Richie Sadlier: Making peace with the past, dating as a non-drinker and being happier than ever
This conversation is with former Irish soccer player, pundit, psychotherapist, podcaster and now author Richie Sadlier.
2019 has been a big year for him; he got married, he completed his masters in adolescent psychotherapy and he finished writing his autobiography ‘Recovering’.
In the lead up to the books release, he appeared on The Late Late Show and revealed he had been sexually abused when he was 14 by a physio he has been attending, for back pain.
‘Recovering’ is genuine, raw and in my opinion, a masterclass in stepping away from shame and taking your power back. He’s been a non-drinker for 8 years and is in a great place in his life.
In our chat, he shares how he met his wife Fiona, he talks about his relationship with his Dad, his experience of alcoholism and his new found love of sea swimming.
Triggers : references to alcoholism, sexual abuse.
