Using nutritional and herbal medicine, combined with an anti inflammatory diet, Sally was able to not only recover from these conditions, but go onto achieve an optimal level of health and vitality that has remained with her today. Sally’s approach to her patients health care, differs considerably from the conventional medicine model, because she focuses on treating at a cellular level to effectively target the underlying root cause of the health issue, vs treating symptoms alone.  

Her strong technical background and years of clinical experience, lead her to develop a unique and effective treatment program which mentors participants step-by-step through her program, guiding them on how to target the root cause of any health condition and achieve lasting results, through restoring optimal gut health.

Nicola Vella-Burrows

Nicola Vella-Burrows

somatic movement therapist | psycho-spiritual healer | master facilitator of holotropic breathwork

Nicola perceives that the physical body is a harbour for our deepest insights, wisdom, wounds, and traumas. Her practice with clients merges dialogue with experiential somatic practices, in order to facilitate a reconnection with the body in ways that trigger our innate capacity to heal from within.

Nicola initially trained in music, dance and expressive art therapy with the Tamalpa Institute in England and California, working with individuals experiencing mental ill-health and addiction. She subsequently moved to Bali, where she underwent extensive training in breathwork. For Nicola, breathwork became the integrative practise that brought together the creative nature of the body and the spiritual wisdom of the unconscious.

Nicola explores with clients and mentees the interweaving of personal development, trauma healing, creative expression, spirituality and purpose. She creates a loving, empathic, non-judgmental environment where the whole spectrum of human emotion and experience is welcomed. Nicola invites vulnerability and empowerment to meet in this space; the ultimate conclusion is profound healing, through which the soul’s true calling can be heard.


Because their own journeys were the biggest challenges of their lives, founders Kylie and Sophie use their lived experience to help others on that path they know well themselves.

Sophie and Kylie have deep personal histories in recovery, in addition to academic, practical training and experience to really ‘get it’, and know what it means to successfully lead a sober life. Addiction treatment and helping those who suffer has become their life mission. With extensive experience in the corporate world, both Kylie and Sophie also have a strong understanding of the needs of executive level individuals and for discretion with these delicate matters.

After trying every method from rehab to 12 Step, Kylie and Sophie dug deep to work on the causes for their behaviours rather than trying to mask and manage the symptoms, and instead beat their demons successfully with hard work in the right areas of their lives. They decided to help others and together formed From Here On. Kylie and Sophie work together to assist individuals suffering with addictions, free themselves from the shackles and lead fulfilling lives. Addiction treatment and helping others find recovery is a cause they are deeply dedicated to.

As your recovery coaches, they will help you identify your blind spots or triggers, and work with you to develop and strengthen a set of tools to keep you on track, even in the most challenging situations. They'll also be there to ground you with support, guidance and accountability for when things feel tough. While recovery from addiction is the primary focus, Kylie and Sophie address your whole life, encompassing health and wellness, self-care, and coping skills.


Kylie Butler

Kylie’s clients often choose to work with her as she brings her wealth of broader corporate, life and academic experience to her coaching. Kylie has been coaching executives for ten years and specialised her coaching practice to focus on addiction and trauma recovery in 2019. During her prior 15+ year Human Resources career she held a number of senior leadership roles, including Head of People & Culture and Talent Director.

Kylie has always had a deep interest in understanding people’s psychological drivers and has spent many years studying to better understand the human mind. Kylie has paired continual academic study with the study of Buddhist philosophy and meditation. Recently she studied Complex Psychological Trauma under Dr Reshie Joseph (MBBS. MSc.) and is a certified Recovery Coach (certified by the APCB). She also dedicates a significant portion of her time to recovery service and aid work, recently co-founding an aid project in Bali.

Kylie is in recovery from alcoholism and her personal recovery journey spans the last ten years. Kylie’s coaching style is a combination of motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness, and draws on the latest neuroscience. Her approach is direct, compassionate and action-oriented. Her clients often comment on her smarts, kindness and the fact that she is unwaveringly supportive. Originally from Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Kylie now lives in Bali and works globally via Zoom.

Sophie Aghdami

At the heart of Sophie’s recovery coaching practice is a firm belief in an individual’s capacity for change and personal transformation. She also truly believes in the value of a coach, because it’s one of the main reasons she is thriving in life today, free from past damaging patterns and behaviours.

Experience is our biggest opportunity to grow, and Sophie uses her personal transformative experiences to help others encounter long term, rewarding personal growth and life satisfaction 'on the other side’ of addiction. It is possible to attain, and maintain, a life of meaning, purpose and joy in recovery.

Sophie’s coaching method includes evidence-based psychological and behaviour change methods, and neuroscience. She does not ascribe to one particular pathway – her approach honours individuality and tailors sessions using a range of strategies for the best outcomes.

Sophie thrives on helping others find their experience of 'flow' – a state of being in which you are fully immersed and at one with what you are doing. The mental, physical, and spiritual are all in sync working in perfect accord toward reaching the vision.

Sophie is accredited with the International Coaches' Register: the worldwide quality mark for active and excellently trained professional coaches. Having grown up in Switzerland and the UK, Sophie now lives in Australia and works with clients worldwide.

Sophie is also deeply passionate about protecting the environment, and dedicates time to a marine conservation charity based in Australia and India.
