Singer Michelle Williams has credited her "amazing" therapist with helping her overcome her life-long battle with depression after struggling with empty feelings for years.

The former Destiny's Child star went public with her health struggles last year (13), when she revealed she first battled the blues as a teenager.

She has since spoken more openly about her experiences with the illness in a bid to help others in similar situations, and Williams insists a good counsellor is key to bouncing back from the lowest of the lows.

She tells, "I had some amazing therapy, because see, sometimes what we do is we also isolate ourselves from people that do love us. It was like getting back connected with people that honestly love me. That's what really strengthened me again."
