing it through and things would work out and although this is true to a point Kylie has really helped my wife and I unlock a whole heap of skills and tricks to help us on our parenting journey. Our weekly chats to Kylie are more like friends catching up than a “study” session. Not only have the sessions helped with our parenting but have also been beneficial for our marriage as it has allowed my wife and I to see things from each others perspective.
— Martin, Wellington
Conscious parenting is a new paradign shift in the way we look at our roles as parents. It’s turning the spot light away from fixing the child and managing the child, obsession with all things that have to do with the child and the child centric approach and really focusing on the evolution of the parent.

Do you want a Calm, Happy Homelife?


Do you want a Calm, Happy Homelife?


I’m here to help you to create the best family environment possible:

Our biggest desire is to give our kids the best chance to thrive and make the most of life – And we know that begins at home. We want to take the best from our upbringing and add what we know is most important to us in life! I help you to create a #calmhappyhomelife

I advocate for parents to:

💗 Understand that your child's behaviour is not the thing to focus on, their behaviour is communicating a need/needs

💗 Trust that you know your children better than anyone

💗 Recognise when you are judging yourself, you see more as your awareness grows

💗 Acknowledge your limiting beliefs and shift them as they arise.

💗 See that your child has their own journey, that you can't control them - that they are who they inherently are.

💗 Accept and support your child as they are so they can thrive

💗 Truly hear your children (Compassionate Listening)

💗 Learn that they create space for you to learn who you are too.

Hi I'm Kylie and I wanted to enjoy our family life more too...

I love helping parents to have a calmer, happier homelife, where you and your kids listen to each other, where there is more cooperation, you feel energised to spend time with your kids and know how to help them gain resilience, i have a particular alignment to families who have at least one 'Out of the Box' thinker...

I WOULD LOVE TO HELP YOU GAIN A DEEPER CONNECTION WITH YOUR CHILDREN

A Discovery session is a  call where together we discover what your biggest parenting challenges are and discuss how I can best support you… I am non judgemental and a compassionate listener.  

During our sessions you will discover that I am present, empathetic and engaged.

I look forward to working alongside you to become the most compassionate parent you can be.

Why I do what I do


Why I do what I do


I'm a naturally optimistic person, who is really empathetic.  I'm also a parent of three children and I wondered...

"What is happening with my children?",  "Why aren’t I getting any cooperation?",  "Is it what I'm doing ?" 

I quickly realised that it wasn't only me asking these questions, lots of my clients had these thoughts too... and there's a chance you are as well...  two of our three children have learning differences, so I understand the challenges of living with neurodiverse and neurotypical children.

The act of parenting is a huge passion of mine, especially because I am parenting two neurodiverse kids and one neurotypical...  when i trained to become a parent coach I learnt about understanding children from inside their world and how this is paramount to the connection between the parent and child.   

It fills me with so much joy to be able to offer support to parents of the world.  Especially those who are also parenting children with learning differences, I believe that parenting is a journey that desperately lacks support and I promise to support you to become the most compassionate parent you can be and to help you find the joy in it!  

"My biggest goal is to enable cultural change in the world in how people value children and value parenting. I want to see parenting viewed as a valued skill."

I truly believe the world needs less hate and more compassion and as parents we can model these values and nurture them in our children.

My children listen to me now, because I listen to them. They co-operate with me now because I co-operate with them. They are able to authentically be themselves, because I’m not trying to make them be anything other than who they truly are.

Why People love my Coaching


Why People love my Coaching


“Parenting nowadays can be confusing and exhausting, even when you feel you are doing okay there’s very little support out there for you as a parent whatever age or development stage your child/children are currently at.

Is there a better way to get out the door in the morning? Am I okay at this? Why is my child behaving in this way?

That’s where Kylie the Heart Centred Coach comes in, through her 10-week coaching course tailored to your unique needs and circumstances, you will learn a new way of parenting and way of being with your children that is incredibly positive and transformational.

Kylie’s compassionate and nurturing style will allow you to gain new insights about yourself and your relationships with your child/children. We’ve found the 10-week course has led to subtle but powerful shifts in, not only how we parent, but also how we communicate with each other and within our work places and wider networks.

It has led to deeper, more loving connections with our children and with each other. 10-weeks is not a huge investment for a job as important and rewarding as being the best parent you can be.

Make this investment in your children, your family and most of all your-self – we’ve discovered a much more relaxed, tranquil and fun-filled family life has come out of doing this course.

We completely and whole-heartedly recommend Kylie and the Heart Centred parenting courses to you.” - Aimee, Taupo

“Family life is much more spontaneous – there’s much more fun, discovery and play in our daily life.” - J.S, NZ

We found the parenting course with Kylie amazing.

It wasn’t just about how to parent but how we were parented which was a highlight for us. To understand both my childhood story and my husbands really was insightful.

With having three kids at different ages and stages and all so different, parenting was becoming challenging and we found we did not have a lot of patience.

Since doing the course I have learnt to understand the kids from how they see a situation which makes me react in a more positive way.

Best course you could do as a parent and having Kylie’s support and understanding is worth the investment for your family.

I love the family values session – it’s something that sticks with you after the course, and is an incredibly powerful tool for making both every-day and long-term decisions
