Bob Burns

Creator of The Swan®


Bob Burns hypnotized his first person in the early 70’s by pretending to be a hypnotist whilst touring as a musician with an R & B band. This scared the hell out of him and had a lot to do with him going on to university where he studied psychology, sociology and philosophy at honours degree level. Since then he has gone on to do stage hypnosis, street, impromptu and also uses it in the world of magic and mentalism where he has worked in the corporate world for many years. He does many hypnosis workshops throughout the year, mainly throughout Europe whilst also working as a Clinical Hypnotist where he also mentors and teaches his methods live in his therapy rooms in Montrose, Scotland (the home of James Esdaile). Bob is considered to be the only clinical hypnotist who offers this specialised training in Europe. In hypnotherapy he had for many years always worked with what he was always happy to call: ‘standard operational procedures.’
