Bob Burns was a musician in an R&B band when he hypnotised his first person in the early 70’s whilst merely pretending to be a hypnotist.

Since then he has performed stage, street and impromptu hypnosis and also uses it in the world of magic and mentalism where he works mainly in the corporate sector.

He is also a working clinical hypnotist, seeing clients in his therapy rooms in Montrose, Scotland (the home of James Esdaile). He is also a mentor with a difference. For rather than teach his students (who are experienced therapists only) in the classroom, he is believed to be the only therapist in the world who actually brings the student into his therapy rooms for a few days in order to watch him work with live clients.

This much sought after radically distinctive personal one-on-one training and mentoring is by appointment only. In hypnotherapy he had for many years always worked highly successfully with what he happily called ‘standard operational procedures’: ………… then along came a Swan’. Bob’s ‘Swan Protocol’ is now actively used by therapists and healers in more than 85 countries around the world provoking much interest in the areas of how

The Swan can delve into certain areas in therapy where hypnosis cannot, prompting top world trainers such as Anthony Jacquin to comment: “The Swan actually eats hypnosis for breakfast!” One thing is for certain, The Swan Protocol is indeed one of the finest procedures ever constructed in the therapeutic world.

Bob also runs many workshops around the world where he teaches his own brand of hypnosis, specialising in mainly his very own protocols. But he makes it clear that first and foremost he is a fulltime clinical hypnotist (well, for 40 weeks of the year at least )
