Pitt didn't decide to only do one on one meetings with therapists. He also participated in AA meetings to see how a group environment would help him. It was also a safe haven as the group didn't provide any leaks for tabloids.

“It was actually really freeing just to expose the ugly sides of yourself,” he said. “There’s great value in that.”

Pitt admitted to going through two different therapists until finding the right one. Pitt said that this is the right approach when going through therapy as you're not going to connect with every single therapist.

One therapist may specialize in hypnosis while another focuses on cognitive behavioral therapy. Trying different approaches will get you the best help in the end and make the time you spend in sessions the most productive to improve yourself. Therapy is entirely normal and proven to help, It should be something that more people should do.
