Personal profile

Academic Biography

Dr Alan Bowman is an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist. Alan completed his undergraduate degree at Durham University (St. Cuthbert’s Society) in 2009, and further developed his academic interests with a masters degree in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2010, also at Durham University.

He works part-time in the NHS within a pain management service, and also has experience of working in specialist palliative care services. His therapeutic interests include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Existential Psychotherapy.

Alan was appointed Academic Tutor for the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in September 2016. He is involved in the delivery of the research strand of the course and as well as providing teaching on statistics, research methods, and critical thinking, supervises a number of doctoral theses.

Throughout his clinical and academic roles, Alan has emphasised the reciprocal nature of clinical science and clinical practice; one cannot exist without the other. He believes that psychological theory and evidence has an important practical role to play in a modern NHS; through developing and refining clinical work, informing service design, and supporting staff.
