Hello, My name is Andre Radmall and I work as a psychotherapist and life coach to help people figure out who they are and how to live that story out in all areas of life. More recently I’ve been leading workshops around the world on subjects like eating disorders and addiction. I’m also a scriptwriter and originally trained as an actor.
In my career people often ask me ‘Why do you do what you do?’ my answer is simply that I love seeing people change and transform, whether that’s in therapy, in the theatre or film. Its all about transformation.
I was adopted at the age of 6 weeks and am therefore greatly moved by this subject.
In life it is important to have role models and mine are David O Russell, the director of American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook. I love it that he had hard times when he lost everything and came back stronger to succeed. He’s also a great writer/director.
I have joined Adoption Arena because I see how being adopted has affected my life and I wish I’d had a network of people who understood. In my section of Adoption Arena I will be writing about ‘telling and living the life story you want to’, ‘How to not be defined by rejection, Creativity and challenging life situations’, ‘Is adoption/fostering/care linked to addiction and eating disorders?’ and so much more.
Dying is easy. Comedy’s hard.
