Riana Milne Testimonial, Erin L.

Erin L. (30s) – – I came across Riana online and was intrigued by her professional expertise and blog where she started her journey in helping people. I was really touched by what I read and decided to give her a try. I hadn’t really felt a connection between a few other Coaches I have been to. Instantly, when I sat down and met with Riana, I knew that I had found my Coach! Coaching led me to gain my confidence back, getting to a point of happiness and self-worth again. Through my work with Riana, and the worksheets and her two books I read; it was an eye-opener and I was lucky to escape the biggest mistake of my life – that of a marriage to the wrong person. I am now in the most fantastic, healthiest relationship of my life! I cannot thank Riana enough for being such an amazing coach, person and mentor. She is sweet and caring, and provides great advice and asks questions that need to be asked and also guides you with answers you may not want to hear or be ready for. I have enjoyed opening up to her and becoming a better person for it and I am forever thankful. She’s an amazing woman and an inspiration! I encourage anyone who is in need of help with themselves, or a relationship, to give her program a try – and you won’t be sorry! Thank you so much Riana!



Riana Milne Testimonial, Christina S.

Christina S. (20s) – I had never experienced a coaching program and since doing the Life & Love Transformation Coaching Program with Riana, I have totally turned my life around. I am now extremely focused and doing very well in both work and school, and have detached myself from toxic relationships because I know what signs to look for so that it doesn’t happen again. Riana and this program has helped me see life and relationships for more than what they seem on the surface; making me now open to meeting new people and with the new found confidence and self esteem I needed to be out dating and enjoy the process.



Riana's Milne Testimonial Karen J.

Karen J. (40s) – Almost six years ago, I felt my world spiraling out of control. I did not think highly of myself. In fact, I thought I was not good enough, not worth anything, and people/life would be better without me. Looking back, I can say I didn’t know how to love myself. When I was 14, I lost my dad. Then, at 28, I lost my sister. At 35, I lost my mom. All the people I loved – “left” me. People would comment how strong I was and would praise me. In reality, it was a facade as I never really learned how to deal with all the loss. If that wasn’t enough, I had a few not so good relationships. Everything in my life just kept whirling around in my head and then it would turn into anger and rage.

After extensive research and reading many biographies, I came across Riana Milne’s website. Something about her website intrigued me and I was impressed with her background, schooling, experience, and resume. I reached out to Riana through email, and within 24 hours, she responded. We spoke on the phone and a meeting was scheduled. My first meeting with Riana, I felt very comfortable and safe. She welcomed me in, and we started to discuss the list of my issues one by one. Riana asked questions, offered advice, and coached me how to open my eyes to view situations from a different aspect. Sure, there were many times I didn’t necessarily like hearing the advice Riana had to offer, but I listened. After our coaching session(s) I would think about her advice, and the next session I would say, ‘you were right.’ But that’s what good Coaches do.

Through the last six years, working with Riana in our Coaching sessions, I have found her to be hard-working, honest, reliable, and respectful. Riana is unique from all other Life Coaches who I have seen. What makes Riana unique? She uses an approach to focus on purpose, desire, and goals. Riana also provides a wealth of encouragement and motivation. Life will always throw curve balls or obstacles in your path. To know I have my Life Coach, Riana Milne, in my corner is like having a security blanket. Riana was and is an essential part of helping me heal, accept, and love myself. Even though Riana is now in Florida, I know she is always there for me as she is a very caring person. I know all I need to do is call and she will find a time that works for both of us to have a coaching session. I highly recommend Riana for anyone who is struggling with any aspect of their life. Thank you, Riana. xo Kar, (NJ)



Daniel S. (20s)

At the start of this program I was a mess. I was doing badly in school, at work, in my love life, and it just felt as if nothing could go right for the longest time. I was depressed for months about myself. My confidence was at an all-time low and things just needed to change in my life. That’s when I started this program. This program helped me in so many areas of my life. Riana helped me identify the things in my life that truly make me happy, and gave me exercises that helped me make those things a habit in my life. I have a speech impediment, so for the majority of my life I was extremely self-conscious about my stutter. But Riana was able to help get over the anxiety and self-doubt that my stutter gave me through this program and the exercises she had me doing. Riana has helped get my life in order and on track! I’m more focused in my goals and know how to achieve them. I’m more confident in myself and don’t worry about what other people think in regards to my stutter. This program truly is a life changing experience. Thank you for everything!



