Life is heart-achingly beautiful. There are moments you wish you could hold onto forever.  It’s also messy, challenging and mysterious. Everybody has an issue they're struggling with, no matter how good their life looks on paper. Sometimes you win, and it’s intoxicating. Sometimes, in spite of your most heroic efforts, you lose and it’s makes you question everything.

We all wonder what epic feat we might be capable of,  if we weren’t always second guessing ourselves, or fearing failure. Don't we all share the desire to live a life we feel proud of?  Don't we all want to understand our gifts and talents and use them for our highest good?

So how do we find what we’re looking for?  How do we create better circumstances?  How do we learn to enjoy our life, even while striving to make it better, richer and deeper?  

I combine two powerful methods, which together help solve problems, create transformations and begin to reveal profound levels of satisfaction in our personal and professional lives. It is the intersection where perennial wisdom meets contemporary coaching.

Mindfulness brings clarity, insight, acceptance and harmony. It is the most powerful technique to heal your life.

Whole Life Coaching connects the dots between your values, purpose, gifts and talents, allowing you to create a compelling personal vision for the future,  empowering yourself towards your highest point of contribution, and making it easier to reach cherished goals.



Most of us are so hard on ourselves. 
Take a moment
Sit down and breath
Marvel at your life
At the suffering that made you stronger
At the grief that softened you
At the kindness you have experienced in others
At the joy you have noticed in the most ordinary of things
In the love of family and friends
Despite everything, you are here, still growing
Still seeking, still trying
I hope you are proud of yourself.


Hello, I'm David Frank Gomes.  Welcome to my work  and online home.

What people say about working with me

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.

— Michael Haldane / Executive Producer - NorthKamp
Once in a while in life, you meet someone that changes your life in such a way that you’ll always remember the moment you met them and how grateful you are for it. David is one of those people for me and, 18 months later, continues to be a positive force of knowledge, motivation, deep insights and conversations. He’s a kind and wise soul that defies typical labels. He’s much more than a life coach or a mentor. David is someone you can explore and dive deeper into your path knowing he’ll always be there for you, and deeply devoted to working his magic with you to bring you where you need to go.
He has a subtle yet very powerful way of doing what he does. And it’s always done with love, care and the highest of intentions. David is such a gift to anyone he works with.
— Pascal Tremblay - Creative Lead & Founder - The Good Kind / Creative Solutions For Social Impact.
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 did not know what to expect from life coaching, but in the space of three months, I made more positive changes than I had in the last two years! I started working with David because I was stuck in a rut. Not only did he help me get out of this rut, but his ability to delve deeply into what makes me tick was life changing. His questions and practical approach always challenged and pushed me in positive ways. His ability to cut through the noise and get to the root of an issue is a true gift.
— Liam Seed - Body Transformation Coach- Vancouver, BC
David is more than an executive and leadership coach. He will support you to becoming the best human being possible. His approach is not ordinary or predictable. He will inspire you to breakthrough your toughest obstacles while providing the space for continued pause and reflection. Get ready to open yourself to new possibilities and own your life!
— Lorie Corcuera / Learning and Development Specialist, Facilitator, Speaker, Founder - Spark Creations
Clients praise the work of vancouver top life coach
I started working with David at a time when I was feeling ‘trapped’. I hadn’t booked any work in months and was going through a rough bout of depression. I felt like David immediately understood me and designed a plan that worked incredibly well for me. 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 booked 4 jobs, not to mention feeling so much more free and liberated and 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.

Why do some people thrive while others struggle? Is there a common denominator to wellbeing and achievement? 

p.s. - It isn't money, brains or luck


The key to effective and rapid transformation

Start where you are

Use what you have, and begin no matter what the obstacles or how many times you have failed.

Don't let wins and losses define you - they are the price of admission to a life of fulfillment. 


Work from the inside out

Learn simple effective ways to tap in to your powerful inner resources.

Your inner life is the source of your hidden strength and is what powers every breakthrough


See problems as opportunities in disguise

Sometimes a wonderful gift may come in a wrapping you don't expect.

Turn your problems into questions. Turn your answers into small steps and let your steps build a bridge to a more meaningful life.


Growth mindset

Happiness is worth investing in

The Happiness Exchange Rate is a simple principle that every choice you make is an investment or ‘unit of experience’  ---   exchanged for happiness (or not).  Living a life of purpose brings fulfillment, raised self esteem, increased abundance and gives you more time to do what you love. Why not be one of those people?


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 my Satisfaction Manifesto

Whole Life Coaching is a system based on this principle.
