Ellie Goulding is the latest celebrity to smash mental illness stigmas by talking openly about suffering from debilitating panic attacks, and how she got help for them. The singer opened up to Canadian magazine Flare to discuss how she got a hold on her panic attacks with the help of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT. According to Dr. Ben Martin, CBT is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people’s difficulties, and so change the way they feel.
