London: Actress Charlize Theron has been finding regular sessions of therapy incredibly useful after hitting "rock bottom" a few years ago.
The 39-year-old actress, whose mother had killed her father in self-defense when she was 15, said she did not know that she needed therapy to overcome the bad phase, reportedly.
"I didn`t know that I needed therapy. I was walking through life just kind of thinking everything was fine - you go and you work and there`s this catharsis that happens when you are an actor, and that`s healthy, right?
"In my early 30s, I was kind of at rock bottom. I called a friend and said, `Will you give me the number of your therapist?` And I started seeing an incredible woman who is always just a phone call away," said the actress.
The `Million Ways to Die in the West` star said that she always wanted to take care of her two-year-old son Jackson whom she adopted in March 2012.
Meanwhile, Theron`s mother showed her a letter written by her when she was eight-year-old which said that she wanted to go to an orphanage and adopt a brother or sister.
"Maybe it was just an awareness of the fact that at that time, orphanages were everywhere in South Africa."
