You don't have to tell, of course, but why did you enter therapy? And, do you know the orientation of your therapist? Some CBT practitioners don't really "do" emotional holding.

You said you are just telling the bad stuff directly, no emotion. I think as you build trust, both in your therapist and in yourself, you will go back and *feel* the bad stuff, and these powerful emotions lend themselves to needing to be held. Again, if the kind of therapy you are doing is more problem solving or seems to be about not thinking bad thoughts, things may be different for you.

Therapy is full of surprises. My biggest problem when I started was getting whammied when I left with the emotions, I couldn't access them during sessions. Now my biggest problem seems to be closing up these feelings and emotions so I can leave. I need a big therapy band-aid for between times.
