Oh dear, how terrible, that these people are boring to the therapist. Obviously the main purpose one seeks therapy is to entertain and amuse your therapist. Amazing how psychologists think. Being able to put your emotional state into words is not therapeutic. Being aware of your emotional state is obviously not the same as giving in to it, which is where the therapeutic benefit lies. Expressing your emotions might be completely non verbal. It might be something you do in private. Crying and sobbing like a baby, and howling your frustrations to the moon is of more benefit than finding words to describe them for the benefit of others. People who can verbalize their feeling tend to be less repressed than people who can't, and that is all. But as usual, you get it all wrong and see verbalization as the important part.
