The British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis (BSCAH) and The European Society of Hypnosis (ESH) would like to welcome you to Manchester for our sociable and thought-provoking ESH 2017 Congress. We have a great venue, some very good speakers and an opportunity for all our friends in Europe to come and either present or attend many interesting workshops and discussions, to share approaches and learn from each other. We will have a wide variety of poster presentations and an exhibition space, as well as a breakout room for those who need to relax for a while.
