Coaching Blog

As a writer I am passionate about writing and challenging the status quo and as such have been writing a coaching blog in various formats over the past years. I like to write about issues that affect us as men and women, whether at home or in the work-place. I love to shine light on the darker corners of our world with the behaviours and abuses revealed that would otherwise go un-noticed.

I am based in Tunbridge Wells working across Kent in the towns of Sevenoaks, Maidstone, Tonbridge and into London. My experiences as a writer have resulted in me writing internationally for an on-line magazine based in Australia Great Health Guide.
Also for www.Glassheel.com – Inspiration for today’s ambitious career women, and I contribute to Huffpost USA.

Pornography and domestic abuse: is there a link?

I am a coach and counsellor, working for many years with clients both male and female. However, it is the plight of women who have suffered violence in many forms that is my focus today. My 19 years counselling, spent face to face with 1000’s of people, have resulted in me forming some opinions based on this experience. This is my empirical view not the result of a trial or theory. However, I have to say that surely theories spring…

Do you have a public face, what does it look like?

How do you network? It has been an interesting year as I have networked in order to promote my coaching business. I am aware that a judgement can be made regarding who we in the first few minutes of meeting. How we walk into a room, even what we are wearing! This is useful information to consider when we prepare for, say, an interview. But what about when we spend time networking, how are we experienced then? I have always…

Building mental resilience in the work-place.

We all need to regularly check ourselves for physical signs of dis-ease, don’t we? You know the sort of thing, Body Mass Index, lumps and bumps in various places, moles and marks on our skin. What do we do when we discover any of the above? The best practice is to take a trip to the GP. Why? To chat it through, to find out if there is anything to worry about. Then, if further investigation is needed we are…

Fake it until you make it…?

Fake it until you make it. So you have done it. Your feet are under the desk. They believed everything and yet you still feel like a fraud somewhere deep within. Many people in positions of authority do not allow anyone near enough to let them really ‘see’ them. It’s a risk, after all they may doubt you, and they may start to give you those funny looks that ask the question; ‘Is she/he for real?’ You know that thing…

Authenticity versus fake news.

In this age of the drive for the perfect public face, how can we be authentic as we live? How do we not become our own fake news? Is it perfection that draws others to us, or does it drive them resolutely away? To be able to identify with someone else, we must, I believe, be able to see something in the other that resounds with us, a kind of mirror image. So if we are honest, not just about…

About Susie Flashman Jarvis

One part of blogging is to write about myself. That in itself is a challenge, not because I don’t know myself but rather, I need to think about what I want you to know.

As a coach or a therapist the general rule of thumb is, don’t disclose things about yourself unless it is useful for the client. However, I believe in congruence and I believe that someone is more likely to be themselves if they experience authenticity in another.
