From the best-selling author of Mid-Life Career Rescue, Stress Less and How to Find Your Passion and Purpose: a powerful, inspiring, and practical book about boosting resilience, overcoming obstacles and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks.
Are you feeling flat? Despondent? Stressed or lacking energy? If so, you’ve come to the right place. It’s time to turn up the volume and get your vitality back.
Bounce offers short, sound-bites of stand-alone readings designed to help you cultivate resilience and awareness amid the challenges of daily living.
Gently, conversationally, and with humour Bounce offers strategies for seeing and thinking differently. For many people, the approach is nothing less than transformational.
More than a collection of thoughts for the day, Bounce: Overcoming Adversity, Building Resilience and Finding Joy offers a progressive program of holistic—mental, emotional, physical and spiritual—study, guiding you through essential concepts, themes, and practices on the path to well-being, joy, and happiness.
The teachings are gently humorous, sometimes challenging, occasionally provocative, but always compassionate and kind, and, seemingly infinitely wise.
Bestselling author, award-winning artist, holistic therapist, and creativity expert Cassandra Gaisford (BCA, Dip Psych) shares strategies that have worked for her personally through many of her own life challenges, and for her clients in her professional work as a counselor and self-empowerment coach.
Bounce: Overcoming Adversity, Building Resilience and Finding Joy features the most essential and stirring passages from Gaisford’s previous books, exploring topics such as: meditation, mindfulness, positive health behaviors, and working with fear, depression, anxiety, and other painful emotions.
Bounce expands upon her previous books in that it encourages a more playful approach to the seriousness of life and the ever-present stressors we all face.
Through the course of this book, you will learn practical, creative and simple methods for heightening awareness and overcoming habitual patterns that block happiness and joy and hold you back.
Amongst the many benefits you’ll reap after reading this book you’ll learn:
Gaisford’s hope is that next time you are faced with a setback or face adversity one simple word will come to mind: ‘Bounce.’ And then, having been reminded that bouncing back from setbacks in a lively manner is the test of your power, that you will then go quickly into resilience mode and apply the strategies you have learned in this book.
If when next faced with a challenge your default thoughts are ’bounce’, and ‘how can I bounce?’ then this book is a success.
Are you ready to bounce?
Let’s get jumping…
a book that leaves a lasting impression
“All I can say is “WOW!” When I first started the book, I worried that Cassandra might immediately dive right into the good stuff and I would be utterly confused. But oh no, Cassandra spends each chapter carefully building up to the tips and techniques that she shares. Nothing is impossible, not too over the top or unrealistic. “Bounce” is a book that leaves a lasting impression.”
Loved the fact it is an easy read and is so incredibly comprehensive in its spectrum of tools covered: eastern and western/physical and psychological/science and esoteric. It’s hard to find books that capture this in one space- a comprehensive manual containing a tasting platter of techniques.”

a pocket-sized life support that adds a little fun and magic to the experience
“Bounce is like a pocket-sized life support that adds a little fun and magic to the experience. Cassandra Gaisford packs a lot of helpful, useful and thoughtful information into this book. Each chapter is sort and the reader can dip in as the mood takes them and find a gem at every stop. One of the many practical strategies I am implementing as a result of reading Bounce is removing all technology from my bedroom. This is a habit born 10 years ago when I was desperate for distraction every minute of my waking day. This is a challenge I am going to rise to.

covers everything … Mind, body and soul … the physical, the spiritual, and the scientific
“Cassandra has mastered the art of speaking in clear and simple terms and has presented Bounce as an easy to read, concise–yet completely comprehensive guide to overcoming all the obstacles that stand between yourself and your passion. She presents Bounce in such a casual conversational tone which allows you to take in all the information provided and not once does she speak down to you. She has taken a truly holistic approach and leaves no stone unturned.
She lays out all the facets of overcoming your obstacles in a no-nonsense fashion and covers everything … Mind, body and soul … the physical, the spiritual, and the scientific. She evens touches on topics that may be considered ‘airy-fairy’ with believable and inspiring confidence.
While Bounce is a concise presentation, do not be fooled by its quick two-hour read, it is incredibly comprehensive and astoundingly holistic.
I have been working on a website project for most of this year and over the last couple of months I have been saying that I am almost ready to get on with it, but I keep finding obstacles and excuses to not get real with it. These obstacles and excuses simply amount to allowing myself to listen to the voices of self-doubt that choose to argue in my head. But within days of finishing reading Bounce I now have secured my domain name, have my draft website ready to go and I now know that I will be launching it before the end of the year–maybe even within the next few days.
As well as being inspiring, motivating and confidence-building, Bounce also comes with useful activities and numerous helpful resources to assist you to overcome your obstacles and follow your passion.
Cassandra definitely holds your hand but ultimately it is finally up to you to take action. I did, will you?”
