Eugene Ellis

Eugene Ellis is a psychotherapist and the founder of the Black, African and Asian Therapy Network (BAATN), a network of therapists committed, passionate and actively engaged in addressing the psychological needs of Black, African and South Asian people in the UK. Eugene has worked for many years with severely traumatised children and their families in the field of adoption and has a special interest in body-orientated therapies and facilitating a dialogue around race and mental wellbeing through articles, podcasts and blog posts. He practices mediation and mindfulness in a Buddhist context. 

His book, ‘The Race Conversation: An essential guide to creating life-changing dialogue’, explores not just the cognitive and historical development of the race construct, but also focuses specifically on the non-verbal communication of race, both as a means of social control and as an essential part of navigating oppressive patterns.
