EXECUTIVE COACHING

I support executives to live and work in more successful ways as I challenge their coping strategies, building relationships of trust and discretion.

CAREER TRANSFORMATION

I will help you challenge those whispers that cause you to stumble in your career.

SPEAKING & WORKSHOPS

My inspirational story of healing and wholeness will enliven the audience as I speak with brutal honesty of failing and falling and rising again.

What I Can Do For You

Do you ever get stressed?

Do you ever feel overwhelmed?

Do you have to manage in isolation at the top?

Do you ever feel out of control?

As an Executive coach I work with senior leaders to support them to get out of the way of themselves and be the best they can.
My 20 years’ experience working as an Accredited counsellor enhances my executive coaching (level 5 Institute of Leadership & Management) and ensures that my work is of a depth to benefit those who require a confidential, professional and discreet space to understand themselves.
I am known as a challenging coach who facilitates focus and change in all who work with me. I ensure that my clients are given the space to understand and thrive in life and the workplace. Goals that are set are refined and achieved as I take no prisoners with my gift of questions.

How does it work?

I can travel and meet you in your office whether in Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Maidstone, London or across Kent. Or even in a mutually agreed place, if you wish you can meet me in my office where I am based in Tunbridge Wells. There is no limit to location as I successfully do executive coaching sessions via Skype.
Please get in touch via the contact page on my e mail susie@thebespokecoach.com or my mobile +447968669648 if you would like a chemistry call to discover if I am a good fit.

Testimonials

I have been a coaching client of Susie’s during a period of transition in my work life. Susie works in a very open and supportive way and from our first session together I felt able to trust her. Susie has challenged the way I think about work and has enabled me to see things from different viewpoints. She has encouraged me to look at myself as a whole, rather than maintaining a narrow focus on what I do and who I am in the workplace. She has helped me to come up with strategies for breaking old, unhelpful habits, and for putting into place new practices, drawing on my experience both within and outside the workplace. Susie has enabled me to look at the experience I have, and to recognise where my strengths and interests lie. With Susie’s help I have been able to reflect on past experience and its potential application to future opportunities. Working with Susie has been a really positive experience.

Katie Jones, Former Partner at Clyde & Co

I went to Susie when I felt that the pressures of work were becoming too much. Excessively long hours in a stressful job, not seeing my family from one day to the next and never having any “me” time, was having a detrimental affect on my ability to function, at work and at home.

I had no pre-conceived ideas as to what i wanted the sessions to achieve, I just knew that something in my life, or the way i reacted to it, needed to change. With an open mind I attended 6 sessions, and by the second session I was amazed as to how much difference it had made to every aspect of my life.

Susie’s approach of seeing past the words you use to answer a simple question allowed her to probe deeper into where perceptions came from and allowed me to open up to myself as well as her. We built a level of trust in such a short space of time that Susie was able to discuss past problems that I had long “forgotten” about and yet were still having an impact on every decision I was making in my adult life.

This has had a long-term benefit as I am now more aware of stress triggers and can accommodate fluctuations in my work/life balance much easier. I would strongly recommend Susie to anyone who needs to redress the balance and consider the benefits that can come in a relatively short space of time. It could be truly life changing.

I came to Susie at a point in my life where I felt something was missing.

While I have a good job, beautiful fiancée I still felt lost with work stress and loss of my wonderful mother.

Coaching allowed me time to talk about things I wanted to talk about without feeling a burden to the listener.

It opened my mind more into believing that in some situations you have little to no control, no matter how hard you try.

Susie in genuine in her approach to coaching and will put you at ease immediately, I would always highly recommend her.

Matt Wray

We came across “THE BESPOKE COACH” service when we were in the process of planning interventions aimed at tackling stress in the workplace in a view to supporting initiatives devoted to the prevention of the occurring of related mental health issues.

We have favoured a broad approach where the opportunity of relying on a bespoke, flexible and efficient coaching service gives us the confidence of providing our staff with valuable help.

In fact, Susie has always been available when we needed her and prompt on acting upon our staff’s individual needs and personal circumstances.

Feedback has been positive, with staff experiencing and reporting positive change in their lives. Many thanks!

Susie coached me on identifying my direction and aims, self management and to have a positive view of self.

She helped me to attune to my vision and sense of calling. I am now much more able to deal with negative thoughts and doubts and I have developed techniques to assist effective management.

Working with Susie was an inspiration; her exquisite blend of active listening and calm assertion was engaging and she’s full of insight and good old common sense.

I’d highly recommend her!

Michael Haselden

I came to Susie for coaching on management and would highly recommend her. I became more aware of how I came come across and learnt to let go of things – always aiming to strike the right balance. I found Susie very easy to talk to and down to earth.

Emma Allwright

Susie’s coaching enabled me to bring long term goals into real goals rather than pie in the sky. We focussed on health and the importance to my family, this helped me to change my thought processes to I can and not just carry on with the same excuses. It was really beneficial and she was very easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend her.

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.

Permission to cry.

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.
