About Us

Teddy’s Inc. was launched by Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Trainer, Author and Speaker Deborah McPhilemy, who became one of the first Commercial EQ Trainers in South Africa in 2003.  She is also the only EQ trainer for families and the leading EQ trainer for Educators and Childcare Workers in the UK.  You can view her Bio and more about her at www.deborahmcphilemy.com

Teddy’s Inc. focusses on educating parents, childcare workers, au pairs, teachers and therapists in the fundamentals of emotional intelligence and personal development.  We believe that prevention is often way better than a cure.  Just like parents use precautions like nutritional supplements and immunisations to prevent their children from becoming ill, we believe that you can take precautions to help eliminate and minimise emotional trauma.  By teaching children core foundation skills like emotional intelligence and coping mechanisms from a young age, children grow up knowing what to do and how to cope.

We empower parents and educators to help their children by providing online and in-person training, resources, activities and learning materials necessary to understand key emotional intelligence skills. In this way, adults will gain the essential skills to pass emotional literacy onto young people to help them recover from bullying and other emotional traumas.
