London: Pop star Cheryl Cole refused to see a therapist following her divorce from footballer Ashley Cole as she did not want to share her personal problems with a stranger.

The `Promise This` hit maker split from her soccer player husband after allegations of his infidelity hit the headlines last year.

The British singer said that she was tempted to seek professional help following the break-up but later decided to against it, Elle magazine reported.

"It (therapy) crossed my mind but I`m not trusting enough to bare my soul to a stranger. I`m lucky that I`ve got friends and family to turn to," said the 27-year-old singer.

However, Cole who is reportedly planning to move to Los Angeles to judge the US version of `The X Factor` is keen to take a break after a stressful year.

"It would be nice to take six months out and go to a mountain top and just meditate, let myself go," she added.
