Gavin has an unquenchable thirst for helping people live great lives.


A lifetime of empowering others

Gavin Bains is a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist® and seasoned Mindset Coach. 

His work is fueled by a lifelong commitment to helping people access new levels of personal power, achievement, and mental clarity.

Gavin’s mentor, friend, and New York Times best-selling author, Gary John Bishop, pegged him accurately when he said, “Gavin has an unquenchable thirst for helping people live great lives.”

In his hypnotherapy practice, Gavin works deeply with clients to access a profound sense of power and freedom to perform in all their roles in life. The depth of this hypnotherapeutic work provides an immediate and long-lasting impact. Gone are the days of the long term therapy approach to personal change and development.

Starting with the initial hypnotherapy session, Gavin’s clients continually experience mental freedom from plaguing issues in life – such as anxiety, self-doubt, lack of motivation, barriers to performance, self-sabotaging tendencies – and replace them with newfound abilities to perform in their personal and professional roles.

After a few coaching sessions with Gavin, one client shared that he had returned to seeing his psychologist who had barely recognized him. He mentioned that the psychologist told the client to … “stop working with me and keep doing the work you’re doing with Gavin… because it’s working.”

Coaching grassroots athletes to NBA All-Stars

It’s this undeniable commitment to people that fuels Gavin’s projects and passions, including his role as a coach and mentor to young soccer players at the grassroots level of a local Canadian Soccer Club.

> From NBA All-Stars to Major League Soccer players.

>> From international retailers to healthcare executives.

>>> From cosmetics industry executives to high-performing entrepreneurs in the Financial sector…


Gavin’s work impacts people and organizations anywhere he goes.

Gavin's Philosophy

I help people overcome the unconscious patterns that sabotage their power, performance and peace of mind.

What Clients Say


“I’ve been working with Gavin for the past 2 years but more intensely over the past 2 months and I’ve become not just a comedy machine (I’m a professional comedian) but also a mental toughness machine. With his help I’ve been able to turn weakness (or things I thought were weaknesses) into opportunities. I feel empowered on and off stage. I feel like a lion. His new exercises (that include elements of hypnotherapy) have been transformational. I feel like I already won, I feel like my biggest professional goals (which are in the making) already happened and that makes me perform at a whole new level. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate Gavin and how grateful I am for his teachings. The best part is that while most of the things we’ve decided to work on are for my professional life, I can apply everything to my personal life too. The best already happened, is happening and is yet to come!”

Gavin is an energetic and sincere performance coach. He helped me with my confidence and commitment to my work. Gavin puts his all into his clients. I felt so good about how he listened to my needs and requests, and then manifested the right language and movements to integrate it into my mind. I highly recommend Gavin. I would use his expertise without hesitation. He is fantastic.

Sales Agent, Financial Industry


“Gavin’s ability to listen makes him an extremely effective coach. His unique ability to provide practical applications through his coaching methodology helped me deal powerfully with my day-to-day challenges. Plus, I had the experience of being profoundly heard and listened to. He helped me truly understand how powerful I really am, moving me away from constantly undervaluing myself to a place of power which I use everyday in my line of work. I highly recommend Gavin’s executive coaching for any business leader.”

Senior Financial Executive, Professional athletics industry


“Gavin is one of the most positively charged yet down to earth people I’ve met. His energy is captivating and you quickly begin to operate at a higher, more inspired, and more effective level after spending time with him. I’ve had some of the most insightful, inspiring and personally motivating coaching from Gavin and will continue to seek his counsel in years to come. I cannot recommend Gavin’s coaching enough.”

Senior Commercial Healthcare Advisor to governments worldwide, and Children's Book Author, United Kingdom


“Working with Gavin was a life-changing experience. I learned how to have power during the difficult moments of life and to not let them define me. Gavin’s coaching gave me the freedom to capitalize on characteristics and talents that I never knew I possessed, which I use not only in my business but in my relationships. If for any reason you are feeling stuck, I highly recommend working with Gavin. His coaching makes a lasting difference in a way that’s difficult to explain but valuable to experience.”

Top 1% Realtor, Real estate industry


“I am a professional sommelier, business owner, and have managed and directed hospitality operations all over the country and I owe a great part of my success to the coaching I received from Gavin. The lessons I learned from him have transcended into different aspects of my personal and professional life and continue to have an impact today. I believe Gavin’s level of effectiveness comes from his unique approach to coaching where he doesn’t explicitly give advice but instead he guides one through an internal conversation that leads to a solution for any breakdown. I have had the privilege of watching him coach hundreds (maybe thousands) of people and I can say that he is a world-class coach. He is insightful, compassionate, exceptionally intelligent, and a superb listener. I can confidently say that I am a better leader, manager, entrepreneur, friend, and overall person thanks to the time I had the privilege of spending with him.”

Professional Sommelier & Consultant, Hospitality industry


“Gavin really helped me deal with my anxiety and depression. We had very different philosophies about what would work, but Gavin was able to adapt our sessions to fit my needs. After about a year of sessions with Gavin, I noticed some major changes in my life, for example, I no longer need sleeping pills at night. I highly recommend Gavin as an addition to any medical treatments for anxiety or depression.”

Quality Assurance Analyst, Information technology industry


“I had the opportunity to have Gavin as my coach a couple of years ago, because of life changes, our time was short. The coaching and support Gavin gave me at the time was instrumental in my business and personal life. There were aspects of my life that were challenging, I was putting up barriers that were hindering my progress. Gavin, very quickly, helped me change my mindset and I was able to get back on track. Now with new business and life adventures on the horizon, I have reached out to Gavin again to continue coaching with this awesome human, and am always grateful for his support!”
