Specialisms:  Performing Under Pressure; Stress, Anxiety & Depression Management; Overcoming Fears & Phobias; Habit Change

Hi, I’m Tony. I have a passion for helping people to perform at their best under pressure, at work, home or play.

In today’s fast paced, ever changing world many people are finding themselves buckling under the load of ever increasing pressure. Unfortunately, excessive pressure leads to stress, and we all know that too much stress is bad for our health and well-being.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

I help people develop the life skills they need to allow them to perform at their best, avoid stress and control anxiety with the result that their lives become more enjoyable, rewarding and healthier.

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

I am originally from Warrington in the north west of England. As a newly
qualified chartered accountant, I arrived in NZ in August 1986 to begin a two year, fixed term, contract with a large accounting firm. I fell in love with Wellington and, after my contract ended, I decided to make Wellington my permanent home.

During a thirty year business career I worked at a senior level in a number of large organisations providing advice directly to CEOs and executive leadership teams. I led, 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.

My Other Life

I share my life with my wife Mary and our two cats Oscar and Mojo. 

I have a passion for creative writing and wrote my first novel (a thriller)
whilst studying for an Advanced Diploma in Creative Writing.

I’m a member of Double Down, the Wellington BaseJump Improvisers performance team, and I enjoy the adrenaline rush triggered by performing in front of a live audience.

Whenever I get the chance, I love to strum a tune on my ukulele.

I'm an elected member of the NZ Association of NLP Leadership Team and hold the position of Treasurer.

I am a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales and a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand.

Helping me through my anxiety with flying

Hayley S Wellington (2018)

Thanks to Tony, I completely got over my fear of flying. He is amazing.

Tony - a fantastic coach

Janice R Wellington (2017) 

Tony was a fantastic coach and mentor for me during an extremely challenging time. Sessions were extremely well planned, structured and delivered to a very high standard. Tools and techniques delivered and learnt in these sessions will help me considerably moving forward to meet my desired outcome. Clearly the old way was not working for me so with the new techniques and toolkit I have, I am expecting to meet my desired outcome in the near future.  Thank you, Tony, for your excellent delivery of invaluable life coaching sessions, tools and techniques and I would highly recommend you to anyone who requires these services.

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.

Feeling healthy again

Carol Karl, Wellington (2013)

I went to see Tony Yuile 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:

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.

For those people who are stuck and want to change now so they can move forward with their life,  a Breakthrough Package comprising 6 hours of coaching may be the solution. This package is designed to create breakthroughs, clear any negatives from your past and create your empowering future.
