What is coaching?

Coaching helps people overcome their limiting beliefs, lack of confidence and closed mindset that so many are held back by.

Coaching is a process in which a coach supports a client to raise their own awareness, take responsibility, think through their options and ultimately decide upon a course of action.

Coaching encourages a growth mindset and helps you see things from a fresh perspectives, which brings deep sustainable changes and helps you live a more authentic life that you love.

How I can help you

I’m in it with you, right from the start I provide calm, constructive and compassionate support.

My job as your coach is to support you and to help you gain clarity around what is missing or what's not working.

We'll work together, setting tangible goals and using a variety of coaching and NLP techniques in order for you to move forward and make changes.

It might feel challenging at times, but we’ll work at your pace.

I’ll help you recognise patterns that exist in your thinking, feelings and behaviour that are preventing you from moving forwards.

My approach is tailor made for you...

... I specialise on the following areas:

Finding your purpose

You’re ready for a new challenge, but aren’t sure what you really want to do. You like your job, but it doesn’t excite you anymore. You want to find your life purpose, but you don’t know where to start.

Finding your purpose doesn’t mean winning the Nobel prize or quitting your job. It’s about finding meaning and fulfilment in your life. Having the right balance between challenge and enjoyment. And waking up feeling motivated and engaged with life.

Breaking through fears

You might want to set a new goal, apply for a new job or ask for a payrise, but fear is holding you back.

“What if I fail?”
“What if I’m not good enough?”

BUT "what if you are good enough?"

I’ll help you uncover your fears and beliefs, and help you challenge them and find new perspectives.

It isn’t about getting rid of the feelings of fear completely. It’s about finding the strength and courage to step out of your comfort zone.

What happens when you discover, develop and become your best self?

About Ryan Aquino

Born and raised in England to Filipino parents, I graduated in London with a BSc Psychology degree then moved to the Netherlands in 2004 ‘for love’.

I worked successfully as an Account Project Manager for Software Distribution, managing and developing multi-million euro valued accounts. A Business Development Manager.

Outside of work and studying, I am VP of a foundation; Filipino LGBT Europe with the mandate to improve the welfare and rights of LGBT+ individuals in Europe and the Philippines. I'm also a buddy to an elderly Thai lady and a transgender Syrian refugee in Amsterdam and.... I love karaoke!

I got into Life Coaching because I have always been passionate about helping others nearby and abroad.


He is one of the best listeners I have ever met. It’s not about being silent and just nodding and saying “I hear you or understand you” he really gets you.

Ryan was literally the magnet that pulled out all the things that I wanted to do, but never did or never started doing it. It felt as if he was glueing a lot of my lost hopes and dreams together through listening and by asking the right questions guiding me to find my goals.

He is also one of the most warm and genuine people that I have ever met.

Ryan has this magical way of letting you discover yourself what is standing in your way of getting to where you want to be and what steps you need to take to get there.

He guides your through your change - your unfreeze, move and refreeze - in a way that is empowering and authentic to you, so it’s sustainable too.
