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 18 years the last 6 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
January can be a difficult month for many: the cold and darkness of winter seems to stretch ahead; the frenzy of Christmas anticipation and celebration is over; the excess of the holiday season may need to be addressed both financially and physically; and New Year resolutions seem to be required. Perhaps now is the perfect time to really consider what we need and what is missing. Rather than making another limiting and unsustainable resolution, maybe all we need is to allow ourselves to pause and reflect with honesty and self compassion. Although it’s difficult not to be affected by the global conflicts and political instability surrounding us, rather than giving in to helplessness and despair maybe we can counter that sense of powerlessness with small acts of kindness: trust that the ripples of warmth will spread hope slowly and surely moment by moment, reminding us that what we do matters and really does make a difference. Kindness - not only towards others but towards ourselves also - perhaps that is the best New Year’s resolution which can ever be made.