Ally M. (Teen) – I’m currently 17 years old, and I have struggled for about half my life with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and family issues. It wasn’t until about a year ago, I started on a positive path, thanks to my therapist Riana Milne. My conditions suddenly worsened about a year ago and I knew it was finally time for me to see someone. After appropriate research to find a good therapist, I went with Riana. From the moment I met her she made me feel extremely comfortable and made me feel as though I wasn’t in this alone. On my first visit, I was able to share my story with her, something I had never done with anyone. Simply because it was extremely hard to talk about and I didn’t want people to think I was crazy. With the aid of Riana and another doctor she referred me to, I have been on a slow but successful road to recovery. Riana gave me ways to reduce my stress, in addition to advice to deal with friends and family. Not only has she helped with my mental conditions, but with everyday life. It has also been a hectic year trying to apply for college and scholarships while maintaining my grades and obtaining a job. She gave me tips and was able to lead me every step of the way. She also continues to impress me with all she has accomplished in her life, while battling struggles of her own. I would recommend Riana Milne to anyone seeking any type of assistance to get through whatever your difficulty might be.



Glen M. (40s) – Riana is amazing! She has helped our family through turbulent waters on many occasions. Riana has a gift at connecting and making you feel comfortable opening up to really identify the problem and then offers practical ways to work through the issues. I trust Riana with my most cherished treasure- my family, and highly recommend her to anyone!



Laura A (50s) – I found Riana by the grace of God. She saved our marriage. We now have a better marriage than we thought we could have. She has taught both my husband and I how to rally love each other and communicate our feelings. She also helped us with other issues that were destroying our marriage and got through to my husband which I never thought would happen. She saw me many times alone and really helped me to understand myself. We are still in therapy, not as often as we were. My husband actually looks forward to going. We know if we slip, we can see her and we come out of her office feeling renewed.



Johnny B (50s) – Riana was an essential part of helping me to heal myself and to rebound my family after a very difficult divorce. After 5 years of trying to do this for myself, it wasn’t until I hired a Life Coach, Riana Milne – to really speed up the process. I’m so glad I chose to do the Coaching, vs Counseling – which helped my entire family. My son had failed to launch, getting lost while he tried to help his mother move on, and how he is totally on the right track, back in school and working hard earning a great income. My daughter was angry and didn’t want me to move on, and had a difficult time accepting anyone I chose to date. I was choosing the wrong type of woman, spinning my wheels and ending up depressed and just immersed in my work. Today, my life is totally different, and it’s wonder to see my kids so happy an successful. I have an amazing woman in my life that I will be asking to marry. If you are thinking of hiring Riana, don’t hesitate! It is well worth the investment to personally feel and see my children feel so happy!



Bill W. (60s) – I have had two separate coaching experiences with Riana Milne, the first was focused just on me following an extended period of time with a “significant other” that had been on a long, frustrating and disappointing decline. The second, which followed along after this initial work, was with my partner who had also been separately working in advance with Riana. The work Riana and I did together was extremely helpful. I suppose it is natural to question yourself when a long-term relationship begins to dissolve, and I was no different. I had almost become convinced that I was a core reason for many of the problems in my relationship – and that this was somehow the result of personal failings. The self-assessment work we did together enabled me to re-establish that I wasn’t suddenly “unworthy”, but instead I was still fully able to be an extremely strong partner – with the right person. That allowed the question to become one of compatibility, obviously less difficult than thinking there might be a need for major personality “adjustments”. The feelings of personal inadequacy dissipated. My long-term partner and I then engaged in couples coaching with Riana. We completed an assessment of ourselves, our views of the relationship and the other person. This was useful in that it showed that there was a great deal of caring, attraction and trust between us. It allowed us to narrow the issues to a few, spending the majority our work on these points. In our case we were unable to find a solution that brought us back together, but both of us now feel that we gave it a thorough, honest try. Further, we feel comfortable that neither of us is “the problem”, which allows us to move on but remain friends and “love from a distance”. I strongly endorse using Riana as a Coach.



