Katy Perry takes a step towards the stigma around therapy.
One of the hardest parts of therapy is showing up. If you are new to therapy and don’t know what to expect, the idea of sitting in an unfamiliar room and telling a stranger personal things about your life can be daunting. To help people get over the hump and demystify therapy, Katy Perry live streamed her therapy session with Dr. Siri Sat Nam Singh for Witness World Wide.
“I have been in therapy for five years,” Perry shared as part of the live stream, “and, well, it’s changed my life. Everybody’s like, ‘I could never tell, you know, my deepest darkest secrets to anyone,’ and we like swallow them, we keep them and they become petrified, and actually, the things that you fear — or whatever your secrets are — that’s why therapy is amazing.”
During the live stream Perry discussed the differences between herself, Katherine Hudson, and her celebrity persona, Katy Perry. She also spoke about her family, her love life, appearing authentic on social media and suicidal thoughts she’s experienced.
