Team Support and Development


team support and developmentGeatóir provides a range of support and development packages for teams working with children and families in the health, community, social work and social care sectors.

Combining the principles and practices of play therapy, social care supervision and systemic psychotherapy, these tailored packages offer a fun and reflective space for team growth and development.  Through creative exercises, teams are facilitated through self-reflection, practice evaluation and change support.

 With a background in Social Care management and intensive family and child protection work, Deborah values the importance of space for teams to creatively reflect, access support and take a fresh look at practice.

As a practicing play therapist, trainee systemic psychotherapist and a trainer with Barnardos, Deborah connects the principles of reflection, supervision and self-care in a fun and creative way that engages individuals in self exploration and team development.
