I can laugh about it now, but it was hard at the time. I don't look at him at all during our sessions. I rarely even have him in my periphial vision. It was a rare moment when I was actually talking about something for a while and all of a sudden there was a huge TWITCH from his side of the room. And I'm not talking just a little sleepy twitch. He did a full body twitch that almost landed him on the floor.

It surprised me so much that I actually looked over at him and he had that "where am I, was I just asleep?" look on his face. He realised that he surprised me and apologised for that (ie the surprising, not the sleeping). He just said that he slipped off his chair.

The really funny thing is that we had been talking about re-framing things just prior to that. So his "slipped off the chair" stood out as a re-frame from a mile away.

I gave him a real earful (eyeful?) in my next writeup about it and he did admit to falling asleep, but tried to pass it off as a sugar low. Sugar low my a$$.
