Client falls asleep

Just wondering how to avoid the client falling asleep. I must have a pretty soothing voice😁 And if they do, how to manage that.

Oh I see this has been discussed earlier. It is hard to find the balance sometimes. My 10yr old client was quite restless so perhaps I tried too hard to deepen her. Within the next moment she was asleep.

I find that using their name tends to get their attention and brings them up a bit. If you keep an eye on your client closely, you might notice that her head tilts to one side, or her jaw slackens before she falls asleep. You can use these cues to judge when to intervene.

I was always taught that it was okay if a client falls asleep and the subconscious mind stills picks up on what you are saying?

yes i believe that too but if they are really deep dont be afraid to raise your voice and perhaps get them to acknowledge you by nodding. As you gain more experience you will find it easier. In extreme cases i use a dog clicker lol.
