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 avoid chronic stress and problematic anxiety, so their lives become more enjoyable, rewarding and healthier.

I have also developed a unique life changing program to help people suffering with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and related functional disorders. My program is called HYPNO4IBS. To learn more about this program head over to HYPNO4IBS

A little about me

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 northwest 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.

When I'm not helping people change their lives I ....

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

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 Improv Connection. We are a group of improvisers who regularly step out on stage to deliver unrehearsed, created in the moment, entertainment. 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 am a trainer with the New Zealand School of Professional Hypnotherapy and enjoy passing on my knowledge and experience to the next generation of hypnotherapists.

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.

What others say

I struggled with IBS for 2½ years with it having a disabling impact in my professional and personal life. I considered the HYPNO4IBS program when I first read about the evidence-base for gut-directed hypnotherapy. I was expecting symptom control at first, but as I saw results, I began to believe that a cure could be achieved. I am now cured. IBS is becoming a mere after-thought and one day soon, it will disappear completely from my thoughts. I remember once being fearful of living the rest of my life with IBS and so I can’t thank Tony enough for this life-changing program that was delivered in such a personalised way.
"Thanks to Tony, I completely got over my fear of flying. He is amazing."

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 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."
Ed Lester HPD DipCAH Founder NZ School of Professional Hypnotherapy)
"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."
Mary Mitchell
"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."
