Meet Keri

Hey, I'm Keri Jarvis

I’m a Developmental Coach, Intersectional Feminist, Charity Co-Founder & Community Activist.

I’m rethinking what I would like to share here at the moment, updates soon.

“The spaces Keri creates are like fertile little gardens of ideas, experiences and supportive reflections, developed on rich community soil where empathy abounds. This group work has been incredibly valuable for me, particularly at this moment in time when there is so much to despair about in the world. Having a space to be heard and to hear other people’s experiences helped me feel less alone. Learning new coping mechanisms, ways of thinking, and questions to ask myself in a group of supportive and wise women was a really enriching experience. It’s been the highlight of my week.”

Approach to Coaching

For info on this, please head over to my Work With Me page where you’ll find details of my experience, certification and the measures I take to uphold a high standard in my Coaching practice.

Stuff Clients Say About Working With Me…

“It gave me the confidence to put myself out there and equipped me with tools to handle trolls. It educated me on how to best communicate matters/issues, gave me a huge volume of information to continue to build my learning. It held me accountable for progress on my own goals and led me to consider other ways of tackling issues that were presented to me. It didn’t feel high pressure to reach targets but definitely helped give me momentum towards my plans.

Just a huge thanks, I never know exactly what I’m getting when I work with you, but I just have this little feeling like ‘I need a bit of Keri now’ and it always gives me the push I need. I’ll always be back for more, when the feeling is back!”

People I’ve learned from…

Babes, we are not, and can never be self- made. We are Community Made (or maybe money made…). I’d love to share with you the names of some of the people I’ve learned from.

Sas Petherick- my experience of her Self Belief Coaching Academy Certification was transformative

Nova Reid- taking her Courageous Allyship Course in 2020 made me think differently in ways I still reflect on now

Bear Herbert- they gave language to feelings I couldn’t articulate and their Freely course simplified some of the complexity of being Anti- Capitalist

Lola Olufemi and Naomi Klein have had a big influence on my thinking lately- hence the Study Groups

Outside of courses and trainings there are many more, of course. As I sit here worrying about who I might forget to mention if I start listing people, I resolve to get onto a comprehensive capture of all my influences and teachers through books, social media, emails, and conversations. 

Although I simply must name my pals at Southend Care Bank- getting into the gritty, sticky relation required to bring this way of being to life.
