Query:   In a nutshell, I'm working on some research in which I'm extending a weak version of Sapir-Whorf, specifically Slobin's 'thinking for speaking' to the counseling domain. The is an assumption in many types of counseling that if the language of the client is changed, his thoughts (about himself, others, the world) will change as well.

Because of the sensitive and ethical nature of any counseling relationship I don't know that I will be easily able to collect transcripts from sessions (even if any sensitive information is redacted). I want to submit transcripts of various forms of corpus analysis and was wondering if anyone knew of any corpora that contained counseling or therapy sessions.

(I've looked and looked (e.g., COCA, BNC, etc.) and gone so far to email Mark Davies, but to no avail.)
