About Kyle

Life Coaching &

Life Coaching With Therapeutic Touch

Feel deeply connected and accepted for who you truly are.

 

.                  

 

Many successful people lack fulfilling connection . . .

Do you want a more fulfilling romantic life or intimate life?

Want more touch with friends or a partner?

Want deeper friendships?

Felt this way for too long?

 

 

Create the connection you’ve dreamed of.

 

  • Create meaningful friendships.

  • Create a deep, intimate relationship.

  • Feel accepted for who you truly are.

  • Feel confident with the skills to do this for the rest of your life.

 

 

The Plan:

Step 1 – Request your complimentary welcome call.

Step 2 – Do 1 to 3 required trial sessions to see if it’s a fit. 

Step 3 – Start your transformational coaching program 3 – 6 months long.

Step 4 – Create fulfilling connection and touch with friends, family and/or romantically.

My coaching equally covers self esteem, emotional health, body image, self care, health, sexuality, sex life, career/business dreams, and much more.

With half of my clients touch is never involved. We only do life coaching which is fantastic.

Others find it highly valuable to combine life coaching with platonic therapeutic touch.

Ways clients get value from this:

Learn to create fulfilling touch and emotional closeness in your social life – platonic or romantic.

Boundaries, saying no, asking for what you want.

Step through fears of touch and emotional closeness.

Let go of shame about being gay, bi, genderqueer, etc.

Any other area of life coaching because you feel safer and more supported as you transform yourself and your life.

Licensed psychotherapist, Ashley King’s review:

“Human touch is a real and vital need. And most of us aren’t getting enough of it. Enter my amazing friend Kyle Robert Hoffman, who does incredibly healing work in this domain . . . he facilitates sessions where you can be nourished by platonic, consensual, therapeutic touch. Learn to receive, ask for what you want, say no to what you don’t, and connect in our “native tongue”—the language we all spoke before we became verbal.

Your nervous system will thank me, I promise!”    http://www.psychoalchemy.com/

“As a psychotherapist, interested in what can supplement my client’s healing journey, I highly recommend Kyle’s work.  I experienced an individual session with him, so that I could observe first hand what his skills are. I can say without any hesitation that Kyle’s natural caring, empathy, insights, and professionalism, can help clients experience the necessary elements needed to integrate a sense of wholeness. Additionally, for anyone in need of healing traumas, his work offers a reparative experience. I certainly will send clients to him, whom I believe could benefit from his work as a Cuddlist.

Throughout my 30 plus years as a clinician, I’m convinced that for anyone working with a psychotherapist, a real reparative experience, such as what Kyle offers, is a real added bonus.”  -Arnie J. Vargas, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Ajvargas.blogspot.com

 

“I’m new to cuddling and was not only skeptical, but actually a bit afraid. It’s not easy being a big guy and first of all admitting that you want the touch of another human, but actually seeking that touch out. Kyle made it easy. It was filled with smiling, gentle conversation and letting me move at my own pace . . . My sessions with Kyle have been life changing.”  -John, Team Manager, Fortune 100 Company

“I was a bit skeptical that I’d really feel comfortable enough cuddling with a stranger to get much from it but Kyle’s natural energy is just so calming. Within minutes, I felt like I was in the company of an old friend. The emotional rush of being cuddling with someone who felt so genuinely caring was incredibly healing.”  -Liz, Marketing Project Manager

 

 

“Kyle is the epitome of professional and warm and welcoming at the same time. He takes time to explain what a cuddle session entails and answer any questions. He’ll ask questions to help guide the session and gently steer you toward discovering what you want or need out of the session if you are uncertain.”  -Ralph, High School Teacher 

 

I serve any gender identity, romantic orientation, physical ability, age (18+), body type & size, ethnicity, etc.

Answers to some great Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): 

 

““I’ve never done this before.  I feel nervous/scared/etc.””

Over 90% of people who contact me have never done coaching or coaching with therapeutic touch before. And most feel some feelings or hesitation about contacting me. That’s completely natural.

When you contact me I take things slow. I keep in mind that this is all new for you. We email first to see if there may be a fit. The next step is a complimentary connection call where I get to know more about you, your world, and your goals. And you can ask me any questions if you have any, or express any concerns at all and we’ll talk about them in a supportive atmosphere.

If it continues to feel like a fit, I’ll let you know what the next best step would be for you personally.

There’s never any rush. Sometimes I speak with someone and they become ready to try a session years later, or never. And that’s all completely great.

“Do you do sessions with ____? (people identifying as men, women, other gender identity, LGBTQ, my body type, having a physical disability, atypical on the neurodiversity spectrum, trauma from physical or mental abuse, who’ve been violated, etc.)”

Yes!  

“I go to therapy (psychotherapy, talk therapy).  I think working with you could be a good addition to my other therapy?”

Yes.  Therapists and my clients have found that to be very true.  Here are a couple testimonials from psychotherapists I’ve worked with:

“What if I feel aroused unintentionally during a session?”

Unintentional feelings of arousal are a completely fine human response to all kinds of things including platonic touch. It’s totally fine if feelings of arousal or erection happen unintentionally in our session. The important thing is that we will agree to never try to intentionally create or increase arousal. If it happens for you it will be your choice to talk about it if you want, or not and simply allow it to come and go without giving it any focus.  For myself and others, learning to be able to possibly have feelings of arousal while sharing platonic touch and being okay not acting on those feelings has had many benefits in our lives!

