> I still went home after a day of being oestrasized and bullied at school and still could lose myself in films, singing and reading books.
> I recently started seeing a therapist who was recommended me and he seemed to think that my problems were related to complex childhood trauma and emotions that had never been processed properly.

Based on the first paragraph above, I can see why your therapist might come to this conclusion (or hypothesis). It sounds like you did not, at the time, particularly react to the adverse experiences you went through.

> For my part it was a long shot and I duly sat there week after week rehashing the past but it really didn't seem to do me any good. If anything it seemed a bit self absorbed to keep harping on about problems in the past. I'm not quite sure how it was supposed to help.

I think you need to "feel" it, not just talk about it. When approached from the "right angle", talking can lead to feeling; eg. while talking you may suddenly burst into tears, and so be able "process" it.
