Jennifer Aniston has reportedly started seeing a confidence counselor to prepare her for George Clooney’s wedding.
The event will mean she’ll be in the same room as ex-husband Brad Pitt and his fiancée Angelina Jolie, an occurrence that’s thought to have only happened only once since Jennifer and Brad split in 2005.
George, who is a good friend of both Jennifer and Brad’s, is set to tie the knot with his lawyer fiancé Amal Alamuddin in September. The occasion will mark the first time Brad, Angelina and Jennifer have been at the same event since the 2009 Academy Awards.
“Jen is no stranger to therapy, so she decided to seek some help. At the wedding she’ll have her fiancé, Justin [Theroux], there for support, but the thought of seeing Brad and Angelina is quite overwhelming,” a close source divulged to British magazine Grazia.
“The therapist has been helping to build her confidence and eliminate the fear she seems to have built up about coming face-to-face with them. She has also been having hypnotherapy.”
Jennifer, 45, has spoken openly in the past about her belief in therapy, claiming it’s the easiest way to feel happy again when life seems against you.
Though it is unclear whether the former Friends actress sought help the last time she was faced with her ex-husband and his new fiancée, the intimate nature of George’s wedding has reportedly worried Jennifer this time around.
“The Oscars were one thing, but George’s wedding will involve being in a smaller, far more intimate group where they won’t be able to avoid one another. Jen wants to be as breezy as possible. She has been doing role plays with her confidence coach and will be as prepared as she can be,” the source added.
