About Eugene

Eugene Ellis is a psychotherapist, writer and public speaker. For many years, he has worked with severely traumatised children and their families in the field of adoption and has a particular interest in body-orientated practice and facilitating the healing of trauma.

For the past 20 years, he has been the director and founder of the Black, African and Asian Therapy Network, the UK’s largest independent organisation to specialise in working therapeutically with Black, African, Caribbean and Asian people.

Eugene’s book, ‘Transforming Race Conversations: A Healing Guide For Us All’ (2024), previously published as “The Race Conversation” (2021), delves into the story of race, exploring its historical and social construction, the language of race, the impact of race trauma on the body, and how intergenerational race trauma continues to impact us today. The aim of the book is to take the reader beyond the familiar places of the race construct to reclaim our sanity, encourage open-mindedness and curiosity and strive for positivity and personal growth.

Eugene is a Buddhist within the Triratna Buddhist Community.
