NLP vs. Hypnosis

What is the difference between NLP and Hypnosis?

Hypnosis has roots that stretch as far back as ancient history. As far back as we go, we will find some form of hypnosis used in healing. The term Hypnosis was coined in 1842 by James Braid. Prior to Braid, it was widely known as Mesmerism. 

NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)  was founded in the 1970's by John Grinder and Richard Bandler. The foundations of NLP stem from behavioural psychology, Linguistics, Neuroscience and Hypnosis.

Hypnosis uses a formal induction to induce a trance state. In this state the hypnotherapist works directly with the clients unconscious mind to produce change. 

NLP does not use a formal trance induction and much of the work is done conversationally often involving both the conscious and unconscious mind. 

The techniques of NLP can be used inside of Hypnosis. 

Having a deep understanding of both NLP and Hypnosis allows for greater flexibility in the practitioner to assist their client. This is why we teach both in our Practitioner and Master Practitioner trainings.
