My name is Mike Eustace and I run the Living Therapy counselling service in Southampton. I am an accredited member of the British Association For Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and I hold a BA Hons (1st) in Humanistic Counselling, a diploma in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), a certificate in couples counselling and a certificate in supervision. I am a member of the Independent Supervisor’s Network (ISN), the Federation of Drug & Alcohol Professionals (FDAP) and an associate member of the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).

I have twenty years’ experience of helping people recover from addiction and I have been in practice as a therapist for more than ten years. I have a special interest in helping people recover from trauma, anxiety and relationship problems. I have a particular interest in counselling men – addressing the barriers to counselling that men frequently experience.

We all experience difficult periods in our lives and I believe that reaching out for help is a healthy, positive step. Whatever your reasons for coming here, you are welcome. My practice is informed by a wealth of experience, training, theoretical and practical knowledge, and a range of approaches including CBT. My principal aim is to accept you entirely as you are and try to understand your problems from your perspective. My experience is that this helps clients feel better about themselves and more able to make the changes they want. I hope to support you through difficult times and help you make beneficial changes in your life. I am willing to walk though darkness with you in search of light.