Erin S. (NJ, 20s) – I am so thankful to Riana for helping me land my new job. I was working in a lower level management position with my company. I was feeling ready for the next step and a new challenge in my career. As a collage graduate with management experience, you would think interviews would be a breeze for me, but I felt anxious and unsure of myself moving up. Riana was able to take all my best qualities and help me present them in a way that made me look like a shining star that would be an asset to my company. We went over my resume, S.W.O.T analysis and career development plan. Most importantly, Riana gave me the self-esteem and confidence to walk into the interview and get that job. I will always remember Riana saying “Why not you?” I took that with me into the interview, and I will always remember in whatever next step I want to take in my life “Why not me?”



Betsy A. (60s) – Riana has a true passion for helping other navigate through life’s roadblocks and helping one get their ultimate goal be it relationships career, weight issues or self-esteem. I always remember someone telling me “What makes you think doing the same thing over and over is going to produce a different result”. So true. Riana gives your valuable tools each week to get to your goals in a positive and constructive way. After ending a 5-yr relationship, she helped me pick up the pieces and move forward in my life. In her book it says to “Be who you want to attract.” If you want the best you have to be the best in all areas of your life that includes your health, appearance, finances and your home.

I also realized in our meetings that it was important to have a strong spiritual and faith based part of my life and look for a partner that has it as well. I have found it gives one a good moral compass which helps in dealing in all parts of your life be it business, friendships as well as one’s sacred relationship. One of my favorite sessions with Riana was on the beach learning meditation and the Gratitude Prayer. It starts off with deep breathing, acknowledging the things you are grateful for; then visualizing what you want and would like in your life and finishes up with asking God what would you like me to know. I am grateful for all the positive and constructive advice and knowledge Riana has shared with me. I hope if you are at a crossroads in your life and need guidance that you will do yourself a great favor and do the same.



Krystal B. (40s) – Riana has been amazing in helping me understand how and why an individual is toxic from relationship to relationship.  Her book, Love Beyond Your Dreams, is a MUST read. I’m stronger because of her coaching and I know she was the coach for me.  An online search led me to her. I called a few offices, but kept searching when it just didn’t feel right.  When I called Riana she took the time to listen and get to the heart of the matter on our very first call. At the time, that helped like you wouldn’t believe. Everyone needs support at some time. Her compassion came right through. Her methods of coaching work!



Lola & Chris K. (30s) – We did the couples intensive with Riana one month ago and I can honestly say it has completely changed our lives and our marriage. We went from the verge of separation and divorce to wanting to restore our love and get on a new and healthy path to improve our marriage and be happy again. We’ve spent three years in traditional therapy and felt stagnant. Finding Riana was a God-send and we are so grateful to her for her help and guidance. Thank you!



Korine S. (20s) – Words cannot even begin to describe how this program has completely changed my life; mentally, physically, and emotionally. I was in one of the worst places in my life when Felix and I broke up, I didn’t see any way out of the heartbreak and certainly couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I thought my relationship was so perfect and was moving in the right direction since we had just gotten back from a romantic trip to Paris and he was moving down to Florida and supposed to be living with me. It was only after we broke up that I realized I had completely lost myself in the 9 months we were dating. I couldn’t even recognize myself! I went from being so strong, independent, confident, and ready to take on the world in anything that was thrown at me. I became completely dependent on my BF which was hard when he lived all the way in New York. I thought it was ideal living so far apart since we could still have our own lives, but when we did see each other it was completely focused on us. Over time, I now realize how much it mentally affected me and changed my behavior. I was seeking attention from other guys since he was never around, I was relying on him to make it better when I had a bad day, when I was mad or upset at something that had nothing to do with him I somehow managed to make it his fault; I had become completely co-dependent.

