Hypnosis, The Swan and more…with Bob Burns

A Two Day Workshop with Bob Burns

Saturday 28th March and Sunday 29th March 2020 9:30 – 15:30, Birmingham, UK.

I am extremely proud to be welcoming Bob Burns – hypnotherapist and creator of the Swan Protocol, back to Birmingham for a 2 day workshop.

Bob’s work is inspirational, experimental and practical – all at the same time – a feat not many people manage. In this packed two days Bob will share content covering hypnosis, the Swan protocol and some other areas covering the exploration of consciousness that he has not shared very often until recently.

In this content packed workshop you will learn:

  • The perfect consultation – Bob’s template for each session which he calls the Wall. You will possess the full and complete knowledge of its power, AND be shown how to deliver it in a full consultation
  • The Swan – Bob has developed his unique and effective Swan protocol which is
    used by therapists across the globe. This is a way of making instant contact with the subconscious in a fully wakened state without hypnosis, as well as being a perfect complement to any hypnosis session. This is an effective technique for change with clients as well as for yourself.

Plus Bob will share:

  • Bob’s formula for handling any given challenge by any member of the public in either the therapy room, street or impromptu situation.
  • A fail-safe way of demonstrating hypnosis in a group setting.
  • Bob’s Smoking Cessation Protocol which has proven to be hugely successful.
  • Doctors referrals. The exact approach and wording that Bob uses to get doctors referrals.
  • Bobs’ colour protocol which he uses when working with sports people and those wanting to improve performance.
  • Pendulum Power. Bob will reveal the real fascinating facts of ‘Chevreul’s Pendulum’ and reveal why different parts (real or imagined) within the subconscious can agree but also argue with each other!
  • Mentalism in Hypnosis – Bob will share some tools and techniques which cross over from mentalism to hypnosis and can be used in the therapy room.
  • Lucid dreaming. Bob will share how he uses Lucid Dreaming techniques and teaches how you can too and why you would want to.
  • The most important therapy questions answered.

In addition, after the main workshop has ended Bob is running a session on how he uses spiritual healing. NB This element is optional for people to attend. This is not part of the main workshop and is a free event. However, anyone attending the Hypnosis and Swan workshop is welcome to attend. It will run from 3:30 to 5:30 on Sunday 29th March.

Find out more about what will be covered at the workshop:

The Perfect Consultation
The door opens and a stranger walks in…. to be met by another stranger. One is a nervous client, the other a therapist, who can ‘go with the flow’, but that is only because they own and are highly trained in: a process. A magical template which takes them from station to station in an incredible journey whereby the client now possesses no more nerves. Rather in their place is now the knowledge that this is indeed the therapist. This is the one who is about to help them. And not just because this therapist knows exactly what to do and say, but also how to deliver these skills in this… ‘The Perfect Consultation’

And in order to possess The Perfect Consultation one has to know how to break down ‘The Wall’

The Wall
is a total and complete description of the consultation Bob Burns has built up in his therapy room in over 40 years. It has been said by many full time therapists around the world that if a new student only learned:

The Bob Burns Wall Template … they could literally walk into a therapy room and begin healing patients (something Bob does NOT advocate!). However, it is taught in such a way by Bob Burns himself that all students will possess the full and complete knowledge of its power, AND be shown how to deliver it in a full consultation. The student will leave with every single word (hard copy) Bob uses and his entire repertoire exactly the way he presents it.

The Swan
A full demonstration will take place of The Swan Process. Bob will reveal how to make instant contact with the subconscious in a full wakened state without any form of hypnosis. He will also revea why The Swan is NOT an Ideo-Motor Response.

Bob will explain and demonstrate every single word, movement and hesitation (and why) of how The Swan should be presented. Students will leave with the hard copy of every ‘little difference that makes the big difference’ with regard to the presentation of the Swan. And yes, this will be workshopped by the students during the 2 days, giving them the knowledge and confidence to deliver this fascinating process for the rest of their lives.

Five Point Rebuttal Formula
Designed by Bob Burns in the 80’s this is a full formula whereby the therapist can handle any given challenge by any member of the public in either the therapy room, street or
impromptu. This ensures the hypnotist will never fear any challenge from any person with regard to their hypnotic skills. Bob will demonstrate this in full so that you will be able to use it thereafter.

