European Hypnosis - The State we are in
As I take on the role of President of ESH this is a view on where we are, and some thoughts on where we might wish to go.
My title plays on the multiplicity of meanings that the word ‘state’ has in English, a multiplicity that reflects in many ways the diversity of the usage and perception of hypnosis that operates throughout Europe. And it is this wide diaspora that I feel is both our strength and our challenge.
Within this lecture I will reflect on our past, informed by my experience of chairing the Committee for Educational programmes in Europe for the last six years, and I will then present a three-year manifesto for the future. A future that will I hope engage and enthuse all of our fourteen thousand member clinicians, some of whom I suspect are not even aware of their membership of this our precious community.
