Justin Bieber

His People Say

Psychotherapy is Best Hope

Justin Bieber
's people are asking the singer to come back to L.A. so they can sit with him and convince him to go into therapy ... IMMEDIATELY.

Sources connected with Bieber tell us ... they have been trying to get him into rehab for months, but he has scoffed at the idea -- he won't have a conversation about it and insists he doesn't need it.

So we're told his people believe the next best step is psychotherapy ... to deal with both his drug problem and the underlying issues that have caused it.  We're told Justin has not rejected the notion of therapy and is willing to have the discussion when he returns to L.A.

Justin's team have played armchair shrink over the last year, and they believe the root problems involve his upbringing as well as the obvious -- being a child star who grew up rich and famous and got a little too used to it.

Justin's people are hoping that a judge might order him into rehab ... but the reality is that probably won't happen because the Miami offenses are not that serious.  On the other hand, if the egging case is filed as a felony, it's possible rehab could be part of a plea deal.

Cognitive Behavioral therapy would be much more beneficial. Psychotherapy can take years.

I agree Justin Bieber does need to seek psychotherapy as well as he needs to be checked into a long term treatment center-and or jail too, somewhere harsh, to teach him a stern lesson because at his age, if he doesn't stop his antics, he will end up killing himself and maybe others.. and he should represent himself s a role model for his young fans !!

He was never beaten enough "GROWING" up.
Someone should beat the tar out of him and send him to his room to sit in a corner with his nose in circle drawn on the wall.
