Helping You Find Creative Ways to Work Well
We are Creative Changemakers- transforming burned out professionals into compassionate and resilient leaders with creative wellbeing, self-care & mindfulness coaching.
We want every school and workplace to be inclusive and not cause harm to anyone’s physical or mental health.
Ann set up Work Safe and Well to help business and education leaders who are sick of feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and anxious, and are looking for better ways to cope. She has over 20 years experience in managing workplace wellbeing, strengthened with a personal understanding of how stigma and bullying at work causes mental health challenges. Ann utilises key elements of her own recovery from PTSD and depression to teach business leaders how to successfully implement a more creative and human-centred approach to wellbeing at work, that ultimately impacts all areas of the business.

What our Clients Say
Having worked with Ann on several projects in Scotland, (including on mental health, promotion Healthy Working Lives and occupational health training) her knowledge, commitment and interpersonal skills have always impressed. To have Ann on the team was always real asset, she is focused on the outcome, delivery on time and ensuring that information provided is correct. Her involvement in organising IOSH at branch level shows a commitment to continued professional development and maintenance of her professional knowledge and skill. I would thoroughly recommend Ann as a contributor to any workplace and in three words – articulate, professional, committed.

Organisational Lead, Scottish Centre for Health Working Lives
Ann provided a first class range of expert services and advice on the full range of health and safety issues relating to school life. Her professional briefing papers ensured that governors and senior managers were able to maintain an up to date knowledge of developments in key areas. She responded quickly to queries and fostered excellent relationships with all colleagues at every level in the organisation. I am happy to be contacted to provide a personal endorsement of Ann’s work
