Balotelli is struggling with life off the pitch at AC Milan this season.
Oriali said: "In the last week he was every day on the front pages of the newspapers and this would not be to his advantage. He should try to solve his problems, to ensure the talk is as little as possible.
"He first needs to focus more on his football life and then his private life.
"A psychologist for him? At Inter, we had a psychologist, Bruna Rossi, who was very helpful for those who had problems not related to football."
