Harry Styles talks mental health and says therapy made him feel more alive

Harry Styles has shared his experience of therapy, revealing that it made him feel "more alive" and that it had helped him open up.

The Adore You hitmaker began his journey of therapy five years ago and has explained that it has meant he can now face problems head on and address his mental health, rather than ignoring it.

Speaking with Better Homes & Garden for their June cover, he revealed that therapy has "opened up rooms in himself" that he wasn't even aware of.

The As It Was star explained: "I thought it meant that you were broken, I wanted to be the one who could say I didn't need it.

"But I think that accepting living, being happy, hurting in the extremes, that is the most alive you can be. Losing it crying, losing it laughing—there's no way, I don't think, to feel more alive than that."

He also spoke about how he had managed to solve his issue of "emotionally coasting" through life as well as looking into why he feels the new to be "likeable".

Fellow superstar Lizzo, who recently performed with Harry at Coachella, spoke about her close relationship with the singer.

Speaking on BBC's The One Show, she said: "We’ve been cool for a minute. When he covered my song and I covered his song we’ve been fans of each other and fast friends.”

Speaking of their performance together, she added: "He asked me to come he had an extra Gucci coat lying around so I was like alright I’ll come and wear it and sing with you.”

They performed Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive and One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful.

Harry's musical career began in 2010 as a solo contestant on the British music competition series The X Factor.

Following his elimination, he was brought back to join the boy band One Direction, which went on to become one of the best-selling boy bands of all time before going on an indefinite hiatus in 2016.
