Lucy Bailey is Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Bounce Forward. She is proud of her beginnings as a youth worker and her 17 years of experience of working in, developing, reforming and managing children’s services, prior to starting Bounce Forward.
Lucy left school with a Math’s CSE and English O level. In an era when women’s role in the workplace was limiting, she was offered the choice on a Youth Training Scheme of typist or hairdresser, she took the latter. Earning £25 a week, with rent of £16 she dreamed of success and strived to find it. Her experience is what drives her enthusiasm for enabling people to overcome setbacks and pursue their opportunities.

Her passion is to drive a movement to influence UK policy around education to form a positive system of change with psychological fitness at the core. Lucy has directed national research projects, has an MSc in Practice Based Research, a BSc in Social Policy and Criminology, and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education.
Listen in and follow the Bounce Forward podcast Psychological Fitness: What it Takes
Using science to help individuals (and teams) recognise the importance of looking after their mental fitness and building self-awareness as a key driver for personal and professional success.
Mental fitness is the absence of mental illness. It’s linked to greater life satisfaction, reduced mortality and improved productivity.
This is not another ‘wellbeing’ course. This IS different! It’s practical, engaging and we guarantee that you will walk away thinking differently about the way you nurture your psychological fitness.
I’ve come to the end of part one of Beyond Today and just wanted to say I think the content and delivery behind the learning tools is excellent. A large part of that is to do with the way it is delivered, the message and add in things that you’ve learnt personally or continue to work on, it’s brilliant
Lucy is a fun and dynamic trainer. She kept our attention all day even when we were flagging. She was great at facilitating the group even from a far and she really knows her stuff.
Many thanks to Lucy Bailey for this self-reflection activity. Not everything is sparkles and rainbows all the time. Need to work through small everyday situations that effect different part of our lives. Brilliant!
Can I just say what an absolute joy the training was today. Lucy Bailey is clear, relevant, informed and completely engaging
I was worried this would be a ‘have a glass of water, take deep breaths and think happy thoughts’ type of session (need to examine the B underlying that scepticism…) but I thought Lucy was a great presenter. Useful new perspectives delivered well.
