Hilary Carlile

Counselling Flower Essence Therapist

Hypnotique Protocol® Esoteric Hypnotherapist

"Hilary Carlile is recognised in the community as a dedicated holistic health professional; her therapeutic work is greatly admired and trusted by many."

I bridge the worlds of the health sector and the holistic therapeutic community.

I have worked in the health sector since 1990. I became a holistic health practitioner in 2005 when I discovered vibrational medicine and the magic of nature.

I have faced my own health challenges with three cancer events. I was clear my team in Auckland Hospital saved my life. My recovery was helped by my understanding of these events at a physical and metaphysical level. I used First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® Life Trauma essences to release the trauma, fear, and despair caused by each event or when my recovery faltered and I slipped into “why me?”. As my health improved, the New Beginnings essences supported me to move forward. I am now fit, healthy, and training to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the ascent of Mt. Everest – in the Himalayas.

Nature is here to support us, if only we ask. I love working with people as they encounter the rollercoaster of life’s challenges.

Client’s feedback

Hilary gives me a magic mix of essences. I notice I am meeting life’s challenges with confidence and I am being heard “.

Magic happened with my child; bullying issues were quickly resolved after taking the essences”.

I am a First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® Registered Practitioner with a diploma in First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand®. I have completed practical Healer and Shamanic studies in the Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Esoteric Studies®. I am a Hypnotique Protocol Esoteric Hypnosis® Certified Practitioner - to work at the level of Soul retrieval.

I grew up in England in a medical family, my father a General Practitioner and my mother a clinical psychologist in family mental health. Mealtimes were spent as a family debating changes that would make the NHS more relevant to the issues of the day. Spring and summer days were spent developing a deep appreciation of nature, discovering and collecting wildflowers and sailing on the Norfolk Broads.


After finishing my honours degree in Environmental Botany with Geography, at twenty one, I came to my mother’s homeland, New Zealand,  to discover the magic of this country she called home and to meet her family, who were my family. I started working with the environment in the NZ Hydrological Survey and now I have returned to work with the magic of New Zealand native plants using the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand®. It is no surprise that in between I worked in health; planning and funding mental health services.
