I don't have guidance or advice on everything you have written, but I will say two things:

1. He is treating you, the person, not you the student. I understand your interest in the subject. But he is trying to help you with feelings and other issues that are not logical or spelled out in any textbook. I would think that would be what you want. Also, there are so many different interpretations as it relates to analytic theory. Having a discussion in those terms could take far longer than you may think and take away from the time you have to deal with your pain (I know you already feel short on time.)

2. As for your readings, think about this: some of the people that are the worst at managing their money are those who work in the financial sector. And there are plenty of stories of residents or medical students who think they have every disease they study. I don't know if that is true for psychotherapy. But to the degree you can, I would try to separate what you learn in the classroom from what you are trying to learn in therapy.