I and others I know have at some point felt attracted or a crush toward someone we were platonically cuddling.  Over time those feelings and bodily reactions faded as our bodies and minds learned from experience that the connection with this person will always be platonic. 

Also, in general when platonic cuddling was new for us it more often brought up erotic or romantic feelings for us.  Over weeks and months as we got more experience separating cuddling from erotic connection, our erotic desires came up less and less in those settings to the point that it is easily managed when it infrequently comes up.  Another factor is that our innate need for platonic touch became more and more filled.  We became less and less hungry for touch because we were getting what we needed.  I’ve found for most people the more they’re receiving platonic touch, the less that their bodies and minds intertwine platonic touch with romantic desire.  The same is also true as someone adds more and more people to their life with whom they share platonic touch or cuddling.  As we added more people to our life with whom we shared platonic touch, our intensity of attachment to any one person became more appropriately balanced.  Unfortunately I don’t have a crystal ball to say this all will happen for you as well, although it is likely.  

A great place to meet platonic cuddle buddies is at workshops/events on communication, consent, and optional platonic cuddling:

“Kyle, what is your romantic orientation?  Are you gay, straight, bi?”
I’m happy to answer this because it helps some people feel more comfortable talking to or seeing me.  It also lets you know some of my life experiences which I may draw from when helping you on your own journey.   As a reminder my practice is always platonic and I serve people of any gender identity, body type, romantic orientation, etc.
I identify as pansexual and I am very out, including in public media.  For me this means my sexual, romantic and emotional attraction is based on the overall person, on an individual basis.  It’s not based on their gender or if they’re male bodied, female bodied, etc.  For example this means I may find myself attracted to someone who has a gender identity of nonbinary, gender fluid, woman, man, etc.

“What does platonic mean?”

Platonic means non-romantic and non-erotic.  Contrary to mainstream American culture, people can enjoy touch and connecting emotionally in a platonic way.  🙂

“This was my first time I ever cuddled with a professional. While setting up the appointment with Kyle, I realized why I wanted to have this experience. I unconsciously wanted the experience to heal a prior cuddling experience with a friend that did not end well. Kyle was safe, appropriate and supportive. It was a great life affirming experience that I highly recommend. With Kyle’s help, I healed this long buried emotional trauma. Thank you Kyle!”  Alain, Entrepreneur, self growth enthusiast

“The truly special thing about Kyle though is his genuine authenticity and compassion.  I cried tears that had been building up for months, but unlike tears I’ve cried alone, I finally felt such relief that came from Kyle’s ability to make me feel seen and understood.

Kyle has a way of making you feel validated, whether it be by listening and giving tight hugs in response or sharing his own experiences to confirm you aren’t alone in your feelings. I have come away from my sessions with Kyle feeling calm, quiet, and a bit more whole. A session with Kyle is so much more than just physical comfort; his gentle energy and his compassion provide so much mental and emotional comfort as well.”  –Gina, International Business Consultant

“It’s rare in life you come across individuals that are good at what they do, and don’t treat it as a job. The best way I can describe it is he treats you like family, like you belong.

Well, that’s Kyle. He is serious about this, excellent at his craft and he loves what he does. He’s got the kindest, gentlest, and most loving personality of anyone that I know. He’s just an all around good person. Good to the marrow of the bone.

He’s just a natural at this.  He creates a clean, safe and calm space. Gentle conversation and talking throughout the sessions at just the right moments. He gave me the gift of courage to think about things in my life that I may not have done otherwise. This journey has been life changing for me.

Kyle is modest too. I tell him thank you all the time for being able to help me find some of the keys that were lying around on the floor of my memory. Then, giving me the courage to use those keys and face what was behind doors that I might not have otherwise opened. But he immediately turns it around telling me that I did all the hard work, he was there to assist.

I would say to anyone that is reading this. If you’re thinking about enlisting the services of a Cuddlist and looking to find someone that has the heart for what they do, look NO further. Kyle is someone you should contact! You won’t go wrong. I appreciate all he’s done during the time we’ve connected!!!”  -John, Team Manager, Fortune 100 Company

“Kyle is awesome! He is a gentle soul who genuinely cares about people, their lives and their general well-being. He shows compassion, empathy and connecting during his cuddle sessions!
Kyle reminds me that I am important and lovable! He provides a safe warm hold and touch that is both soothing and healing! His gentle nature comes through in his conversation and in his therapeutic holding!
Kyle knows how to connect to me on a personal level while incorporating multiple holding styles for both of us.
Kyle is lighthearted and authentic. He has a warm smile and a soothing voice that is well suited for one on one holding. Kyle creates a bond, encouraging conversation if I want it, with strong yet gentle holding.  Each session is personalized for the moment.
I love Kyle’s gentleness and authenticity while ensuring safety and healthy boundaries. Kyle always establishes preferences by asking me specifics and having me ask in return. My needs can change per session. Kyle is extremely aware and amenable to what is most beneficial at any given session. I feel relaxed, accepted, affirmed, soothed, and appreciated!
He’ll warm your heart in a soothing and emotionally healing cuddle session!
Human touch is essential to good health!
Thank you, Kyle, for your warmth, sincerity and connection!” -Brad, Massage Therapist
