Nicole Scherzinger needs regular therapy sessions.

The 36-year-old star, who has battled with bulimia in the past, has meetings with her counsellor over the phone because it helps her deal with her stress levels.

She explained: ''I should speak to her more but it's usually when it's a dire emergency, like 'Oh my gosh, I've got so much on my mind. I need some guidance'.

''It's good to get some perspective, get some guidance, and have the weight taken off your shoulders. You feel so much better... and just having somebody to talk to who has no agenda.''

The former 'X Factor' judge - who is a devout Catholic - also regularly attends Confession at church because she believes it's another form of self-help for her.

She explained: ''For me it has helped. But it is a case of each to their own. With Confession, because of my spiritual relationship with God, it just helps.

''For some people it's meditation, for others prayer, but because I came with my Catholic roots, I feel like it lifts something off of me. It's always good to ask for forgiveness and forgive.''

Meanwhile, the American beauty also has her boyfriend Lewis Hamilton, 29, to support her and the loved-up couple, who have been together on/off since 2007, are even considering setting up home together in London.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''I would love to live here. Lewis and I have been talking about getting a place together here and have been looking at places to buy.

''As for [dual] citizenship, yeah, quite possibly, you never know. I mean the taxes are pretty much the same over here as they are in America.''
