I'm Carole Miles and I am experienced integrative therapist, MBACP Accredited with over 20 years’ experience.
I use several approaches crafted over many years to aid clients on their journey towards personal growth, healing and positive change.
I have had the opportunity of working with a large number of clients with a wide range of issues from anxiety, depression, substance misuse, relationship issues to acute trauma.
I have also provided clinical supervision to psychotherapists, frontline staff who work with traumatised victims and team managers who run therapeutic support services, for the NHS, Universities, charities and other great institutions.
Then about 8 years ago I set up Ealing Counselling Service and with all my experience I am able to help clients through difficult periods in their lives - with a wide range of treatments to help them find their authentic selves.
Becoming a counsellor wasn't my first job, I worked in Media and TV Production. I should have been happy by all accounts - but I wasn't! So, i made a life-changing choice and qualified as a counsellor. It was the best decision I have ever made!
Helping people to explore their feelings and piece together the many conflicting parts of themselves and seeing them begin to feel whole again is why I do this!
There is nothing more rewarding than making a difference in peoples lives and helping them recover.
Taking the first steps towards engaging in therapy can be a very personal journey and I believe with the right the therapy you can unlock your true potential and find a happier fulfilling life.
Lee-anna Devine Integrative Counsellor
You can call me Lee!
My experiences of overcoming the ripple effects of mental health, trauma, addiction, and discrimination, have equipped me with a unique set of experiences, that set me apart from most. I became a counsellor to support others through the many challenges that life presents, but also to break down barriers, by being a visible presence in a field that lacks sufficient diversity, in increasingly progressive times.
I am a Black woman with mixed heritage, I am also a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ community. My own intersectional identity, and the multiple layers of discrimination I have experienced, have helped me to understand the extra trauma involved in being not only a minority, but a sub minority. Mental health does not discriminate, but discrimination has a major impact on mental health.
I am an integrative counsellor trained in both eurocentric and afrocentric concepts. Having more than one approach gives me access to extensive knowledge, and skills, which can be tailored based on individual client needs. I have previously worked as mentor, helping others to maximise their potential, while my background in sports and exercise science allow me to adopt a holistic approach to health and well being.
As an individual I am extremely warm, non-judgemental, and open minded, with a quirky, infectious personality, and sense of humour. There is no problem too big or too small, whatever your journey is, I am happy to walk alongside you.
