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
This wonderful Indian summer seems to be holding even as we move into October, although the first frost and crisp freshness of Autumn can be felt in the morning air also. The inevitable changes in the countryside and weather as the seasons seamlessly follow one another is constant. Change in so many forms, is possibly one of the very few things we can all be certain of and which so often causes anxiety and concern. We hear everywhere how important it is to "let go" and simply accept whatever life brings mindfully living in the moment. A very wise and simple attitude but not always so easy to achieve. Our emotions often seem to rule us and challenge us to feel in any way in control, balanced or rational. It is so very hard to always accept our emotional reactions to unforeseen events with wisdom, kindness and equanimity. Perhaps this is simply the fundamental nature of being a human, and the art of living is about accepting these challenges with patience and compassion? Here is one of my favourite poems which so eloquently explores this dilemma written by Rumi over 700 years ago.
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
Some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
Who violently sweep your house
Empty of its furniture.
Still treat each guest honourably,
He may be clearing you out
For some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
Meet them at the door laughing,
And invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
Because each has been sent
As a guide from beyond.
