A friend of Charlotte Church is saying the singer is set to hire a top psychologist to help Maria through her self-abuse problem. “My mum knows she needs counseling but I want to bring in the best people, she needs expert help,” Charlotte told the friend, according to The Mirror. “I’m closer to my mum than anyone else in the world but I had no idea this has been going on since I was five. I’m glad this has come out now – although I wish the whole world didn’t know. At least she can get treatment for her illness, that’s what it is.”
