Justin Bieber 'seeing a therapist'

JUSTIN Bieber is reportedly seeing a therapist.

The 20-year-old singer is allegedly seeing a £600-an-hour Los Angeles shrink, John Kenyon, to help control his impulsive behaviour following multiple run ins with the law - which left him facing charges of assault and drag racing - earlier this year.

A source told The Daily Star newspaper: "Kenyon's treating Justin in person, when possible, then over Skype when he's away. Sometimes they even have more than one session a day."

Despite the sought-after therapist's hectic schedule, the 'Boyfriend' hitmaker used his celebrity status to skip a lengthy waiting list of patients and is said to be enjoying the sessions.

The source added: "Kenyon's so booked up he doesn't normally take on new clients but Justin used his name to skip the three-year waiting list.

"It's too soon to tell if it's having a positive effect , but the fact that Justin has kept it up and passed the first batch of sessions speaks volumes.

"If he hates something he's not normally the kind of person to stick it out."

It is thought Justin was encouraged to participate in the sessions by his mother Pattie Mallette, 39, who has become increasingly worried that his erratic behaviour will be damaging to his career.

The source explained: "His mum Pattie suggested he should give it a go.

"She's constantly worried he'll do something that will ruin everything he's worked for. And he adores his mum so he agreed to do it for her."
