This paper tries to answer two questions. The first question concerns the possible existence of a body-memory that precedes and prepares the memories elaborated by the central nervous system. The second question concerns the ways that allow body memories to be recovered. Evidence proceeds from the body to verbal representation. In all situations, normal or traumatic, images are a sort of bridge connecting body-memories with mind-memories. Finally, this paper will describe a new technique of consulting called Imaginative psychological consulting that uses images during the interview.
Keywords: Memory, image, text, imaginative psychological counselling, remembering, direct age regression.
