Halle Berry Has Been In Therapy For Over 30 Years!

halle berry has been in therapy for 30 years(1)

We all need someone to talk to once in a while… or for 30 YEARS! LOLz

Halle Berry recently admitted that she has been in therapy for pretty much her whole life to deal with the issues that pertain to her alcoholic father, Jerome, and we're amazed because we always thought The Call actress had her stuff together on her own!!

Miz Berry revealed that her pops was abusive and just plain out mean when she was a child, so instead of bottling her emotions up inside, her mother introduced her to therapy.

The starlet said:

”I've done therapy on an as-needed basis since I was probably 10 years old. My father was an alcoholic and a very abusive one, and 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."

Therapy has really helped Halle because whenever she has personal issues, she doesn't take 'em out on others because that's exactly what her father did, and she didn't want to take that route.

She said:

”I try really hard not to take my problems out on others and, in order to do that, I tend to mask the bad stuff or deal with it internally - you know, keep my chin up, put on a brave face and just keep going. If I do have a problem, I handle it so well that most other people don't even know about it.”

It's great to hear that Berry has herself under control, but we're still a little concerned that she has to rely on a shrink to keep her mind right.

We really hope thats not the case, but if it is, then do your thang Halle!

    and people always thought she was the "good girl" and all the men she dated were evil bastards, now WE all know who the crazy really is. Poor Nayla, wish she could live with her dad.

    Halle sure did not handle her "problems" with Gabriel Aubry well - even with all this therapy. She has taken her problems out on him for years. Get real Halle !

    Not surprised, emotionally stable women (no matter how rich or beautiful) don't keep attracting mentally sound men, look at her track record

    a "shrink" is a psychiatrist, not a therapist. way to perpetuate negative stereotypes of therapists.

    The men that came into her life should have also sought therapy instead of
    blaming Halle Berry for their emotional baggage and childhood drama.

    "..but we're still a little concerned that she has to rely on a shrink to keep her mind right." This is a wildly ignorant statement. You don't need to be in a crisis or crazy to see a therapist. By seeing a therapist she is in fact taking control of her life. You are stigmatizing the mental health profession, which is a dangerous thing to do in times like these.

    there is nothing wrong with going to a shrink! by perpetuating that there is you are creating a stigma towards going to a therapist. The fact that she is talking her problems out to a unbiased source because she has enough self awareness to know that otherwise she would take it out on others she is close to in her life, shows that she is smart
