VSEPR theory states that the electron pairs in the valence shell of an atom arrange themselves in such a way that repulsions among them are minimized and this arrangement of the electron pairs determines the shape of a particular molecule. Hybridization is the intermixing of a particular number of atomic orbitals to form equal number of new orbitals which have same shape and energy. Both are used to determine the shape of a molecule and that they are independent of each other.
