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 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
Five months on with a definite autumnal feel in the air now, life is perhaps starting to feel more settled in some ways. Lockdown is easing to a certain extent and some of the limitations are being tentatively lifted. Schools will soon be re-opening and students returning to college and university with many changes of course and some uncertainty of how it will all work out. Slowly it seems we are becoming accustomed to living alongside layers of uncertainty with no definite answers as to when and how “normality” may return. But the weather has been kind on the whole and at least there has been the possibility of light and movement outdoors with caution at a safe distance from others. The 'Black lives matter' movement has focussed our attention on the massive racial divide which is insidious in society the world over, and perhaps this powerful rising will truly bring about some positive change in a political and practical way at long last? Remaining optimistic in these challenging times can be a struggle as the structure and regularity of life has for most of us dramatically altered, but I firmly believe this time does have many positives and possibilities for deep and meaningful change and growth. Now is the time perhaps to simplify and reflect on what truly matters away from the frenzy and continual movement of our old lives. We have been forced to simplify, stop and change, and however scary that has perhaps felt, through that discomfort something different and maybe kinder and more sustainable has the space to grow and blossom. Amidst the sadness of change and loss hope is always present if we stop and breathe through the distress to really see and listen. All of us are adapting and changing because we must and because that is how we evolve, and I strongly believe we will move through these days to a better simpler, kinder and more connected world with perhaps less material stuff, but far more compassion and generosity.
