American Electronic supergroup Major Lazer members Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire have been talking about having group counselling on Skype every month and are also having hypnotherapy to help them deal with the pressures of fame.
After working with Justin Bieber on Cold Water, having Pharrell Williams sing for them and even working with Snoop Dogg, and having other hits with songs like Lean On, the group have experienced a meteoric rise to fame. As we have seen before the transition isn’t always easy and the pressure can cause stress and anxiety.
Recently, back in June former One Direction member Zayn Malik pulled out of his London after suffering crippling problems with anxiety. He even tweeted his regret at being unable to take the stage. At the time it was reported that he reached out to British superstar singer Adele, who has had hypnotherapy for her anxiety and also to help her quit smoking with hypnosis.
And in order to deal with the stress of fame, Major Lazer turned to counselling.
"We just have counselling," Diplo told the Daily Star newspaper, with Jillionaire adding, "Yeah we have group therapy once a month, Skype sessions." Xpose.ie have also reported on the story.
"We also do hypnotism and we have retreats, go to sweat lodges and that. Whatever works."
It is always hheartwarming to hear people in the public eye speaking about the fact that if you feel stressed and anxious you can do something about it. Never be afraid to ask for help.
