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 the needs of the people I work alongside, using evidence based practice and various theoretical models: Cognitive Behavioural, Person Centred, Solution focussed, Transactional Analysis, Compassion focussed, Motivational Interviewing, Rational Emotive behaviour (REBT) 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 since 2015 across various settings, in both paid and voluntary posts. I currently work across organisations (including NHS, EAP) and in private practice.
This ensures a wide breadth of knowledge, skills and experience. Adherence to several ethical frameworks (BACP, SSSC, BPS) frequent clinical supervision which allows me to provide the best possible practice and safeguard your welfare.
