London: Actress Cameron Diaz says that she bas been seeing a therapist for the last 15 years and it has made her more "fulfilled" and improved her life as well.

I`ve been doing it (having therapy) for 15 years and I thank god. My life would not be half as fulfilled as it is without therapy," contactmusic.com quoted the 38-year-old as saying.

Diaz has been seeking the professional help of a therapist because she was said to be a dark person in the past and the psychology expert has apparently helped her overcome her brooding personality and adopt a more positive outlook.

She also believes that her active lifestyle made her a more focused person.

"I take care of myself. I enjoy taking care of myself. For me, the aesthetic is not the by-product of it. Physically, I am very in touch with my body. I really love feeling strong, feeling capable. I love that feeling in my body," she said.

"And so when I`m not in that place, I don`t feel good. It also helps keep my head clear and it helps me stay focused on my work and my life and I just use it as a way of maintaining a certain standard of life," she added.
