Some people have a specific difficulty in finding words to describe or talk about emotional topics, and this might be encouraged to develop by childhood experiences of abuse and lack of nurturing. And sometimes techniques one has to learn as survival tools when younger, are much less functional as one grows older, as they become dysfunctional, protecting you against things you may no longer need to protect against, and which now interfere with things you may actally want or need to approach.
Hypnotherapy would of course be useless in such a complex situation, and indeed I have yet to find ANY situation in which "hypnotherapy" as such and on its own, is a worthwhile and useful therapy for anything at all. Some forms of psychotherapy might help, such as CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) which is currently the method with the ebst evidence of usefulness in a wide range of situations, and perhaps some related but more depth-oriented methods. Wishy washy chat with no specific method or aims wouldn't help, of course.
To have succeeded as far as you already have, despite the disadvantages you faced, takes strengths that should enable you, with the right sort of help, to learn to get beyond yhe limitations set when you were younger, and to find more enjoyable ways of relating to others and to life itself.
