Your client will be very appreciative when you give him the opportunity to 'Desahogarse' as part of therapy sessions. If a doubtful new client asks, "¿Para qué es esta terapia? The therapist can reply, "Una parte de la terapia es desahogarse." Then the client will understand what is expected. That the therapist wants him to open up and just start talking about what's going on, and how he may have tried to cope or fix so far.
Hispanic clients may not automatically understand that you want them just to open up and start talking. Clients may be expecting a certain procedure or questions or other methods. So when you let them know, "La terapia es para desahogarse" they will understand more about how the therapeutic process works, and will engage more confidently.
