DR OLIVIA DOUGHTY, CHARTERED 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.
I work with individuals and families who may be experiencing difficulties that include:
Anxiety, Panic and worry
Depression and low mood
Behavioral difficulties in children
Anger and aggressive behavior
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Trauma (including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
Stress related to work and study
Low self esteem
Difficulties with relationships
Bereavement and loss
Neuropsychology Assessment Center
Difficulties relating to physical illness (including pain, fatigue, adjustment to diagnoses, coping)
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.
