How on earth do I explain why I don't want therapy?

Hi everyone,
I have a big problem with a close friend getting angry with me because I won't try depth psychotherapy. I have actually tried it before and found that any words are said just get caught up in my circular thoughts and never touch me, and therapy just turns me more in on myself and makes my chronic self-observation even worse. The best theraputic help I've had was cognitive-behavioural and was concentrated on focusing outside myself. I've tried to explain but I can't get this across to him.If anyone understands what I'm saying have you got any ideas what to say?

Why do you have to justify yourself to your friend?
Well simply say "I tried it before. Didn't work".

:idea: :wink:
