They may be revealed obliquely, through verbal or nonverbal codes. For instance, a client may be talking about his job, giving a lot of factual information quickly, in a rather anxious tone of voice. The therapist may ‘sense’ that the client is actually rather worried, and not sure what to do next. The process of empathy is the same as for primary, only in this case, because the feeling is not clearly displayed by our client, and, more important, he may be unaware of the feeling himself, then care is needed in communicating what we think we understand about his world.
