Radio host Michael “Wippa” Wipfli revealed he was in therapy and said his bi-monthly sessions with his psychologist were “extremely beneficial” as it helped him analyze things from a “perspective different”.
The Celebrity Apprentice star compared therapy to professional development, saying “even the best tennis player in the world has a coach”.
The father-of-three told host Cameron Daddo that his therapist has helped him with everything from gaining new perspectives to becoming a better parent.
“I see it as a great way for them to be able to almost imprint what’s in your brain. Presenting different opinions on why things might be happening,” he said.

Speaking on his radio show, he explained that his former partner Laura contacted his father to ask for his “famous” tomato spaghetti recipe.
Wippa went on to say that he and Lisa recently rented a house near his exes’ rental house, but they haven’t seen each other as they focus on their own respective families.
He said he didn’t know why his ex, who now has children, went straight to his dad and not his.
“The fact that she goes directly to my father and does something behind my back hurts me a little,” he added.
