Work with a Make It Happen coach

Unlocking a person’s true potential to improve their performance without teaching them

One to one coaching with a Make It Happen Coach can help you create a powerful alliance designed to enhance the life long process of human learning, effectiveness and fulfilment.

I understand it is important to operate at your optimum, at all times. Overcoming obstacles and situations that are currently holding you back from you achieving your full potential will enable you to live the life of fulfilment and personal success that you have strived for.

I truly believe everyone should have a coach and I have a hand selected team of coaching professionals all of whom have worked with a significant number of men and women on a one-to-one basis. I personally have been coached by each of my associates to ensure the the highest quality coaching is offered to you.

Chelsea Simpson

NLP Master Practitioner and Life Coach

Chelsea Simpson is a Certified NLP Master Practitioner and Life Coach with the Institute of Psychological Qualifications and Assessment (IPQA). Chelsea works with people who want more out of life, people who have challenges they want to overcome and goals they want to achieve.

Chelsea knows how powerful coaching can be, having her own life transformed in the last few years. Overcoming sexual abuse at the age of 18, Chelsea found herself in a domestic abusive relationship for the years that followed. She really lost her way and her identity. Working within the corporate world, she loved what she was doing but something was missing and it was mainly herself. Chelsea had lost her confidence and her self-esteem and this was replaced with anxiety and fear. Until one day she was ready to fight, she decided she was no longer a victim of her circumstances, she was the creator of her life and it was time to change. This is when she found NLP and coaching and began to work on reconnecting with who she was. Chelsea connected with what was important to her and learnt how to live without fear and worry.

Since becoming a coach Chelsea has worked with hundreds of people and inspired thousands. From working with young leaders at the Kent FA to working with large networking organisations, Chelsea has worked with people from all walks of life and with all different challenges. The one thing they all have in common, is they are ready to make massive changes to their current situations and they want more. One of Chelsea’s greatest achievements is speaking about sexual abuse to an audience of 2000 women at Bolton Football Stadium. Something she spent years hiding and feeling ashamed of, became her greatest tool in helping others find their strength and their value.

Another of Chelsea's biggest achievements and also her daily inspiration is her two beautiful children. She knew that no matter what she had to show them they can do whatever they want in their life as long as they have the belief in themselves and have the strength to never give up.

And that is her goal, her life's purpose, to inspire people every single day, to get them to dig deep and connect with what is important to them. To find out what they really want so they can live their life free of fear and regret, doing exactly what they love.

James Burton

Executive Coach

James was born and grew up in New Zealand. His first motor sport sponsorship agreement was completed at the age of 17 for a competitor in the New Zealand Rally Championship. His first 5 years of work were for Price Waterhouse as an accountant tax specialist. He was also a lecturer and examiner at Otago University in Tax Law in addition to being a course developer and presenter with the New Zealand Society of Accountants.

James moved to the UK in 1993 to follow the dream of expanding my amateur career in motorsport to a professional one. His speciality is commercialising the marketing platforms that top tier motorsport present. He focuses on innovation and creative deal structures. James' work resulted in the Williams F1 team being the first legacy team to go non-tobacco with Compaq as its prime sponsor, Inmarsat becoming the first ever primary sponsor of the World Rally Championship and BP Castrol becoming the title sponsor of the Ford World Rally Team, and technical partner of Ford Motor Company. More recently this work created an agreement for KPMG to be the Pioneer Innovation Partner to the McLaren Group and Partner to the McLaren F1 team. James' work has produced in excess of $850 million of new sponsorship revenue coming into Formula One and the World Rally Championship.

James has trained with both Coaches Training Institute and Coaching Development Limited (ACSTH by the ICF). I also have a mindfulness practice spanning the past 9 years and have studied personal development programmes such as the Hoffman Process and the Art of Living Programme. These add a richness to the core Coaching methodologies. James views Coach training as an on-going activity.

James felt he was in control of life, had a successful career, was travelling the world and had full social life, when in 2012 he was knocked down with a stroke as a result of a brain blood clot. His experience of the stoke is that of a clear, calm mind focused only on the day he was in, and not worried about the future. This was a transformative experience. Combined with the personal development work he had already done his interest shifted to working with other people to help them overcome life blockages, unlock limiting beliefs and improve their relations with others. James' stoke recovery experience is invaluable for understanding client issues on work life balance, assessment of life priorities and the benefit of decision making with a clear calm mind.

James brings to clients an ability to consider different perspectives based on experience of growing up in one hemisphere and working in another, a curiosity of people along with the choices they have made and an understanding of the factors that prevent transforming changes. His work style is directed towards a transformational process for clients, his manner is rigorous, compassionate, sometimes challenging if appropriate and overall guided by the desire for positive change in a client’s life.
