About me and my therapy practice
My name is Suzanne McNaughton (founder of integration counselling & psychotherapy). I am a psychological Therapist, living in East Lothian, Scotland
I base my work on what best suits your needs, using evidence based practice and various theoretical models: Cognitive Behavioural, compassion focussed, Person Centred, Solution focussed, dialectical behaviour therapy, transactional analysis-integrating these modalities into practice.
A key advantage of integrative therapy is its flexibility and focus on the whole of an individual. The integration of different approaches means therapy can be tailored to meet a variety of needs and concerns, making it a more flexible and inclusive approach to treatment than more traditional, singular forms of psychotherapy.
Having worked in the mental health and wellbeing field across various settings, for many years and currently with NHS. This ensures a wide breadth of knowledge, skills and experience. Adherence to several ethical frameworks (BACP, BABCP, BPS) frequent clinical supervision which allows me to provide the best possible practice and safeguard your welfare.
I have worked with individuals with many psychological presentations over the years, which vary in their complexities.
I work daily with:
Various forms of anxiety: health, social, GAD, panic, OCD, and phobias.
Emotional disorders: depression, bipolar, personality.
I have a special interest and experience in working with: addiction of alcohol/drugs, sex/porn addiction, and food.
The psychological impact of weight loss surgery.
Trauma: PTSD specifically in those who have experienced childhood sexual abuse. Professional trauma/ emotional detachment.

After the initial online consultation a copy of the therapy contract and personal information form will be sent out.
If you wish to continue with the therapy process -a date will then be agreed between us for therapy to commence.
This can be either online or face to face in my clinic in Haddington
