The Difference Between NLP And Hypnosis

Jul 17, 2008
NLP or Neuro-linguistic Programming involves the conditioning of the sub conscious mind in the waking state. The practice revolves around the use of powerful vocal conditioning. The person is spoken to within a setting that both empowers and addresses the issue at hand. NLP is successfully used to address physical and mental health issues, phobias and other causes for stress. The NLP sessions are designed around reinforcing positive thought processes that reach out and increase the quality of life even beyond the sessions. In the case of hypnosis, the subject or subjects are addressed within an induced trance like state. The issues are taken up one by one and address one particular problem only, not necessarily affecting other areas of life. There is a distinct difference between NLP and hypnosis.

While NLP is the study and conditioning of a subjective experience, hypnosis addresses the response to stimuli within an induced state of mind. While NLP can be applied to other areas of life, the same does not apply to hypnosis. However, both address our own experience and that of others. Hypnosis Language Patterns and that of NLP are both influencing tools that examine how people respond to conditioning via language. When an NLP practitioner addresses a session, he or she influences the listener/listeners both, consciously and unconsciously. While the subliminal influence is the 'hypnosis' part of the experience, the conscious influence is the result of NLP. NLP or Neuro-linguistic Programming helps you to become aware of how the programming affects you unconsciously via communication that you are exposed to within the setting designed.

In the case of hypnosis this awareness is missing and in a way, you are potentially at the risk of intentional and unintentional hypnotic communication. NLP makes you aware of how changed behavior patterns affect others in the peripheral. Intentionally or unintentionally, people around us are influenced at the emotional level and this can be used to generate better community living and quality of life. NLP is not confining. The changed behavior influences other areas of your life, whereas in the case of hypnosis, the practitioner deals with one issue at a time and there is limited scope for the outcome to touch other areas. The NLP approach also enables you to witness different responses from the people in the peripheral that comes with a change in you. In the case of hypnosis, the change is limited to you and you apply and benefit from the changed attitude.

For example, if a person is diabetic and considers NLP as an alternate treatment along with medication, he or she also allows empowerment within the immediate society by spreading awareness towards the precautionary measures that need to be considered. In addition, the person also exercises more self-control and takes on a healthy diet and exercise regime with the newfound awareness and positive-ness, thus becoming an example for others. However, if the person chooses hypnosis as an alternative therapy, the choice of food and exercise is for personal gain and something that comes out of the conditioning within the trance like state. The conditioning is only as far as the diabetes goes. NLP and hypnosis are both alternatives people around the world are considering complimenting medication.
