Welcome to the Discover Your Self Blog

Welcome to my blog. People often ask me what I do, and, when they get my answer, assume that it must be a very distressing job. I love my work because I get to be someone who sees how people change, become more confident, develop self-esteem and resolve difficult and painful problems or situations in their lives, or come to terms with significant loss. I always feel excited and immensely privileged to be a part of that, so, no, I don’t find my work distressing, even as I empathise and feel with those who are struggling to find their way out of distressing situations.

I set up this blog so I can keep people informed about what is going on in the world of personal therapy and self development. I aim to share insights without disclosing confidences, to share new information, strategies and maybe even techniques for combating difficult people and situations.

I invite you to share too, if you have questions, experiences and strategies that have helped you move forward in your life. I will offer book reviews, a synopsis or two about recent articles in relevant press and journals. If there is anything else you would like to see here please feel free to ask. I, and I’m sure others, would love to hear from you.

Warm regards
Annette Ansell

About Annette Ansell

Annette Ansell Helping you create a better future for yourself I am a Client-Centred counsellor/psychotherapist with 18 years experience of working with individuals and couples. I work from my consulting rooms in Fleet Street, EC4, within The City of London, near the Royal Courts of Justice, the Old Bailey and financial hub of London. I also have a private practice in Hook Norton, Oxfordshire. Pic believe that we are all unique and therefore the only real experts on ourselves. I believe we can all be trusted to find our own way through our problems, anxieties and life crises if we are listened to empathically, non-judgementally, with a non-directive approach and willingness from the therapist to put herself fully into attempting to understand and empathise with what our situations are like for us, and what our individual meanings and experiences truly are. The power of witnessing someone's story should never to be underestimated.
