About me

Stick With It Coaching: Life Coaching in South Hampshire.

Why Get a Coach?

I believe that living a better life starts with us becoming the best that we can be.

However, whilst personal development is often simple, it is not always easy. It requires commitment and discipline to begin building and maintaining momentum.

“There are two types of pain you will go through in life, the pain of discipline and the pain of regret. Discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tonnes.” - Jim Rohn

Investing in a personal coach is one of the most effective ways to make this journey easier and help you get you what you want out of life, never having to look back bearing the weight of regret.

Imagine waking up each day with clarity and purpose, getting on with the things that matter most, getting the results you want and getting ahead in life, as everyone around is amazed as to how well you’ve got it all together. If you are committed, the right coach can help you achieve this.

Who Do I Work With?

I love to work with individuals and small businesses who are inspired to achieve great things and either want faster, better results, or have found themselves stuck in a rut and want to start gaining some momentum.

It is important that the coach and client are a good fit for each other. If you think I could be the coach for you, contact me for an informal, no obligation chat to get the ball rolling.

What to expect...

If you choose me as your coach, I will work with you to:

  • Get clear on what you want
  • Identify your roadblocks
  • Figure out what you must do and who you must become to acheive your goals
  • Get the results you are after quicker and more effectively than before

I am here to support and challenge you as you raise your standards, become your best self and start getting results.

What is expected of you?

Coaching alone will not change your life, but the action YOU take can! When you work with a coach, you are making a commitment to overcome the things that may be holding you back and you will build the mindset required to take massive action. To make the most of the coaching it is expected that you will:

  • Be committed to improving your future
  • Be prepared to be challenged
  • Be prepared to take notes and be held accountable

Get ready to work, get ready to be challenged and get ready for results.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions, I look forward to hearing from you!

Training, qualifications & experience

To help you get ahead, I draw upon my formal knowledge and training in Coaching, NLP and small business strategy.

To compliment this I have a wealth of insight from my ongoing studies into world class performance and how the world's best stay at the top of their game. I combine this with my own experiences as a mentor and business owner of 13 years as a professional drummer and drum tutor.


  • Diploma in Personal Performance Coaching - The Coaching Academy.
  • Diploma in Small Business Coaching - The Coaching Academy.
  • Certified NLP Practitioner.
  • Visiting lecturer and speaker on the subject of Getting Ahead at Universities and colleges.
  • Life long learner with a passion for learning on how to get ahead in life. I have a healthy addiction to Personal Deveolpment books, seminars and courses.


I strive towards the highest standards in all I do, a passion I share with my clients as I support them on their own journeys through life.

In my 4 years working as a coach here are some testimonials I've received:

"I came to coaching as I was struggling with my career and not making progress on the important things. I found it hard to prioritise and despite being busy I was not being effective whilst taking action. I began to doubt that I’d succeed. The coaching was mostly based on finding ideas within and through talking, discussing different ideas and making engagements to take action. Being held accountable for the engagements really helped. The coaching has helped me make tangible progress, prioritizing and focusing on the really important things. I’ve a good overall feeling, hope and new belief in being able to make things happen. Thanks Boyd!"

Andrei - Netherlands

"The sessions have been really helpful. Boyd has made me consider what I want from my business and posed questions for me to answer that I had never thought of. He has also provided a good sounding board for ideas that I have had.

Accountability has been a massive benefit to having these sessions. Each meeting resulted in a plan of action and knowing that I would be asked about the progress really motivated me to get things done.

In the short time that I have had Boyd as a coach my marketing strategy has increased, I have a much bigger social media presence and I now feel that I am running a legitimate business rather than having a hobby."

Claire - Bristol

Other areas of coaching I deal with

Small Business Coaching, High Performance, Creating Habits for Success, Getting Ahead.


Change does not happen overnight and if you are looking for lasting results, it is most likely you will benefit from ongoing support and the accountabiltiy it provides. With this in mind I provide discounts for block bookings.

Coaching sessions are between 45 and 60 minutes long and are most commonly carried out on SKYPE making the process easy, efficient and do-able the world over!
