Former One Direction Singer Niall Horan ‘Feels’ The Urge Of Therapy To Deal With The Pressure Of Fame: “It’s Something That People Are Recommending…”

The former One Direction singer has been advised to try counselling by fellow artists James Bay and Sam Smith 

because they have found it beneficial in dealing with the pressures of fame and he’s willing to give it a go because he trusts their judgement.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, Niall Horan said of going to therapy: “I still haven’t. And it’s something that people are recommending and I feel like I want to go and do it.

“I would count myself as a good talker. I’ve got no problem telling people how it feels… I’m at the end of my twenties and it’s done a lot in a short space of time. 

And there is a lot to look back at and look forward to and look left and right at as I say…” Niall Horan added.

But Niall Horan wasn’t quite as productive as his friend Ed Sheeran during lockdown.

He said: “I remember during the pandemic, Ed was telling me that he was writing two songs a day before noon. I was just like… I made a chicken salad and did half-a**** workout. He’s great. Ed’s one of the greatest.”
