Bounce-back Ability-Front Cover (300dpi)

Bounce-back Ability

This 192-page paperback is the result of my personal journey to increase my own resilience. It’s jam-packed full of tips and advice on how you too can develop your own resilience – the ability to bounce back from adversity – I call it “Bounce-back Ability”.

Overview: Does your life feel like it’s just one drama after another? Has the bounce gone out of your step? Has the ride on life’s rollercoaster left you feeling worn out and frazzled?

If the answer is yes, then this is the book for you. You see, this was just how I felt after a number of difficult years. Not only did I have to deal with career changes and a relationship break up. But, worst of all, the death of both my dad and of my best friend in the same year. All this, on top of the usual ups and downs of family life as a lone parent, with kids starting secondary school, and the rising costs of living, etc. By developing your own resilience, you’ll ensure you too have the Bounce-back Ability to survive the rollercoaster of modern life. In fact, you might even enjoy it. Only £14.99 on Amazon.

This little 92-page paperback of tips makes a superb introduction to my first book, Bounce-back Ability: Developing Resilience on the Rollercoaster of Life.

Overview: Resilience is not a personality trait that some people have and others don’t. It is a combination of behaviours, thoughts, and actions that can be learned and developed by all of us. I call it, developing Bounce-back Ability. By becoming more resilient, we can all learn to adapt to cope with the twists and turns on life’s rollercoaster. My clients have all benefited from the tips and advice about resilience that I’ve shared over the years and now you can too. You may not always see it, but you really are stronger than you realise.

This FREE 32-page booklet is a concise overview of my B.O.U.N.C.E. Model of Resilience TM

Overview: My simple, but effective, B.O.U.N.C.E. Model of Resilience provides a method of understanding and developing your resilience. Developing your resilience is the key to having balance in your life, increased energy and vitality and the inner strength that means you know you can cope with whatever life may throw at you.

For example, the reason you get ill on holiday is directly related to your body’s stress response. Your immune system has been damped down because of firing off your stress response so often and this means that your body does not have enough energy in your immune system to properly defend you. You are then vulnerable to viruses when you are in enclosed spaces full of other people, such as on a plane or in a busy airport. Your immune system just cannot get up enough of its soldiers to fight off the attack from the invading viruses. Hence you get a cold or a bug on holiday. Download the book to find out more…
