The company was initially set up as Lothian Psychological Assessments Ltd in 2015 and offered only a court report services to solicitors. Due to huge demand for psychological services for adults and young people the company changed to Lothian Psychology Ltd in September 2018.

Lothian Psychology uses only fully qualified and registered staff to undertake court reports. Dr Potter herself undertakes assessments with families and also runs a private practice in Musselburgh.
