Starting therapy can be daunting. As a queer , non-binary, neurodivergent therapist, it is my aim to hold a space for affirming therapy for all. I have supported people with relationship challenges, people wanting to build and explore relationships with themselves and those looking back at their past and how it could be affecting them today (sometimes presenting as anxiety or depression). I am open to a fun and creative approach to talking therapy built on the relationship between myself and my client. I use relational TA and also have experience of 12step fellowships particularly looking at family dysfunction. I work term time only

I specialise in LGBTQIA therapy, sex & relationships therapy, and bereavement therapy.
I practice as an integrative therapist. Integrative therapy draws from and incorporates different kinds of therapy such as psychodynamic, humanistic and relational therapy. I see real value in the integrative model as I feel that it allows the sessions to adapt and grow around you. It is you, after all, that is the priority of these sessions. Your gender, race, culture, sexuality, class, disability and religion/spirituality all integrate into who you are, and all has importance in the therapy room.

​Being apart of the LGBTQ community, it is my passion to support people with gender identity, coming to terms with sexuality, judgment from others and coming to terms with a diagnosis of HIV.
We can all have times in our lives when we find things tough, we can feel overwhelmed and struggle to cope or we may feel dissatisfied with our lives. This is how counselling can help. ​ I offer a safe space where you can talk openly and privately about your problems, feelings and behaviours. We can build a therapeutic relationship based on trust and respect. It is a non judgmental space for you to speak about issues you face, that you may not feel comfortable to discuss with friends or family.

Are you feeling low? Anxious? Questioning your worth for others and yourself? Feeling isolated irrespective of your social and community connections? You are not alone. Whilst battling these internal conflicts can leave you feeling alienated, and somewhat of a black sheep, my experiences, both professionally and personally, suggest that these are universal of human living. I have worked with a range of such experiences, including depression, suicide ideation, domestic violence, racial identity and various LGBTQ + issues, including gender identity and expression and sexuality.

I have also always had a special interest in working with the LGBTQ + community.
It's good to talk, but it’s even better to be listened to. Carving out the space to focus on ourselves has never been more challenging. Psychotherapy is the chance to do exactly that, a place to build a relationship to safely explore where you are at and where you want to be. I am dedicated to helping my clients find ways forward that feel positive. I aim to support people in making decisions and to explore new possibilities where sometimes we find ourselves stuck in the same old patterns. I aim to instil confidence and help manage feelings of anxiety or low mood and to imagine a new way forward.

I have a particular interest in issues of gender and identity, supporting men’s health needs and also issues faced by the LGBTQIA + community.
We all face challenges in life that cause us distress or leave us feeling unable to cope. You might feel overwhelmed or unable to express how you really feel. I want to help you by offering a safe non judgmental space to unpack what you are going though. You can uncover how past experiences or trauma influence how you view yourself, experience the world and the role your past relationships play in how you show up and interact with others now. This can help you to a place of acceptance, to identify what you need in order to ease your pain, a space to grieve what you truly can’t change, and empower you to choose a better future.

Queer -, trans - and polyamory-affirming. At different points in our lives, we struggle with the feeling that our life has lost its sense of purpose or direction. This experience of aimlessness may lead to feelings of depression, anxiety or confusion. Sometimes this lack of meaning arises after a sudden change in our circumstances such as the loss of a job, the end of a relationship, or a bereavement. At other times, we may feel that over time our lives have drifted further and further away from what we’d hoped for ourselves. At times like these, speaking with an existential psychotherapist can help.

As an LGBTQIA + affirmative therapist, I also work with many LGBTQIA + clients, some of whom come to therapy to explore issues relating to sexuality and gender.
Do you find it difficult to talk to those closest to you about your issues and concerns? Perhaps you don’t want to burden them or feel worried that they might judge or not understand what you are going through? I provide a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space in which you can explore your thoughts and feelings, allowing you to understand more about yourself and your relationships with others. As an integrative counsellor, I work with a variety of therapeutic approaches and methods, and combine them to suit the needs of each individual client.

I mainly work with LGBTQ + folk who wish to meet a counsellor where those aspects of their identity will not be unnecessarily questioned or looked at, but can be spoken about respectfully and safely. I aim to offer you a sense of hope and empowerment, along with techniques you could use in your life to enhance or help you cope with your experience of existence. I can support you to explore whatever is going on in your life such as stress, grief (including for loss of pets), exploring gender identity, exploring sexuality, body image, anxiety or depression.

I believe your therapy should be as unique as you and focus on providing informed support for LGBTQIA + clients, adult children (ACA/ACOA) and anyone who feels they struggle to 'fit in'.
Welcome! Thanks for visiting my profile. Pull up a seat, get comfortable, and lets really talk about what matters to you. There could be a million reasons why you're here....maybe you’ve been trying to hold it all together and feel tired or overwhelmed? Do you sometimes wish there was a manual for navigating relationships or conflict? Perhaps you want to feel better about yourself but don’t know where to start. When your brain is constantly chattering and the to-do list is never-ending, it can feel impossible to find space to hear yourself and consider what's really important.

Whilst I work with people from across all parts of society, my specialism is in LGBTQ lives, particularly gender.
Hello I'm Ellis Johnson, a fully qualified psychodynamic psychotherapeutic counsellor based in Brighton and Hove and a registered member of BACP. I have 5 years experience as an advocate, counsellor and trainer in the voluntary sector and I understand that for many people, asking for help can feel unfamiliar and anxiety-provoking. I also understand with the right support, counselling can be a transformative and validating experience that can make us feel more connected to ourselves and the world around us.

I work privately and at an LGBTQ + counselling service where I see a diverse group of clients, both individuals and couples.
You may be feeling down, unmotivated, anxious or angry and need a safe, impartial space to work through what's troubling you or holding you back, to find a clearer perspective on behaviour patterns and coping mechanisms that no longer serve you. I will guide and nurture you in your process so we can reflect deeply on your concerns and gain the necessary insight into your subconscious drives to discover the change that will enable you to move forward in your life and flourish as your authentic self.
