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.

The interface between coaching and counselling.

https://youtu.be/jLD7ze6uBWw Coaching and counselling are close cousins, but where do they overlap? What do coaches need to be able to manage as they work with more mental health issues? In this webinar  I discuss the challenges coaches face, particularly as the lock-down affects so many in negative ways. It is vital that coaches are resourced to be the best they can be in these unpredictable times. #executivecoaching #leadwithgraceandintegrity

Living in lock down.

Learning to live in lock down. As the days continue long and without end before us, we need balance. When the constraints to our freedom, even if we know we are playing our part, weigh heavy on us, we need space to restore.. When our people at work and in our families suffer to one degree or another, we must find new  ways to manage. All in the balance The 1984 film ‘Karate kid’, is about a young boy, Daniel, who…

We are all afraid sometimes.

These are unfamiliar times. In these unprecedented times it is to be expected that we will become anxious and afraid sometimes. Uncertainty for the future will unleash all sort of worries. Some real and some not. The question is: How do we manage our thoughts? Last week I decided to try out my husband’s blood pressure machine. It told me that I had raised blood pressure. So I bought a new machine which arrived yesterday! You can image how I…

What are you thinking about?

What are you thinking about? Two weeks ago, I developed a cold and it launched me into an anxiety dive as I trawled the internet for symptoms of Covid 19. I wasn’t happy with one site, however professional, telling me I was safe, I trawled through the internet for days. Finally, I believed I was in the clear. Of course, I kept away from people because I did not want to give them something additional to deal with. But it…

Permission to cry.

It’s okay to cry. I work as an Executive coach and maybe you think I have it all sorted. But yesterday was hard for me. Nothing catastrophic happened. In the light of the tragedy that is playing out on across our land and world it is insignificant. I felt shame and guilt thinking I was making a fuss. But the feelings of loss and uncertainty would not leave me. Finally I shut the bathroom door and had a cry. Was…

Be the best you! Authentic leadership

Be the best you! Authentic leadership. Yesterday I spoke at an Aurora reflection session in Canterbury Christ Church University. It was for leaders and aspiring leaders across the university. It is always challenging for me to decide on how much to share when I am invited to speak at an event. The title of my talk ‘Be the best you! Authentic leadership’ required a high degree of openness.  So, the question was do I just say everything? Or do I…

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.
