Seosamh is a Registered Social Worker with an MA in Social Work from Plymouth University. He has a reputation for campaigning strongly for a better experience for children & young people in the care system and, most especially, care leavers. Seosamh was in care as a child from birth to 18 years old.
Seosamh has an undergraduate degree (BTh) from the University of Oxford and an MA from the University of Sheffield (Theology). He achieved his MBA from Brighton University.

Beyond the Silence – Autoethnography An Act of Will
Beneath Silence was written under Seosamh's birth name, Patrick Coffey. Seosamh has discontinued the publication; it is therefore now out of print - although available from resellers (at extraordinary prices). It had a highly successful run, but Seosamh decided to re-write it as the opening chapter of his NEW Memoir, Beneath Silence.