Group Presentations
Here the student will be shown how to story-tell, how to test the audience for both imagination and response tests. Students will also be shown how to demonstrate hypnosis (or the power of suggestion) where there can be NO failure. And of course Bob’s now world famous teaching of ‘how to present a simple business card’ in a way the recipient will never forget you!

Smoking Cessation
Bob has never had a desire to charge high monies for his therapy, and yet his fees for Smoking Cessation are among the highest in the UK. This is for a very important reason, which will of course be fully explained. He believes his record in Smoking Cessation can sit with any other therapist anywhere in the world. A full demonstration of The Bob Burns Smoking Cessation protocol will be provided as will a full ‘evidence based’ breakdown of the facts and treatment behind cigarette smoking over the last 20 years.

Doctors Referrals
Bob will explain the method he uses to make contacts with doctors and how to gain referrals (copies of letters will be included).

Colour Protocol
Bob works with some of the finest marksmen, snooker players and golfers in the world (including World Champion and ‘The Open’ winners). Here he will show his complete consultation on exactly what he does with each one.

Pendulum Power
Bob will reveal the real fascinating facts of ‘Chevreul’s Pendulum’, in ways that Cheveul himself probably never considered possible! In this exercise Bob reveals WHY different parts (real or imagined) within the subconscious can agree but also argue with each other! But in the hands of a therapist who understands…. mini miracles can seem possible! This WILL make you giggle! And maybe squirm just a little….

Mentalism in Hypnosis
As a fulltime professional stage hypnotist and mentalist/magician over many years Bob will be revealing several of the very best things that crossover from mentalism to hypnosis, including work he uses in his actual therapy rooms. At the end of this section the students will have that ability and the knowledge in how to present these. This is something you WILL use, again and again and again!

Lucid Dreaming
You spend a third of your lives asleep. And it is in this state where some of your finest work can be done. Bob has been a Lucid Dreamer for most of his life and in this worksh

The most Important Therapy Questions Answered

Bob will also honestly answer what he considers to be 6 of the most important questions any therapist could ask, and needs to know!:

  1. Do I NEED to talk to the Subconscious
  2. If I fix them will they stay fixed
  3. Do they need to be in hypnosis for me to help them
  4. Do scripts work (one of the biggest arguments in hypnotherapy)
  5. Do I need to do phenomena in the therapy room
  6. Is it true that a somnambulists (someone who enters hypnosis easily) gets fixed better than a non-somnambulist

About Bob Burns

Bob Burns hypnotised his first person in the early 70’s whilst merely pretending to be a hypnotist (something that scared the hell out of him!).

Since then he has done stage hypnosis, street, impromptu and also uses hypnosis 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).

Bob mentors many therapists from around the world, but he is 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 known therapist who actually brings the student into his home and 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 debate on the question: ‘ What exactly is The Swan and is it true that it can venture into certain areas where hypnosis cannot?’

One thing is for certain, The Swan Protocol is indeed one of the finest procedures ever
constructed in the hypnosis world.

And here YOU get the chance to train with one of the finest trainers ever in the world of hypnosis!!!

As said, Bob is also a much sought after professional mentalist and uses hypnosis in stage, impromptu and in his close-up work of magic and mentalism.

He simply loves using and blending mentalism with clinical hypnosis and he actually teaches these fantastic skills to his students in many of his clinical hypnosis workshops.

Who should attend?

The workshop will mainly be for those with some knowledge and experience of hypnotherapy who are looking for that extra something. It might be how to build a certain confidence within yourself or how to present perfectly to the client in the therapy room in such a way which highly increases your success rate. It may be that you want additional insights and approaches to complement what you already do or to add more into what you
do. It may be that you have heard so much about Bob and are curious to find out first hand what he does. It might be that you want to find out how to work with the Swan. Whichever – this is the perfect opportunity for you. Expect an informative, fun and inspiring workshop!

Where will the training be held?

The training will be held at the IBIS Birmingham New Street Station in a modern and light training room. The venue is located in the centre of Birmingham making it exceptionally easy to reach. Being in the heart of England, Birmingham benefits from excellent transport routes and is easily accessible from within the UK. The main railway station, Birmingham New Street is just three minutes walk from the hotel and Birmingham International Airport is just one stop on the train making this an excellent location for both UK residents and international attendees.
