Dr Olivia Doughty Clinical Psychologist Milton Keynes

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist in Milton Keynes with extensive experience working within the NHS/ social care with adults, young people and their families. I offer therapy and assessments. I am based in Woburn Sands, near Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire.

I pride myself on providing a warm, non judgemental, empathic and professional therapeutic space.

As a British Psychological Society (BPS) Clinical Psychologist, I am trained to provide comprehensive assessments to help individuals and families understand more about any difficulties they may be experiencing. The outcome of this is a clinical formulation which is tailored to each person and helps inform therapy.

I am trained in a range of evidence based therapeutic approaches (including CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), attachment therapy, DBT (Dialetical Behaviour Therapy), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), systemic family therapy, mindfulness, narrative therapy and compassion focused therapy (CFT)). I can offer both short term and longer term therapy for adults, young people and children.

I work with individuals and families who may be experiencing difficulties that include:

  • Anxiety, Panic and worry

  • Depression and low mood

  • Behavioural difficulties in children

  • Anger and aggressive behaviour

  • Attachment difficulties

  • Eating Disorders

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Trauma (including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

  • Phobias

  • Stress related to work and study

  • Low self esteem

  • Weight management

  • Insomnia

  • Difficulties relating to physical illness (including pain, fatigue, adjustment to diagnoses, coping)

  • Difficulties with relationships

  • Bereavement and loss

I also provide Expert Witness Assessments for court, for example, with civil or family cases.

I specialise in working with children and families and have significant experience working with looked after children (who have been fostered and adopted).

I am registered with most Health Insurance Providers, such as BUPA, AXA PPP, AVIVA, Vitality Life and WPA.
