After twenty two years of depression, Bronte Spicer found the way to be free of her thoughts and now shares the Kiloby Inquiries with her three children; Jackson (7), Ivy, (5) and Maggie (3) in their family home residing in Bendigo, Australia.
We can parent differently and stop the generational trauma from continuing. When Bronte stumbled upon the Kiloby Inquiries, the way she parented changed. She found a way to meet all parts of her children, even the ‘undesirable’ behaviours and emotions.
After being strung out from punitive consequences like ‘if you don’t do this, I’ll take that’, she leant on all of KI for Parents and Children to create a gentler connection with her family, one that felt softer, like everyone was on the same page, looking out for each other. She saw her children relax into a deeper sense of safety and security, as Bronte held the space for them to express the full spectrum of emotions, even the after school meltdowns, to help return to balance.
Bronte is a teacher, having taught in primary and special education settings. She is a meditation teacher, sacred space holder, retreat facilitator, energy intuitive and KI Facilitator. She has mentored over 50 clients using KI, helping them to find peace and freedom to be themselves.
Bronte wrote a book It's Okay to Cry - The Gentle Way to Dissolving Depression and this has helped hundreds of people and their families all around the world to let go of their negative self-talk, childhood wounds and challenging memories.
Bronte is an award-winner writer for Elephant Journal and host to her podcast It's Okay to Cry. To learn more you can find her on social media.
"This is the first thing I've found that I would consider a cure for anxiety. We've been able to make a peaceful home; I don't feel like I need to escape home anymore. I am calmer. My mind isn't crazy all the time. I am at peace. I never thought, genetically that was a part of me. "
"I feel heard and safe with you. It is freeing."
- Janet Michael
"I've been doing KI with Bronte for two months but it feels like forever in terms of how much I've gotten out of it already and how much it has gifted me."
- Leah Kearns
"This space that you hold is true. It's safe. It's understanding. You lift me up."

"I no longer feel as though there's something wrong with me."

"I don't suppress anymore. Now I cope with those moments of sadness better."
"You leave me feeling so inspired, so light and the most full of life that I could almost imagine."
"I certainly had anxiety at different stages and perhaps was unaware to what extent or how it shaped my opinions, impacted my parenting and other areas of my life until reading through your book and listening to your podcast."
"Bronte has taught me so many incredibly practical and effective tools that have helped me (and my family) learn how to process their feelings in a healthy and helpful way. Bronte’s book should be compulsory reading for all teachers in training and KI should definitely be a part of the national curriculum."
"After reading this book and then having a few 1:1 sessions with Bronte Spicer led me to study the Kiloby Inquiries with her. It is a life changing book and one that I wished I had have read in my teenage years. The book is a game changer."
"This may be the most valuable and important book I have ever purchased! Not only an amazing story of the author’s personal life experience, but a guidebook to each and every reader that is truly life-changing!"
- Charlotte Stewart-Smith
"The teachers of my children need this to read."
