Our Story

Over many years of working around the world, in a vast array of industries, businesses and environments, we noticed common themes running through nearly every workplace –
ineffective communication, lack of trust and respect, poor leadership skills.  The result was often accidents, poor wellbeing, physical and mental distress, job dissatisfaction and ultimately stagnant business growth with limited resilience.

Yet a few workplaces shone out as a way to do things differently, where we saw inspiring leadership and workplace cultures of trust and respect, of thriving and innovative business.

We believe all workplaces can be like this. that through a focus on developing inspirational leadership and taking a more people-centred approach business can transform themselves and be more adaptable to future challenges and change.

Using the core philosophy from the Safety Differently school of thought and incorporating the essential element of psychological safety in the workplace we offer a range of solutions to help your people and your business to grow.

We will work with you to develop a tailored solution to meet your unique needs, to help your people and business grow and reach their potential.

Everyone has the right to live and work free from harm. We believe that people are the solution, not the problem.

Dare to do things Differently.

Susanne Dick

Counsellor & Coach

Whatever reason brings you to counselling, I offer you a safe space to talk. Our mental health and well-being are what matters to me and the heart of my work is to support people to navigate life’s ups and downs, grow and find meaning and purpose in their life. I bring a variety of life and work experiences from both the UK and Australia to my approach. I work across the adult age range, from adolescents. I value and respect diversity and work across cultures and backgrounds to provide an individual, empathic and collaborative approach for each person to explore what is happening in their life and explore areas of change.


John is a genuine thought leader on safety. 

His approach is both human and pragmatic and as such it’s one that will make an enormous difference to people’s lives and wellbeing. 

I’ve had and have the pleasure of working closely with John and he’s a joy to watch in action.

Working with John was a pleasure, he has a great wealth of knowledge and his dedication, care and enthusiasm is infectious.

John can make you excited about the positive changes safety and safety differently can bring to you and your company.
John is the most authentic safety leader I had pleasure working with.
