Eva Mendes' Therapy Help

LOS ANGELES: Eva Mendes has regular therapy sessions and believes it is key to her happiness.

Eva Mendes has regular therapy sessions.

The stunning actress visits a therapist once a week and believes it is key to finding happiness because she talks about her problems with someone who's not directly involved in her life.

She told In magazine: "It's great when there's a person who doesn't have an emotional connection to your life and does everything to make you feel better."

The 35-year-old beauty - who has been dating Peruvian film-maker George Augusto since 2002 - also revealed she adores being in a relationship.

She said: "I'm addicted to love."

In 2008, Eva went to Utah's Cirque Lodge rehab clinic for an undisclosed addiction, after deciding herself she needed "professional support".

Her spokesman said: "Eva has been working hard for the past year and made a positive decision to take some much needed time off to attend to some personal issues that, while not critical, she felt deserved some outside professional support."
