How to Stop Facial Spasms


How to Stop Facial Spasms 

An Enquiry to Birmingham Hypnotherapist

Hi Debbie,

 I have had this problem since I was a teenager and Im now 30. Whenever I talk to someone, while Im listening to what they are saying, I get severe facial spasms.

My cheeks and side of my mouth keep twitching involuntarily. This has destroyed my life, I used to be a happy person, being social but ever since this started I am afraid to interact with anyone. I am sick of it and to be honest I dont think I want to live my life like this.

I know nothing about hypnosis but I just read that it might help with this, is it true? Thank you for your time.

Yes I can help you, I often get asked ‘Can hypnosis show me how to stop facial spasms or tics?

My answer is firstly check with your GP to see if there are any treatable causes for this then I answer;

I couldn’t say that we would be able to eliminate the facial spasm or facial tic completely, but I know we will be able to reduce the symptoms and stop it happening so often.

We can also reduce the anxiety so that   when it does go into spasm you are not  so affected or upset by it.

Your spasms have habituated

The facial spasms or tics can become a habit and your brain is expecting it to occur. You think ‘’I hope it doesn’t happen when I meet so and so…  (before an event) Your mind then sees a movie of your face going into spasm and you dread going or find a way to avoid going out completely.
As it now makes you feel bad in advance and this negative spiral reduces your confidence and self esteem and takes any joy out of life.

Hypnosis and NLP can help with spasms

Hypnosis and NLP together will be much more powerful to help reducing the symptoms of facial spasms and tics.
Hypnosis on its own may help or not depending on the experience of the hypnotherapist. It should definitely help with the stress part of the problem.
The NLP  ( I’m a Master Practitioner and Trainer as well as a Hypnotherapist)  is a system of being able to re- programme your mind for solutions and adjusting thinking patterns to be more resourceful. 
it can take the ‘sting’ out of a negative emotion/feeling so that you feel empowered again and care much less if your face does spasm.
That along with everything else we do will stop it happening all the time and allow it to fade out as you move on with your life.

Previous clients with facial spasms/ tics 

This is what has happened with many other clients of mine.
The spasms or facial tics reduce or go completely overtime only coming back in a much lesser degree when they are stressed about something, which becomes a useful message for them to think ‘what do I need to do to deal with this situation” and as they do that if goes away again.
Where you are at the moment is constantly thinking about ‘your problem’  and facial spasms or tics and your brain cannot process negation and by that I mean, try not to think of the colour blue. 

Focusing on what you want

Blue appears there in your mind. This is what you have been doing with the facial spasms. 
ie I hope my face doesn’t go into spasms when i….
And your brain sees what you are focusing on
NLP can stop that and hypnosis can help re-build a better prediction for the future. A bit like when I’ve worked with athletes we focus on the internal movie of them winning with no room for the movie of what they don’t want.
What I do is much more specific, detailed and more powerful than Ive explained here but Ive tried to put it in a way that will make sense to you.
