emotional cripple

Hi,

no context I'm afraid, just a stock phrase I'm wondering if there is a French equivalent for:

An emotional cripple, someone who is unable to have or show their feelings and so finds it difficult to form relationships with people

Nothing I can think of sounds right:
un estropié émotionnel
quelqu'un estropié émotionnellement

Or is there no real equivalent?

thanks for any help.
