Human Givens Counselling and Therapy in Cardiff
In the present Coronavirus crisis I am mainly offering therapy online but can offer face to face also with Covid safety observed
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 21 years the last 9 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 summer and the beginning of autumn feels imminent to me, and with it a certain poignancy and sense of uncertainty. What will this autumn and winter feel like this year? Will it be different from last year with all the difficulties of covid restrictions? I am certainly still adapting and adjusting to the precarious nature of how the world feels right now. How do we really experience a sense of safety, connection and belonging, especially now in the context of the pandemic and everything which is happening in Afghanistan? What does the word ‘belonging’ really mean? Be-longing - being and longing. Longing feels like an ache, but perhaps in order ‘to be’ in the moment we need the pain of feeling? Maybe our expectations and perceptions of life have become removed from what life is really about? How often do we busy ourselves with activities away from feeling too much - virtuous or pointless distractions to fill the day until it’s time to sleep. Most of us are struggling with how to manage or mute our feelings. Maybe in order to experience real connection and security we need to feel more not less? Perhaps we need to welcome the ache of ‘longing’ in order to really ‘be’? Instead of moving away we need to move towards, however painful that may seem at first? Perhaps that is the way to really feel alive and connected to the reality of what it is to be human?…
