Charlie XCX took up therapy in the COVID-19 lockdown because she thought it would be the ideal opportunity to chat with a professional about her mental health.

The star said: “I started therapy at the beginning of the pandemic. And that was sort of timely and very fortunate that I was able to do that; it’s been really helpful. I definitely was thinking to myself, okay, I must take a lot of this practice into life when the world goes back to however it’s going to return to, but I already feel it slipping away from me.”

“I know a lot of my friends feel the same, like, I made these grand plans, how I was going to change my behaviour and live my life differently. And I’m trying, but it seems like that won’t last.”
