About Lorenza

• Executive coaching using a relational developmental approach in co-constructed systemic context
• Leadership development including ‘vertical development’ and Emotional Intelligence
• Development of coaching and coaching culture to enable collaborative working
• Representational systemic constellation and emergent knowledge techniques.

Formerly Head of Coaching in Grant Thornton's renowned Talent Development team, I introduced innovative changes to their Leadership programmes and provided ongoing innovative development for coaches and leaders. As an accredited coach supervisor since 2012, I bring passion and experience to inspire and develop coaching leaders.

Previously as a Senior Manager of Learning and Development with PwC, I designed flagship leadership transition programmes and delivered modules on coaching and leadership for PwC’s London Business School-accredited Business Diploma and have facilitated ILM level 7 Strategic leadership and Leading change programmes.

Lorenza has over twenty years’ experience as a coach since her MSc in Occupational Psychology. In her own business, she has extensive experience as an external coach and coach development facilitator across all sectors. Working internationally with clients she releases potential allowing lasting transformations in mindset, thinking and behaviour to occur.

Over more than 20 years, Lorenza has studied many coaching disciplines including Cognitive Behavioural, Gestalt, Clean Language, NLP, Transactional Analysis, Action Inquiry and Dialogue. From each she has observed carefully what works, the function of each technique, and she has synthesized these into a relational systemic approach.

At the centre of this approach is the client, their system and their goals; so expect frequent refocussing and reframing challenges during conversations to ensure our work is concentrated upon priorities for personal or organisational development, and accounting within the realities of the moment.

Lorenza is an active contributor to the Climate Coaching Alliance, facilitating dialogue and learning opportunities for coaches. She is also a member of the Accreditation Assessment team for the Association for coaching, and enjoys helping coaches prepare to submit their applications for accreditation and enjoy the learning to be found along the way.
"Further development is something coaches look forward to, yet it is easy to see Accreditation as a lot of paperwork. I help to transform the process of gaining accreditation so that you relish each step of progress along the way."

Lorenza was recently voted in as Chair-Elect for AOCS's new company limited by guarantee.

Testimonials

"You draw a lot out of me curiously inviting my thinking to go down different paths than usual - I got so much out of each session, you are very patient and very supportive."
"You certainly worked hard to get a lot out that I didn't know was there - you had your work cut out - we really didn't know the hidden depths we had and you had to show us our potential first and then help us draw from it. It's really been a challenging pleasure from which I've certainly grown a lot. "
"Thank you so much for spending the time yesterday and your insights, challenge and all-round skill. You are exceptional."

Travel & Catchment

I believe it to be more sustainable to use Zoom video-conferencing than to travel. Over the last decade, I have developed creative ways to work effectively with clients from all over the globe without resorting to flying. Recently, with the pandemic, my supervision services in trios and 1:1 via Zoom or phone have been very popular. I feel blessed that earlier action accounting for the climate emergency meant that I was set up and prepared for working with people globally from my desk in Hampshire.
