These subjective experiences have been found to be comprised of different combinations of enactive, imagistic, and lexical representations. Statistical analyses carried out in diverse samples have consistently indicated that patients can be grouped and compared with respect to how their representational configurations blend visual images of the therapist sitting in his/her office, auditory images of the tonal qualities of his/her voice, thoughts about the words that were spoken or heard, and somato-sensory bodily experiences.
