Delegates were a mix of those interested in psychic phenomena, those who claim to be psychic and those, like me, who conduct scientific research in the field.
Tom Prosser is a Ph.D. candidate in Health Psychology. He received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Canterbury Christ Church University. He is now going into his fifth year of a part-time Ph.D. and is a University Instructor within the psychology department.
