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.

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…

Executive coaching AND sticking my head above the parapet.

In response to the article ‘A vision of things to come’ by Liz Hall Coaching at work magazine volume 13 Issue 1. 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. Since I was a little girl, I wanted to rescue those in need of help, choosing the mouse without a tail as my pet in case no one wanted it. Stepping…

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…

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.
