Whole Life Coaching



Hi. I'm David Frank Gomes

 I offer people a safe confidential way to solve problems, create change and find deeper purpose and meaning in their personal and professional lives.  

My gift is that I am able to connect the dots for people by finding the heartbeat of their ideas and passions.

I'm not interested in self help platitudes. I'm interested in effective solutions to help you create the conditions necessary for happiness and success on your own terms.


 Self Realization

Create deeper life satisfaction by improving your self awareness.

The empowerment process that will change your life


Take charge of your story and learn to trust yourself


know what to aim for


 Get clear about what you are aiming for.


The Happiness Exchange Rate

Growth mindset

The Happiness Exchange Rate is the principle that every choice you make is an investment or ‘unit of experience’  ---   exchanged for happiness (or not). Whole Life Coaching is the experience of investing in your own personal growth, leading to a deeper sense of wellbeing and   satisfaction.


What I have learned and offer to you.

Over the years of working with many people, I started to notice a pattern. Those individuals who have the highest levels of  satisfaction have a common denominator, and guess what - it's not wealth, brains or work ethic. They just have a higher Happiness Exchange Rate.

I have discovered that anyone can develop the capacity to improve their Happiness through a few key principles and characteristics which I outline in the Satisfaction Manifesto

Whole Life Coaching is a system based on this principle.

What people say about David

I started working with David at a time when I was feeling very ‘trapped’. I am an actor and hadn’t booked any work in months and was also going through an incredibly rough bout of depression. I felt like David immediately understood me and designed a plan that worked incredibly well for me. I felt that my coaching was customized perfectly to fit my needs, and the goal setting and ‘homework’ he gave me was explorative and eye-opening. In the last four weeks of our coaching cycle together, I started to book again and booked 4 jobs within the last month, not to mention feeling so much more free and liberated and finally excited about life again.

I have said this to my friends about my work with him and will say it again to anyone even remotely interested and considering life coaching... “Best money I’ve ever spent”. Total game changer for me.

Coaching actors for success
David is a caring soul who has always paid close attention to the journey of the heart. He has never moved with the crowd but rather always sought his own pathway to contentment and serenity. I found myself in deep conversations with him about the issues in my own journey. It is in his very nature to listen and care about what he is hearing. He has a very intuitive way of helping people find their own path of self realization and move closer to their destiny. I feel this isn’t something David has learned as much as is a gift that he has been born with.

Clients speak about transformation they experienced
David asks the most fabulously uncomfortable questions with compassion and curiosity. I usually find myself chewing on those questions for days, and our conversations unfailingly lead me to some deeper understanding about what’s important, and help me find greater clarity about what I need to do. He’s creative, direct, gentle, and 100% trustworthy.

The power of coaching with David Frank Gomes
I went to David hoping to find my calling. What I discovered was a new capacity for love and life, and leadership strengths I didn’t know I had. David always plays full out. His penchant for holding space and shining light in the darkest crevices not only showed me what I was really capable of but inspired me to be there in a new way for others.
