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.

My specialism lies in working with issues realted to being LGBTQ.
Counselling can be an exciting and challenging journey, dealing with what's happening right now or looking at those important moments from your past. I will support you on this journey to understand yourself better, giving you the potential to grow and develop self-awareness. You and I will look at how you think, feel and behave, which can give you focus on which parts of yourself you want to develop, and which parts you can use to support the work you do. This is very important and useful on the counselling journey. You will have the space and time, to work through and develop your understanding of yourself, to feel more at ease.

I identify as a gay man and I have worked extensively with the GSRD, queer and LGBTQ+ communities.
My counselling practice comes from my belief in the unique transformative power that every human being possesses. I provide you with an open space for exploration and creativity. I welcome any distress, confusion or pain you may be experiencing and will sit with you and provide support, reflection and new perspectives while you do whatever you feel you need to do. I also welcome your joy, love and self-acceptance. We will meet in an unjudging space and form a relationship which allows you to access new ways to express yourself and come to terms with what it is to be a human being.

If you identify as LGBTQ, it can make a huge difference to find an LGBTQ-identified and affirmative counsellor who accepts you as you are, with warmth and understanding. I have nineteen years experience supporting lesbian, gay, bi, trans, non-binary, queer and straight adults from diverse backgrounds. I provide a safe, confidential opportunity to speak freely about problems that are affecting you and explore your fears, hopes and dreams. I work exclusively online via Skype and Zoom: because people often feel more relaxed and open in their own spaces, online therapy relationships can have a unique depth and ease.

I welcome members of the LGBTQ community and offer support for related issues of gender, sexuality and relationship diversity.
Speaking with someone for the first time about personal issues or trauma can feel daunting. Sometimes it's important to talk with someone separate from your family and friends, someone who is there solely for you and with you. I provide a space for us to develop the environment where you feel safe and not judged. You may be experiencing trauma or bereavement, the effects of historical issues, or coping with the current pandemic. A lot of people come to therapy because life just feels unmanageable and are struggling with day to day living. The session will be held by me but led by you.

I am an experienced BACP accredited psychodynamic counsellor, currently based in Phoenix Therapy Practice. I believe that no issue is too small nor too great to bring to therapy – if it causes you pain, you will benefit from opening up about it in the long run. I believe everyone’s internal world needs to be approached with curiosity and openness. My approach is rooted in traditional psychoanalysis but progressive in the way I practice it. It is suitable for adults of all ages and backgrounds and also LGBTQ/kink and poly-friendly.
