Karen Pratt_Profile Picture 2013

The paradigm of Appreciative Inquiry informs my style of being and working. I believe that people develop when they focus on their strengths and what makes them most alive. I believe in peoples’ innate ability to be resourceful and creative and whole.

I am most alive when I am training and facilitating or coaching in a group. My qualification as a Transactional Analyst in the Educational field informs my style of facilitating and enabling learning. Transactional Analysis is a set of models useful for people to understand their personality as well as their communication styles.

My work for a non-governmental organisation, Wellness Foundation, includes coaching the Director as well as training Community Health Workers in both urban and rural areas across South Africa over the past 8 years. I now consult to Wellness Foundation as a trainer, mentor and supervisor of young women who have come from local communities, training them to do the wellness work in their own communities.

I bring to my coaching a thorough embodiment of the International Coach Federation’s core competencies and an Appreciative approach. I am constantly immersed in the competencies both in my own coaching practice and in training coaches in Ireland, London and South Africa, being the sole South African trainer in the international coaching company, Coaching Development.

I am trained as a coach supervisor which enables other coaches to reflect on their work and continue to develop professionally. I believe that supervision is crucial for coaches to continue to work ethically and keep on top of their game as they learn more about themselves and continue to develop and deepen their work.

My work with individuals is as a coach or as a supervisor. I provide a supportive as well as challenging space for people to discover their positive core and begin to live more and more from that space. My work with groups is enabling teams and groups to connect with each other, understand each others’ styles and move towards co-creating a desired future.
