David Dove, Psychotherapist, Counsellor, Banbury & Bicester

Updated on November 7, 2014

David Dove, Psychotherapist, Counsellor, Banbury & Bicester area

Hello, my name is David Dove. I am a Psychotherapist and counsellor registered with the UKCP and I run The Paloma Centre., a personal growth and therapy centre which provides an holistic approach to emotional healing, mental health and personal development.

As making contact with someone like myself for the first time can be quite a big step for anyone (I often think that it is actually the hardest part of therapy) I thought that it would be useful to tell you something about myself and The Paloma Centre so that you can have a better idea of who I am and what we do.

We have been practising psychotherapy and counselling in the Banbury area for over thirteen years now and we use aspects of psychotherapy and counselling along with hypnotic, EFT and NLP techniques where appropriate (see our website for explanations of the different therapies).

We do not adhere to any rigid single school of psychotherapeutic thought but draw from an eclectic base of learning (and life) to provide individual programmes of therapy unique to each client. Most clients are able to resolve their concerns within a very few sessions but some do continue with a programme of personal growth and development for extended periods of time, sometimes even years. Our own aim is to be as effective for you as possible, as soon as possible, consistent with the outcomes being harmonious with your authentic self. We do not ask for any commitment to any number of sessions but take it quite simply one session at a time at your own discretion.

Below you will find more information about us or you can go to our website at for practical information about the different therapies and where we are etc. or simply call us on 01295 812138.

      Sounds like you are doing a good job, I used to pass through Banbury several times a year, but now less often, especially with the by-pass. I have a lot of family up in the Rugby area.
