Upgrading from cable to hydraulic brakes

Hi folks, bit new to this mountain biking lark, but am having a ball at the minute, anyways - been looking at upgrading my cable discs to hydraulic. Got Tektro cable brakes at the moment (came on the bike), but being a larger gentleman, need a little more stopping power.

Haven't decided on what make of hydros to go for just yet, but since the gear shifters are mounted on the brake levers I assume I need to get new shifters as well? If so, is that all I need to replace? Anything else I need to consider?

Cheers.
