Is NLP a type of hypnosis?
NLP isn’t a type of hypnosis, however NLP uses some of the approaches of hypnosis and meditation. NLP was originally modeled from hypnotist Milton Erickson, together with others who were very good at helping people change.
There are also similarities between NLP, hypnosis and meditation, they all explore different (and useful) mental and physical states. Meditation is more focused on accepting ‘what is’, whereas NLP and hypnosis are more focused on moving towards an outcome or direction. NLP can be done more ‘conversationally’ than traditional hypnosis (although there is a branch of hypnosis called conversational hypnosis). All have their uses.
