We now have two major areas of work.

The first is offering a service to the legal community looking for Expert Witness and report writing. Although Dr Potter herself primarily undertakes family reports we have specialists in many areas. Please contact us to see if we can assist you.

New for 2018 and following huge demand we now offer psychoeducational anxiety and stress control groups. These groups are run in the community and offer participants a way to learn about the psychological aspects of stress and anxiety and ways in which they can take control of these. We run both a teen stress group and one for adults. Please get in touch with any questions or to book your place. All groups run in Haddington in the evenings. They are fun, informal small groups learning together about the ways in which psychologists can alleviate stress in our day to day lives. 


“I was very impressed with the service received from Lothian Psychology. They were very easy to instruct and to discuss instructions with. The report was produced within a good timescale and the terms of and the recommendations were very constructive.”

“I instructed Lothian Psychology to look at complex evidence relating to child attachment and greatly valued the skilled input from Dr Potter and her team.”

Alan Rodger, Solicitor

“I instructed Dr Louise Potter in a family case. I found her report extremely detailed and value for money. The report was turned around quickly. I would use Lothian Psychology for any future reports. I was overall extremely happy with the service.”
