Halle Berry disclosed she has been in therapy on an ‘as-needed’ basis for over 3 decades to help cope with her alcoholic abusive father.

This helps her ‘mask’ her problems from her loved ones and stops her taking it out on them. ‘My mother knew the value of providing me with the outlet of an unbiased person to talk to, so I’ve done that all my life when times get stressful. It really helps me deal with stuff,’ said Berry.

JK Rowling confessed to the Guardian that ‘You don’t expect the kind of problems wealth brings with it. You don’t expect the pressure of it.’

I didn’t know anyone – anyone – to whom I could turn and say, ‘What do you do?’ So it was incredibly disorienting.”

“I had to have therapy again when my life was changing so suddenly – and it really helped. I’m a big fan of it, it helped me a lot.”
