Amy Hart ‘still in therapy’ a year on from Love Island and feels ‘totally different’
Amy Hart has revealed she’s still seeing a therapist, 14 months on from her stint on Love Island. The 27-year-old former air hostess battled anxiety during and after the ITV dating show.
She said that continuing to see a counsellor has left her feeling ‘totally different’ and ‘a lot more chilled’. ‘I’m still in therapy and it’s made me totally different – I’m a lot more chilled.
My brain was always in overdrive,’ the reality star told The Sun.
‘I’m a lot more chilled and enjoy life a lot more, with a lot less anxiety.’ Her first experience with therapy was in the Love Island villa, when she chatted to a counsellor off-screen.
Amy met with a backstage therapist 12 times following her split from Curtis Pritchard. Curtis broke Amy’s heart when he returned from Casa Amor after flirting with model Jourdan Riane, leading to the infamous ‘I was coming back in here to tell you that I loved you’ showdown.
He then split from Amy and went after Maura Higgins, prompting the stewardess to walk out of the villa.
Despite the drama, Amy said she’s ‘grateful’ to the show for introducing her to therapy. ‘I did struggle at the beginning when I came out of Love Island, but you’ve got to learn to manage it. I wouldn’t have had therapy if I’d not been on Love Island, I’m really grateful,’ the TV personality said.
Amy has been open about her mental health in the past, revealing in July that she’s been working on her anxiety since the end of last year. ‘I’m learning to deal with the trolls.
I have grown up my whole life thinking I’m not good enough, I’m ugly, I’m unlikable…’ she said on Loose Women.
