What Our Clients Say

Cheers, helping change lifes Bobby." 

Arnold Deo

"I highly recommend this man as a coach. Through my life experiences I fell onto hard  times in and out of addiction. I found people like bobby that were very inspirational and fundamental in me finding my life back. Bobby has thought me how to live a life free of guilt, shame,anger, self pity and depression. Bobby has a energy that is second to none, very pleased to have worked with him!"

Josh Mcdearmid

"I had it rough growing up as a child I suffered from all kinds of abuse, physical, mental, emotional at a young age. I had lived in poverty and violence, grew up in foster care all my life. 

My parents were alcoholics and never had a father figure in my life. So as a teenager and leading into a young man, I started to act out on an extreme level, skipping school getting bad grades, trafficking narcotics, drinking alot of alcohol getting kicked out of different homes all because I was hurt and angry at the world due to my past and its unsolved issues. 

I didn't know how to live life, I thought I was different from everybody else and that the way I felt and the negative thoughts I thought all throughout the day everyday, was normal. Before I met Bobby I continued down this dark path until I ended up living in a tent on the downtown east side of Vancouver at the age of 23. Broken and hopeless. I didn't know how to get out and eventually accepted my death down there. 

After meeting Bobby I decided to work with him because he had something I wanted. A happy life! Today I am free from addiction, self hatred, guilt and shame, loneliness, that uselessness I once felt is gone. 

I enjoy life today, I know how to handle life's situations and benifit from them, I grow everyday using the tools Gobind wellness has taught me, this guy is amazing and does incredible work, if he can help me I guarantee he can help you! 

Thanks again for everything Bobby I owe you my life!"

Mandip B

"I was an out going vibrant healthy guy in my youth, had a successful business, wonderful wife and kids through my twenties. 

As the years went on I found myself thinking much about my rough experiences growing up in a dysfunctional family as a child.  I started to notice that I was unable to handle certain situations and obstacles.  I was flustered at times and reacted spontaneously in a negative manner.  I used alcohol to cope with life.

Since working with Bobby my life has improved immensely, I'm clear in my thoughts, I'm focused and have a lots of energy.

I can now say that I have zest for life today.  I give thanks to Gobind Wellness and Bobby  For working with me week after week. 

Thanx again Bobby for all you do."

Pavan L

"I've had few sessions with Bobby, he is very easy person to talk too and genuinely wants to help. I was also surprised by his knowledge about the Sikh religion. I would highly recommend him." 

Pinder S

"I asked Bobby to work with my Grandmother. This beautiful, loving woman has always been worried about everyone's well being and happiness. Along the way, she lost hers.

My grandma, was pleasantly surprised by his ability to connect with her.  He reminded her of the importance of her well being / happiness as well as those around her.

Thank you Bobby."

"Created by the ocean, we came to be 

Loved by all, we came to see    

That love was all, enough for me    

But then came life and more I see    

The challenges to face ahead of me    

But growth indeed was written for me    

Now that life is complete     

Back to the ocean I proceed" 

-Bobby Bains BHSc, Life Coach


Our world is usually as big as the task at hand, being stuck on a linear level of thinking. For example, at work we are so buried in the nature of the work we are doing that we cannot seem to think of anything else that may be happening in the world. Another great example is when we are at home doing household chores and/or caring for our young ones, again, our world is as big as the house we are in.

Furthermore, when we have completed our duties and have put our kids down for rest, we most often resort to television or social media and get bogged down to the same linear level of thinking.

In most cases than not, we are unable to set aside the time to explore the possibilities of the universe at a higher level of thinking and thus create curiosity.

Albert Einstein states “The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”

To want to change is to be curious and to be curious is to be open to possibilities.
