Charlamagne tha God
I meditate, I have a therapist, I walk every day.

Sure, I’ve had some bad times, but everybody does. But people don’t get to talk about them like I do, unless they do to a therapist. People don’t get to put them in the paper like I do.

If you’re truly in a band and you guys have been together for a long time, there’s a family bond that you have. In fact, I’ve talked about this with therapists, especially if you’re talking about a relationship, because when you’re with somebody, you’re going to your family, and she’s alone.

Eating disorders are usually nothing to do with food. Parents need to be with their child to see them through it. All the therapists in the world can’t help if the parents aren’t present, loving, and proactive.

I say it with my tongue firmly planted in cheek but there’s truth to it – being a comedian is very close to being a therapist. When you’re working smaller clubs, you’re listening. You’re feeling an energy, you’re going with a tone but when people start yelling out, you almost start a conversation with people.
Dane Cook
In top-down processing, which is normally what we do in psychotherapy, we talk about our problems, our symptoms, or our relationships. And then the therapist often tries to get the client to feel what they’re feeling when they talk about those kinds of things.
Peter A. Levine
I had a talk with my older son a couple of days ago. I explained to him that I went to a therapist and I found out that I wanted two things very much: I wanted children and I wanted acting. My therapist said to combine this will be very hard. And being a parent is the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
Sofia Helin
I went to Rwanda with my wife who had been going for the past three summers. She is an art therapist who works with survivors of the genocide.

But that trail through the trees has become my therapist, my personal trainer, and my best editor.

In 1998, I received treatment for my knee by an Israeli therapist. We spoke about Israel and I mentioned ‘Scooterman’ and he just froze. It was like he had met Elvis. I thought he was kidding me and then he called his brother, they yelled to each other over the phone, and then I believed him.

Meghan Markle
Billie doesn’t actually like recording sessions at all. We like making music together. She doesn’t like going to some big studio and having them pretend to be a therapist for a couple hours. So by default, we always make the good stuff together.
I don’t need therapy. I’m not going to see a therapist; comedy acts as my therapy. I put my problems out there. I talk about them. I talk about everything before anybody has a chance.

I practice yoga at home to a TV show called ‘Inhale,’ taught by Steve Ross. I figured that if the people on the show could stretch that deep then I could too. I ended up pulling my hip flexor.

I work with a place in Santa Monica called Phase IV. My doctor recommended them to me when I started losing weight. They help people train for things like triathlons or biking and running races. They offer physical therapists, testing, lectures.

Jay London
When I was a small child we were allowed to wait up until midnight on 31 December. Then as the TV chimed, Dad would run to the front door and open it, welcoming the New Year air. This is the kind of entertainment you make in poor families, and cry to your therapist about when you’re rich.

Any therapist can give you the expertise of their education, but we all know there’s that person in our lives that’s been like, ‘Hey, one time I did this thing,’ and that will stay with you for so much longer than the stuff that probably should, because it’s from direct experience.
Karen Kilgariff
I am not a therapist. I am not a spiritual leader. These elements are in the art: it is therapeutic, spiritual, social and political – everything. It has many layers. But art has to have many layers. If it doesn’t, then forget it.
Marina Abramovic
I once had a therapist fall asleep on me. That really wrecks your self-esteem.
Jim Norton
I think everybody I’ve seen has come from some other therapy, and almost invariably, it’s very much the same thing: the therapist is too disinterested, a little too aloof, a little too inactive. They’re not really interested in the person; he doesn’t relate to the person.
Irvin D. Yalom
My concept of an advice giver had been a therapist or a know-it-all, and then I realized nobody listens to the know-it-alls. You turn to the people you know, the friend who has been in the thick of it or messed up – and I’m that person for sure.
Cheryl Strayed
I’ve always been the locker-room jokester, the fun guy, the guy who keeps it loose and easy. But also, on Sundays, the guy in that huddle jumping up and down, telling guys, ‘Hey, get it going. Let’s go.’ Firing everybody up. So I’m part relaxation therapist and part Red Bull.
Michael Strahan
Obama fans become more and more glum that he keeps flubbing the very role he was expected to be so good at: Therapist to the nation. The Great Comforter.
Tina Brown
Years ago, I met once a week, 9 A.M. sharp, with a therapist whom I will call Dr. Mason. We would settle in well-worn chairs, Dr. Mason, a slender, balding middle-ager in blazer and striped tie, and me, an anxious academic in Levi’s and tweeds.
Lee Gutkind
The only real experiences I’ve had with therapists were the ones who were working with me and my family when my mother was ill.
Kevin Spacey
When I was 20-something, 30, I fell down a flight of stairs and hurt my back. I went to a therapist who said don’t get out of bed until you do certain stretches, and I’ve been doing them ever since. I guess I’m the original yogi.
Carl Reiner
I would love to do the therapist on ‘Two and a Half Men’ again or just work with Charlie Sheen.

