    About Zoe Chouliara

    Zoë is an award winning clinical academic. She is a Senior Practitioner Counselling and Health Psychologist, Person-Centred Psychotherapist/Counsellor, and Professional Transformational Coach. Zoë is an experienced researcher with a portfolio of publications and funded research in the area of person centred care and vulnerable groups in health care.

    Her most recent research focuses on the role of relational variables- mainly Interpersonal Trust- in physical and mental health, on psychosocial aspects of dermatology, and on person-centred models of recovering and growth following adversity. She is the lead author of the Acts of Recovery, the first evidence-based, survivor-centred self-help booklet for survivors of childhood abuse. The booklet is currently being used in clinical services in this country and overseas, i.e. Australia and India. The booklet is also endorsed by the Scottish Government, Survivor Scotland and the Scottish Recovery Network. Zoë has been nominated for an Equal Opportunities Award by the British Psychological Society (BPS) for her work.

    She has also been awarded the BJN Dermatology Award 2016, as part of the team of trainers delivering the first ever Dermatology Masterclass nationally and internationally. She has successfully led a specialist psychology in plastics service in NHS Tayside for three years, one out of only four similar services in the country, where she worked with individuals with severe and/or complex body image and appearance related distress, providing psychological assessment and treatment. She is a person-centred practitioner, one out of a few Person Centred practitioner-academics psychologists in the UK (the youngest and the only female), and clinical supervisor/trainer with experience that spans across the voluntary, independent sector and the NHS.

    She was a clinician with the Medical Foundation (now Freedom from Torture), where she practised clinically with survivors of torture/organised violence. She is one out of a few practitioner psychologists in the UK and internationally with clinical experience in human rights and organised violence.
