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
Despite the wettest June on record summer is finally here now, lifting our spirits and offering opportunities for time to relax into the longer light evenings, or take a break from work with a change of scene or holiday away. There is nothing I enjoy more than sitting in my little garden late in the evening, noticing the stillness, enjoying the scent of jasmine and breathing in the fresh mild air.
In work one of the most frequent difficulties I encounter with clients is being able to relax and suffering from persistent worry and anxiety often leading to very low mood or depression. What is it about the summer that enhances well-being and allows us generally to slow down and find a better balance? How can we transfer this summer magic to each season at least for some treasured moments to savour? I think it really is as simple as slowing down, breathing more deeply, and noticing simple natural beauty in the small details of Now. Fear and worry about the unknown future, or regrets about the past prevent us from truly living. Only Now is real, the rest are just illusions of the mind. Thoughts are not true or real, they are simply hypotheticals and are not the Truth. The summer seems to offer more time to slow down and appreciate the joy of Now, but in fact every moment can be lived without judgement or expectation when we pause to step back and reflect how important it is to do so. Wishing everyone summer peace and sunshine throughout the entire year.
