Consultant Well-being Psychologist
Dr Nick Baylis, PhD FRSA
"Helping your whole school community to flourish through the study of well-being"
Nick defines well-being as ‘the know-how and self-motivation to embrace whatever life throws at you, and to transform it into something beautiful of which you can be proud.’
Nick has spent 22 years exploring what principles, strategies and skills can help a life go wonderfully well. After lecturing the ‘Art, Craft & Science of Well-being’ at Cambridge University for eight years, (following his own Cambridge University PhD in this field), Nick then wrote
Penguin Book’s ‘The Rough Guide to Happiness’, plus 100 weekly columns as ‘Dr FeelGood’ in The Times newspaper, and he hosted a three-day Royal Society conference that included the Nobel Laureate Psychologist-Economist, Daniel Kahneman. This conference resulted in Nick co-editing The Science of Well-being for Oxford University Press & The Royal Society.
Sixteen years ago, Nick created a mentorship training-scheme, ‘Trail-Blazers’, in Europe’s largest ‘Young offender Prison’. It still runs today.
Nick is presently a Consultant & Presenter to Cambridge University Colleges (Queens’ and Trinity)… to School Headteacher conferences… and to England’s ‘National Health Service’. He has frequently given National TV and Radio interviews for the BBC and The World Service. Nick also works one to one as a well-being therapist with teenagers and adults from all walks of life.
He loves to play tennis, badminton, dance, box, sing (often at the same time) and to go out hiking with friends. Visit drnickbaylis.com
