Human Givens Counselling and Therapy in Cardiff
Is your head full of difficult, muddled, confusing thoughts endlessly circling and interfering with your sleep?
Do you feel overwhelmed by intense emotions uncertain how to manage them and feel safe, balanced and in control again?
Are you struggling to make sense of sudden unexpected, or inevitable changes with a loss of direction and meaning in your life?
Counselling may be exactly what you need right now to help with these and many more difficulties you may be experiencing.
My name is Helga Moore and I have been a practising counsellor for 22 years the last 10 working in Cardiff as a Human Givens Therapist.
I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I work with adults, children and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
We all have essential emotional needs for security, control, connection, intimacy, attention, achievement, status, privacy and meaning. Sometimes we find it difficult to get all our needs met in balance and we are unable to use our innate mental resources to help us achieve this. Often we misuse our imagination and become over emotional so that we are unable to see clearly how to move forward, make the necessary changes and feel happy and fulfilled again.
There are many reasons why this can happen. You may have experienced a huge change, a traumatic loss, or unfair treatment in a relationship, in childhood, or at work. Talking through your experiences can be incredibly healing, developing new perspectives, clarity of understanding and a new sense of direction and hope. It also offers you the time and space to learn new ways of understanding mental health and what you can do to change the way you feel, think and behave.

Thoughts for the month
The end of the year is drawing closer and with it the seasonal rush of frenzied preparations accompanied by excitement or dread. Every year we are bombarded with media hype and pressure to be happy, enjoy the festive spirit and spend as much as possible. But this time of year does not need to be about consumerism. The festive glitter can be enjoyed naturally by the sparkle of frost on the trees on a crisp sunny morning, by frozen lakes and clear bright skies. The rush of family gatherings, over indulgence, parties, jingle bells and massive expectations to have a wonderful time together can feel like a tyranny and many people find this time of year terribly hard. The best of the festive season is really simply about kindness, and generosity of spirit rather than of material gifts. Whatever our religious or spiritual belief perhaps it is important now to step back from the seasonal madness, breathe and consider what is really valuable, and how those simple acts of kindness can create a ripple of love and deep connection more meaningful than any present wrapped in sparkly paper with a shiny ribbon.
