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 19 years the last 7 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 start of September and for many the end of the holidays with schools, colleges and university resuming. For some that may bring a sigh of relief, for others a mixture of apprehension and excitement - a shift in energy, motivation and expectations for most of us. Change as always is running alongside us. The weather is cooling down and the evenings are starting to get shorter - autumn is just around the corner with all the abundance of harvest fruits and the forest explosion of colours. Politically we are surrounded by uncertainty, what will finally happen with Brexit? And globally as always issues abound: conflict, global warming, the burning of the amazonian rain forests, the threat to the barrier reef, plastic particles discovered in the snow at the furthest reaches of virtually uninhabited areas of our world. How can we as individuals ever make enough difference to live sustainably, and find a better way to walk gently, respectfully with humility and gratitude on our beautiful planet? David Attenborough inspires and educates but is his wisdom and the legacy he will one day have to leave us, enough to claw back the damage which has already been done? So many questions run through my mind. Change is everywhere internally and externally, in our immediate environment, and globally. Somehow I feel we need to all take responsibility for the small acts we can do to make a difference and not become overwhelmed by the enormity of the task. Perhaps the bigger issues allow us to step back from our own individual worries and see a broader perspective. And again when we consider the size and position of our planet in the solar system, in this galaxy, again the perspective extends still further. Everything changes, which can bring great anxiety - how do we cope in this constant state of flux and find a sense of stability and safety? How do we find a way to feel connected, to feel at home? We are so very tiny, minuscule, and yet each of us are unique, and each of us matter. Perhaps all we can do is take quiet, gentle steps each day with an awareness of how precious and fragile life is, and with moments of appreciation and laughter to help us move towards that elusive, essential state of balance.
