Robert encourages therapy sessions

London: Hollywood actor Robert Downey Jr encourages his friends to sign up for therapy sessions as he believes counselling changed his life for the better.

"Therapy is great, therapy just works. You just go in and... sit down and you go, `His fault!` And then start from there... I fell apart like 10 years ago and now everything is fine," quoted Downey Jr. as saying.

The 45-year-old actor has become a big advocate of therapy because it has also helped him stay sober.
