About Me

You deserve to finally put YOU and YOUR dreams first.  I can help you!

Suffering career fatigue? Like you, I’ve experienced the daily grind of dragging myself to a job where I was always a square peg in a round hole. I longed to feel more fulfilled, valued and authentic, but instead just felt unhappy, exhausted and lost. I completely understand where you are at. My role is  to support ambitious individuals like you to 'naturally excel' in their careers and achieve careers that in harmony with their talents, values, visions and goals.​


I'm Anna Colebourne

I love working with clients in transition as it is so rewarding to be part of someone's journey as they learn more about themselves and transform their lives.​


My wealth of experience is rooted in a career in the City working as part of corporate HR Teams and advising business schools, universities, public sector and charities. During my time in the City,  I have worked at Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, Bank of Ireland and PricewaterhouseCoopers. I have also worked for BPP Law School, University of Essex, Regent's University London and charities such as the British Heart Foundation, CfBT and Family Lives.  I regularly conduct executive coaching and redundancy coaching for the organisations Executive Connexions and Outplacement First as well as running my own coaching practice. I am an executive and careers coach with twenty years experience of working with senior management and leaders to graduates.


 Through a range of creative coaching tools and techniques,  I help my clients increase their self awareness and redefine feelings and emotions so they develop better skills to make informed and empowered decisions.  So wherever you are right now, I can help you develop the strength, strategies and self-belief to succeed and design the future you want.
