Imelda May has said that she’s “grateful to be able to get help” as she praised therapy online.

The Dubliner urged people to look after their mental health and try counselling.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday evening, the singer praised counsellors for keeping her in check.

She said: “Counsellors are amazing human beings.

“I’m grateful to be able to get help when needed. Self care is more than candles and bubble baths.

“Your mental health is important and worth the time and effort. I cannot recommend counselling enough.

“You owe it to yourself. Try it,” she added.

Imelda shared the same message with her Instagram followers and captioned it: “Wednesday love.”

Fans flocked to the comments section to thank the 47-year-old for speaking so openly about mental health and speak about their own experiences with counselling.

One woman wrote: “Absolutely agree Imelda, self care is so important for everyone. I went to a grief counseller a few years ago after a family tragedy & it really was an amazing experience to talk through all your emotions and see the light at the end of tunnel.

“It’s good for the soul to talk & express your emotions & not bottle it all up & pretend we are grand. Be brave & never be afraid or ashamed to ask for help. Love your whole being.”

Another follower said: “Totally agree. It's also good to remember that they build a relationship, and a bit like any relationship a good fit from the start is always important. Take the time to meet different ones, I learnt this probably a bit too late in my journey but learnt it none the less.”

A third chimed in: “Couldn't agree more. Well done. And can I just say that your music has always been like a form of therapy for me. I told you that before but I want to be sure that you know it.

“I also told you that your previous Life, Love, Flesh, Blood album is like a diary and people definitely relate to it. Don't ever change you. You are unique and always will be. Much love and good vibes.”
