Default Re: Sleeping with the Client

Well, of course, the best trick is to get a good night's sleep as much as possible. If you find yourself regularly nodding off with clients throughout the day, that's probably as much a sign of not receiving enough sleep as anything else.

I never learned any tricks from others in this regard. When I did therapy, I would just try and ensure I was ready for the next 50 minutes, whether that included getting a cup of coffee, going outside for a brisk walk, or whatever. If time allowed, a mid-day power nap also helped from time to time.
