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 20 years the last 8 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
A new era for us begins politically and with it perhaps the end of some uncertainty and sense of limbo. For many of us we may be approaching this with a sense of dread and mourning, for others perhaps more hope that the changes will be positive - for all of us the necessity to accept the inevitability of change at the very least…
And with this February continues the cold of winter and despite the nights gradually becoming shorter perhaps a desire for hibernation remains with many of us still. Withdrawal can be appealing when the light and warmth of the sun is limited, and sometimes it feels right to let go and accept a slower quieter pace as the animals outside do. To balance this natural impulse and to energise and stimulate the mind and body, brisk walks in the fresh cool air are always helpful - time to move and free the mind from annoying negative thoughts - and perhaps time to consider change and releasing any recurring feelings of doubt and anxiety, or questioning those patterns of behaviour which sometimes prevent us from moving in the direction we really need and hope for. There is perhaps a privacy about winter which no other season may give us - longer, quiet stretches of time when we can savour belonging just to ourselves.
Enjoy the long, quiet stretches and grow into yourself this month.
