AceShowbiz - Pink has credited couples therapy for saving her marriage.
The pop star is confident she and Carey Hart would not be together today if they didn't take time to thrash out issues with a counsellor.
During a recent Instagram Live chat, the "Trouble" singer said, "I got a lot of s**t for telling people that Carey and I have been in couples counselling with Vanessa (Inn)."
"So I talk to Vanessa on my own and I also talk to Vanessa with Carey... It's the only reason that we're still together because, you know, I think partners after a long time, we just speak... you just speak two different languages. You need someone to hear both of you and then translate it for you."
"Without Vanessa translating for me for the last 18 years, I mean we would not be together. We just wouldn't because we are not taught as kids how to have relationships, how to get along with people. I mean, what's happening in our country right now is a perfect example of that. We don't know how to love each other, we don't know how to get along, we don't know how to communicate."
Pink wed Hart, 44, in 2006 and the couple reconciled after two splits.
She admits that intimacy has always been hard for her.
"There was a moment in couples counselling with Carey, I'll never forget, in the office I had been complaining about him for years about how he's just not present, he's not here, he doesn't get it, he's not hearing me emotionally, he's not even trying to understand my language," she said. "And you (Inn) were like, 'OK, everybody shut up, stand up, put your hands on each other's hearts and just look into each other's eyes'. And this man that I had been saying won't show up for me, his feet were planted in that earth, his hand was on my heart and his eyes were looking into my soul and guess what I did? I started giggling and I looked away."
"In that moment I realised that I was a little bit full of s**t. I was the one here that was just talking and there have been many of those times."
