Dr Alpana Bose by email

I graduated with a medical degree and an intercalated BSc in Immunology from the Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ Medical and Dental Schools in 2000. Since then I have gained experience in a wide range of specialties. I became a member of the Royal College of Physicians in 2003 and the Royal College of Psychiatrists in 2018. A keen interest in the interaction between mental well being and physical health led me to study hypnotherapy. I completed a Medical Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis at the London College of Clinical Hypnosis in 2014. Soon after obtaining my diploma I established a voluntary hypnotherapy clinic for the management of chronic pain in collaboration with the Pain Team at Great Western Hospital. I have also offered hypnotherapy sessions for members of staff for healthy eating and well being. Inspired by the transformational and empowering results that I have observed, both professionally and personally, I am passionate about promoting the use of hypnotherapy within conventional healthcare. In addition to my clinical work, I have taken an active role in research and teaching. I am on the teaching faculty at The London School of Communication and Clinical Hypnosis and have been the Medical Director for the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis since 2015.


My private clinic is based in Swindon at The Counselling and Psychotherapy Centre.
