Talk to a computer program.

ELIZA is a famous computer program from 1966 by Joseph Weizenbaum, which parodied a Rogerian therapist. It works largely by rephrasing patient's statements as questions and posing them to the patient. Thus, for example, the response to "My head hurts" might be "Why do you say your head hurts?" The response to "My mother hates me" might be "Who else in your family hates you?"
