Default depth of processing

I find that clearing almost always happens more quickly when what the client focuses on during processing is somatic/emotional content as opposed to more cognitive content. I guess the first part of my question is: do others find this to be true?
The second part of my question is, if this is true, how to guide a client into more somatic, less cerebral realms of attention and still respect the integrity of his/her process.
Some clients, particularly the ones who have had a lot of trauma, seem to really want to just loop at a really cognitive level...and the SUDS rarely changes when they do this.
