Tony Vernon, Accredited Master Coach, HWC, NMC, AMC, MMC
– Professional Relationship/Couples Coach, Family & Business Coach –
Tony is an established Relationship/Couples, Family and Business Coach, because unless couples in love are personally and professional successful, their loving relationship and/or family usually suffers from the instability that happens with inadequate communication skills, character development and overall personal and professional success. Tony grew up in a broken home environment and through hard work and perseverance, worked his way out of it. After a period of ten years in which he worked with different therapists, counselors and coaches he decided to train in 1999 as a Professional Coach with leading trainers in the field at that time. Today, he is an accredited/credentialed Master Coach with the International Authority for Professional Coaching & Mentoring (IAPC&M) and an International Coach Trainer. Including his own time in therapy, counseling and coaching himself as a client he has 30+ years of coaching experience. His personal participation in counseling, therapy and coaching helps Tony to know what his coaching feels like and to know better what does, and what does not work, to help clients to provide better professional support, but mainly results. In his 24+ years of working face-to-face and virtually with clients he has worked with many notable world leaders and many celebrities. He is an entrepreneur also owning a digital marketing agency: www.purposeful-agency.com, and a partnership with Hippocrates Wellness. Tony helps couples to succeed with Love, and families or parents to be up-to-date on parental knowledge. Tony studied under Dan Hughes, Ph.D., the Founder of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) to be able to provide greater professional support to help families, parents and children and to build better relationships, because this stabilizes society, but he really helps people to become successful in all areas of life.
Tony has also built educational programs for non-profit 501c3 Hippocrates Wellness, their Plant-Based Nutrition and Wellness Program (IAPC&M accredited) and their Accredited Professional Coach Training which is International Coaching Federation accredited, International Authority for Professional Coaching & Mentoring accredited, and International Association of Therapists accredited. Tony, in 2023 has trained 1,600+ students in 63 countries many of them counselors, therapists, nutritionists, personal trainers and experienced coaches themselves and works with a capability model to help people to develop skills in love, life, relationships and business – to succeed.
Tony believes in furthering his training in personal and professional development and thus has studied with notable teachers from educational institutions to include: Harvard, Yale and Emory. He is extremely active in his commitment to learn more from the most knowledgeable, eminent professional people he can find, many of which are not mainstream – yet leaders in their own right either in theory, research, science, practical clinical work or business success. Tony is highly knowledgeable in exercise science to prevent or reverse disease, plant-based nutrition and emotional health. His personal words: ‘It is ineffective for a Physician, Therapist, Counselor or Coach, indeed any health professional not to be experienced in business and lifestyle medicine that includes: physiological needs, plant-based nutrition and exercise science and expect to be delivering improved mental health, wellness, and greater results and success for clients – lifestyle medicine and better business education must become a part of all health professionals continued professional development, and curriculums.’ His commitment to learning from leaders as mentors has taken his professional skills to a high level. However, he is always looking to learn more.

Times have changed to the extent that the pursuit of a degree is now inefficient as what is studied will most likely be outdated by the time study is finished. We must find the right mentors or leaders in professional fields, and the best intelligent and specialized educational providers and learn from them, to reach our potential, and not waste time studying work that is most likely going to be a waste of our precious time.
