Comparing NLP and Hypnosis

by Janis Ericson, Hypnosis and NLP Trainer

One of the most prevalent questions I am asked is, "What is the difference between NLP and Hypnosis?"  Here is a comprehensive answer.

NLP is the study of successful people. NLP modelers study what successful people think, say, value, believe, and do. Practitioners of NLP use this information as a map to guide processes that assist clients in making positive changes in their own minds and bodies. It is an extremely effective methodology for personal growth and development.

Hypnosis, however, is a skill a practitioner of NLP requires in order to facilitate effective and lasting change in their clients. The purpose of hypnosis is to access and use the unconscious mind to change beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors to match the map generated with NLP skills. During hypnosis, clients enter a relaxed dream-like state of consciousness that allows for new and healthy patterns to be implanted.

NLP Practitioners generally employ Ericksonian hypnosis, which differs from traditional hypnosis in the way suggestions are made in the client's unconscious mind. Ericksonian hypnotists use subtle, indirect suggestions that are more powerful than direct suggestions and are easily accessed during NLP processes.

In summary, NLP and Hypnosis are separate fields of study, requiring different skills and techniques, but they are often combined together to produce permanent and lasting changes.

Energy healing

Energy psychology and energy medicine can be lumped together under the complementary and alternative health care category that is also known as energy healing.

Although this seems to be a rather new medical and psychological technique, in many ways it's based upon or influenced by ancient Eastern traditions involving chakras and energy meridians. There are several specific techniques that come under the heading of energy healing. This includes Therapeutic Touch,...

All about weight loss

Weight loss is probably one of the most difficult challenges faced by way too many people around the world. Being obese or over weight as defined by an excessive Body Mass Index (BMI) is a symptom of excessive calorie intake versus inadequate motivation. Unlike bad habits such as smoking and nail biting, eating is something that a person cannot live without. They cannot “kick the habit” and get thin. So, the trick is finding the right balance between eating and calorie burning. On the other hand, the quality of a person’s nutrition is also very important. It is not all about calorie...

The Difference that Self-Confidence Brings

I want to start out by saying that it is okay for you to read this article. I know that you will get something out of it and that you are capable of reading it in its entirety. Of course, most people already know this. Clearly they don’t need my permission. However, there are others who seem to always doubt that they have the capability – and the right – to face life’s obstacles no matter how small and insignificant. Having a recurring feeling of inadequacy or lack of confidence is not good for your health, happiness, or future self-actualization. In order to understand this, realize that...
