What’s the difference between hypnosis or guided imagery and brain washing?

Though training on brain washing protocols are not as readily accessible as guided imagery and hypnotherapy protocols, what I understand about “brain washing” is that it requires extreme deprivation in order to “break the will” so that one will readily comply with orders. Some religious and military groups have been reported to have used these methods. Hypnotherapy and guided imagery are concerned with honoring the individual and facilitating a sense of individual mastery through a sense of connection to mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual resources.
