Simone O’Keeffe | Supervising Social Worker

Hello, my name is Simone and I am one of the Supervising Social Worker’s from Foundation Fostering. I have been a qualified Social Worker for 12 years; I have experience of working as a Social Worker within a Looked After Children’s Team in the Local Authority and within other fostering agencies. I love my job and building relationships with foster carers and children. I am especially passionate about therapeutic parenting and supporting carers to build relationships and attachments with children to enable them to heal from the traumas they have experienced. I have recently completed my Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy Level One and I enjoy being able to use these principles in supporting children and carers. Out of work I love to spend time with my family and friends.
