Specialised in: Success mindset; Creativity; Stress, Anxiety & Depression; Fears & Phobias

Tony is an internationally accredited coach with the International Coaching Institute. He's passionate about ensuring that every client he commits to working with receives the very best coaching experience possible and derives real value from the experience.

He is dedicated to enabling his clients to live successful, healthy and fulfilling lives. He believes that we all have unlimited potential - the secret is in finding the key to unlock it. Tony helps his clients find their unique key and also helps them to identity and easily remove or overcome the roadblocks that stand in the way of their success and happiness.

Tony's path to helping others navigate their way to happier more successful lives started with his own recovery from a period of stress and anxiety. With help from an NLP life coach he got his life back in balance. This positive experience with NLP and hypnotherapy triggered his natural curiosity. The more he learnt about these powerful and effective personal development tools and techniques, the stronger grew his desire to become an expert in their application, and then to help others as he himself had been helped.

Tony says, “So many people that I work with, are driven to enhance their lives but find themselves stuck or unsure of how to make positive changes. Many are afraid of failure or success. Afraid of what others might think. Afraid to do things differently. Afraid of doing things that their parents would not have done or approved of. As a result they describe lives punctuated with dissatisfaction. I provide my clients with the life skills they need to become, unstuck, more courageous and to move forward towards their goals. I help my clients regain the feeling that they are in control of their lives and to understand themselves and the world around them. I help them find the answers that will bring them the wealth, health and fulfillment they desire.”

Tony is originally from Warrington in the north west of England. As a newly qualified chartered accountant, he arrived in NZ in August 1986 to begin a two year, fixed term, contract with a large accounting firm. Tony loved Wellington so much that, after the contract ended, he decided to make Wellington his permanent home.

During a thirty year business career Tony worked at a senior level in a number of large organisations providing advice directly to CEOs and executive leadership teams. He lead, and was involved in, a number of organisational change initiatives and experienced first-hand the adverse emotional and physical impact that change, when handled badly, can have on individuals. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales, a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand and a member of the UK’s Institute of Risk Management.

Specialises in: stress & anxiety management; lifting depression; removing fears, phobias & unhelpful habits, enhancing self-esteem & confidence; building a success/wealth mind-set; unleashing inherent creativity.

Tony is outstanding

Ed Lester HPD DipCAH Founder NZ School of Professional Hypnotherapy (2013)

Tony is an outstanding NLP practitioner, hypnotherapist and life coach. He is a man of integrity–talented and passionate about helping others overcome challenges and achieve their goals. I definitely recommend you talk to him to discuss your needs. With his caring, professional approach he will help you get amazing results.

Fear of spiders

Mary Mitchell, Wellington (2013)

I have always had a fear of spiders. When I encountered one I would panic and feel repulsed. After a couple of sessions with Tony I no longer experience these emotions. I am amazed that such a phobia can be overcome by hypnotherapy. I am now able to control my fear of spiders and remove them from the house. For me this is a great result.

Lighthouse Hypnotherapy

Carol Karl, Wellington (2013)

I went to see Tony Yuile of Lighthouse Hypnotherapy and after just 3 sessions, I walked out of his office feeling like I was the healthiest person on the planet.


The first consultation is generally for 90 minutes, this allows for a productive start for you the client. Any following sessions are for one hour.

Tony will send you a contract and some client history questions to complete prior to the session, this ensures you get the most out of your time together. All sessions are conducted in a safe and relaxed environment.

What is your investment? 90 minutes - $207 NZD

For this option I recommend focussing on one specific issue.

If you decide to upgrade to a package, this session counts as the first session of the package. Each package includes 1 x 90 minutes followed by 60 minutes sessions.

3 sessions$460 (save $23)
5 sessions$685 (save $47)
7 sessions$854 (save $181)

[Note: All prices include GST]

The majority of clients purchase the 5 session package and then add on more sessions if required (additional sessions are at a reduced rate of $122/session).

All packages include: email support for the duration of the coaching package.


During the first few sessions I will tend to send you a fair bit of information for you to read in your own time, so that our coaching sessions are used most efficiently. You are also free to email me as much as you wish with thoughts, questions and updates. I also set tasks, depending on what your needs are at the time. I respond to all emails within 1 business day.


It is preferred that you pay for your selected package prior to the commencement of the coaching. However, a payment instalment option is available (e.g. 3 session package = 3 instalments of $155). Each instalment is paid at the end of the particular session.

Payment can be made by credit card, eftpos or bank transfer.

The details required to make payment via bank transfer:

BNZ a/c 02-0520-0213157-00

Please include your name in the reference field when making the transfer.

When it comes to proactively designing and creating the life you want to live, there is usually some uncertainty about how long you will need to work with a coach. Whilst each session is paid for individually, Tony asks that his clients commit to a least three sessions at a time. This ensures that a solid foundation is laid on which to build momentum towards success. There is no obligation to continue with all three sessions. You are free to end the coaching arrangement at any time you feel that you have achieved your goal or that you are longer obtaining value from the sessions.

For those clients who have a particular problem or issue that they want to resolve or overcome two to three sessions is usually all that’s required to achieve the changes you desire. Take a look at the client testimonials. Because every client is unique Tony tailors his approach to suit each individual client.

If you wish to book a Breakthrough session, this is a 6 hour session generally over 2 days. This will allow us to ensure you have breakthroughs, clear any negatives from your past and create your empowering future.