I couldn’t sleep, eat, or concentrate at work. I knew I needed help to get back on track and found literally my saving angel Riana. I wasn’t looking for just therapy, I needed more than to just talk about my problems and feelings; I needed some sort of direction. That’s why this coaching program sounded fantastic. I have in all aspects of my life adapted the “Watch Me” attitude from the Live Beyond Your Dreams book. In my life I had always had people telling me I was never going to be anything and my self confidence was taking a hit. Now I apply the “Watch Me” mindset to everything again!

I wasn’t really sure of my criteria or what I needed or wanted in someone I was dating. Riana’s amazing book, Love Beyond Your Dreams will now forever be my go to guide whenever I’m looking to meet someone, or even when I’m in a relationship and am seeing some warning signs. It will forever be on my night stand for me to review. I will also always have my Life & Love Transformation Workbook, which I think is where I learned the most about myself. There is only so much information that sticks when just reading, and actually applying the knowledge and reflecting on how it applies to me really helped me a lot. This program may have only been 90 days, but I have gained a true friend and mentor that I look up to and I know this knowledge will last me a lifetime! Thanks for everything Riana.



Mark L. (30s) – I had just come to the end of a 2.5 year relationship and I was overcome with feelings of misery and loss. I reached out to Riana for help, coaching, and counseling. By closely following the “Watch Me” program, I began to realize that I had allowed myself to remain in a toxic relationship for far too long. My ex had slowly eroded my self-confidence and clouded my ability to see my value as a partner, and as a person. By setting goals and taking meaningful steps to achieve those goals each day, week, and month, I was able to build my self-esteem and distance myself from the painful breakup.

I learned to count my blessings and to get in touch with my spiritual side. As I took steps to improve my appearance, my finances, and my work and family relationships, my eyes were opened to the new possibilities that awaited me. I was able to find new love with a woman who is beautiful, charming, witty, and kind. My life has taken a 180-degree turn in just a few short months. I would recommend the “Watch Me” program to anyone who feels that their life needs a tune-up, but you must have an appetite for self- improvement and a willingness to do the work. I promise you won’t be disappointed with the results!



Doreen V (late 60s)– There’s a spirit of helpfulness that shines through everything you do, and even though the warmest of thanks would never be enough to repay you, please know how appreciated you are and what a true blessing you’ve been. Thank you for ALL your help and wisdom over the years; it really helped me to get through some very difficult times! Your suggestions have really helped change an almost impossible situation! God Bless you on your journey!



Jerry G. (30s) – Riana has helped many people, myself included, discover who they are and find their inner strength. She has a natural gift for helping people become more self-aware and better equipped to deal with life’s naturally occurring obstacles. I would recommend Riana to anyone looking for guidance in their everyday lives.



Tiffany C. (20s) – Riana is a truly genuine soul who has taught me to see life in a new light. Through coaching, listening, sharing and reading I have learned a new appreciation for not only what I have, but also the wonderful possibilities that lie ahead! Riana has many gifts, but her passion of helping people has touched me personally and changed my life forever.



Tony M. (50s) – After a 35-year marriage came to an end, I needed to talk to someone outside of my family and friends. I was lucky enough to have been referred to Riana at Therapy by the Sea. Riana was able to help me get through one of the most difficult times in my life and help me understand and deal with the feelings of loss. I cannot thank Riana enough for all she has done for me and recommend anyone with relationship issues to contact Riana!
