The European Certificate of Hypnosis (ECH) was conceived by the ESH BOD following the decision to withdraw from the European Psychotherapy Association (EAP), thereby giving up our right to regulate certification in hypnosis in Europe. We decided to create our own certification, reflecting competence in all areas of Hypnosis (Medical, Dental, Psychological).
