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 unnoticed.

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.

I am based in Tunbridge Wells and work across Kent in the towns of Sevenoaks, Maidstone, Tonbridge and on into London. Please get in touch if you would like a coaching blog for a publication. Contact me via e mail susie@thebespokecoach.com or call my mobile +447968669648.

How to support your staff: world mental health day.

World mental health day. World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health. https://bit.ly/1otLQ67 How do we raise awareness? First of all we talk about it! We make it as normal as discussion around how often you go to the gym. As normal as discussing healthy eating. It is vital that we normalise our health in…

How authentic are you in the online world?

It has been with interest that I have examined the statistics from my latest blogs. All about mental health in the workplace, these blogs may have challenged the reader with regard to an authentic response. So I have checked out how many have commented or liked them against the number of people who have read them. The question is what does it tell us? As an executive coach I spend many hours with senior leaders, business owners, managers and entrepreneurs. They…

Mental health and the workplace.

I was so encouraged to watch the @headstogether clip of the Duke of Cambridge speaking on the matter of mental health at a recent Workplace Well-being Conference. He used the phrase, ‘if you are able to talk about something you often have less reason to fear it’. It is so true. Starting to have an open dialogue around the stresses and strains of normal life can diminish its power. Normalising the difficulties can ensure that we are not left isolated,…

Suicide. How can Corporates provide support?

I have often worked with suicide. Men and women who have found life intolerable. They have come from a wide demographic, triggered to contemplate ending their lives by varied sets of circumstances. Now my main focus is on coaching within organisations. Individuals who can afford to pay for coaching.. A percentage of my work is still pro bono supporting charitable organisations. Poverty (a main trigger) may not be something my current client’s experience. They do however experience fear of redundancy…

Overwhelm: one curve ball too many.

When overwhelm beckons what do you do? Overwhelm is the state that occurs when we live out of balance. It is what happens when work requires solutions that appear beyond your control. We seem to pride ourselves on saying we are busy these days. Like it gives us status, worth even. Are we mistaken? Not wise but foolish? What if all it says is that we are unable to self-care and thus do not care for others? I can almost…

Love Island- the latest craze

To be honest I had no idea what it was about as I had only caught snippets, I had heard people slate it and others admit that they were hooked. I had also been told that people go on the show with the expressed aim of becoming famous. So, it was with these thoughts in mind that checked it out. I have now watched the first episode and also today’s episode and was gratified to see some familiar faces from…

World cup mania

‘It’s coming home, it’s coming home.’ The chants continue to ring out ahead the Semi-finals when we face Croatia. I am totally loving it and find myself suddenly the expert as my voice rings out. ‘What was that?’ ‘Nooo!’ ‘Come on England you can do it!’ My passion for this is something that only appears during the world cup. But what about those who faithfully watch it every week, who are the true experts and may have spent savings or…

I am an executive coach working with leaders and influencers and I am called as a woman to challenge the status quo, it’s in my blood, I have always done it.

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.