With ‘Little Accidents’, I spent probably three months working with a physical therapist, just understanding, starting from square one, about the neurological makeup of what happens when you have a stroke or what carbon monoxide poisoning does to your body.
Boyd Holbrook
I spent three months with a physical therapist understanding what a stroke is. I asked, ‘What is a stroke?’ I didn’t really know. It’s okay to mimic something, but I really needed to understand the signs.
Boyd Holbrook
I’m so unqualified to be a family therapist.
Mae Martin
There are 80 jobs in which women earn more than men – positions like financial analyst, speech-language pathologist, radiation therapist, library worker, biological technician, motion picture projectionist.
Warren Farrell
I think everything is going to be devastatingly sad – when the phone rings, I know somebody in my family’s been hurt, somebody’s going to die. I’m sure a therapist would go, ‘That’s not a good way to live,’ but every time it’s not that bad thing, I’m so thankful and appreciative.
Sandra Bullock

Kathy Hilton
No success will ever quench your thirst – my rich person’s therapist told me that.
Sara Pascoe
I have spent a lot of time studying the issue of relationships, how I grew up, my parents’ influence on me. I’ve talked to a therapist,; I’ve looked inward spiritually at myself, and what it seems to come down to is that I’m a Sagittarius. Please don’t make me reveal more than that. It’s tough enough as it is.
Garry Shandling
All the textbooks talk about avoidance as a classic hallmark of anxiety disorder. So you need a therapist who is sympathetic and understanding but will also push you to do precisely the things that scare you.
Scott Stossel
Colleges produce more sports therapists than engineers. Perhaps because America is a sporty country: a lot of outdoors.
Azim Premji
I don’t have to lay on the couch and see a therapist because my therapist is in my paint brushes.
Abbey Lincoln
Old-school guys, they don’t need to see the doctor, the massage therapist. We’d come in when we was 21; we’d go right to the court and start shooting.

My therapist was like, ‘What brings joy to your heart?’ And I was like, ‘I like to see teeth. I guess maybe I should have been a dentist.’
Tiffany Haddish
Being hummed at by someone with magic hands while they knead your neck is good for the soul, but it won’t make you giggle for days afterwards. In fact, the second the smiley therapist stops and says, ‘You can put your robe on now, the hour is up,’ the joy and wonder sort of leaves the room.
Claudia Winkleman
Each State has its own health insurance mandates, and some of them are good, but there are about 1,800 of them all across the Nation, including provisions for acupuncturists, massage therapists, and hair replacements.
Timothy Murphy
My therapist says I still haven’t got in touch with my anger. Maybe one day I’m going to explode. But I’m still really happy. I know it looks like a strange and painful upbringing – all those experiences led me to the paths that I’m on now.
Drew Barrymore
Fighting for kids has been my lifelong mission. Right out of high school, I went to work at a camp that served disadvantaged adolescents. When I became a recreation therapist, I worked with children battling severe mental illness.
Laura Kelly
I know that if I could really understand mental illness, then it would be appropriate to make a big career shift. I would become a therapist and a leader in terms of mental illness. But I’m not in the position.
John Forbes Nash, Jr.
I find the English amazing how they got over 7/7. There were no multiple memorials with people sobbing as they would have been in America. There, they are constantly scaring people, but at the same time, people think nothing of going to see a therapist.
Gwyneth Paltrow
My mom is a therapist, and my dad has a doctorate in psychology, and growing up, I felt ‘very understood.’
Rachel Platten
There is no ‘ultimate goal of therapy.’ Thinking there is some ultimate or universal goal of therapy is one of the most fundamental errors of our field. To me, that concept is rather arrogant, as if therapists were some kind of spiritual experts who knew what human beings are supposed to be like.
David D. Burns
You do not need a therapist if you own a motorcycle, any kind of motorcycle!

A physical therapist does some unbelievable stretching with me.
Brian O’Driscoll
I’ve been to therapists my whole life. I find the less attention I pay to food, the healthier I am. Any obsession is dangerous. And a whole country that’s obsessed with one thing, unless it’s, like, jeans, it’s very dangerous. Everyone’s obsessed right now with carbohydrates in this country. It’s ridiculous.
Christina Ricci
I didn’t never have to go to a therapist. I just always put it in a song and you heard me.

I respect knowledge of the psyche. I would be a therapist if I weren’t an entertainer.
Jessica Simpson
I’ve been to therapists my whole life.
Christina Ricci
My daughter Mira’s first media experience was with the first-generation iPad more than five years ago. Her speech therapist used this with her to encourage her to talk, as she was speech delayed. I watched as she immediately navigated the iPad naturally, with such ease.
Raney Aronson-Rath
A massive thank you also goes to everyone at the SFA for looking after me since I was a young boy, including Frank Reilly, Doc McLean, Jonesy, managers, coaches, staff, the physios, massage therapists, kit men and the media staff I’ve worked with over the years.
Robert Snodgrass
You take so much on as a therapist: you just sit there and listen to people talk with you, and you’re trying to help people, and it can be draining.
Samira Wiley
I think secrets often come out. I spoke to a friend who is a therapist and I asked her if there were people who came to her and admitted to doing horrible things and she said, ‘More than you know.’
Alice Hoffman
