I have been telling him- it's an initially terrifying experience- you leave thinking that you can't believe what you just said! But he keeps pointing out that a vital part of therapy is allowing him to know what all my wishes and desires are. Somehow, it becomes something very profound and meaningful to do. It has nothing to do with actually having anything happen. In fact, the main point seems for me to know myself better, and trust him more with all parts of me. I have never regretted saying even the most intimate, private things to him- I think it's the things one doesn't know about, or can't say, which seem to cause those painful feelings of loneliness and shame. You could try it slowly, and see whether you have the same good experience that I've had. I think this is the area where the therapists really show their skill!
