British singer Ellie Goulding has undergone therapy sessions to help her cope with recurring panic attacks.

The Starry Eyed hitmaker revealed in 2010 she checked into hospital after feeling like she was "having a heart attack" and subsequently discovered she suffered from anxiety attacks, which became so bad she struggled to leave her home.

Goulding has revealed she underwent treatment to address the issue, but occasionally finds the problem re-occurs.

She tells British newspaper the Daily Mail, "I couldn't even leave the house, so I decided to have therapy. A few weeks ago, I felt the attacks coming back, but I can handle them now."
