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 22 years the last 10 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
I love the summer with the long evenings of light and warm weather to lighten the spirits. Perhaps it is generally easier to feel balanced and content at this time of year, but sometimes when life is challenging the warmth and light can feel almost an added burden with a layer of guilt because it might feel so hard to manage life even when the climate suggests greater ease? Whatever you're feeling through the sunshine months I hope you can find a way to be gentle with yourself and quietly let go of expectations of what you 'should' or 'should not' feel at this time of year. What you are feeling is happening for a reason and all of those emotions are part of who you are and what you need to explore right now. Sometimes time and space alone to reflect and unravel those feelings and thoughts is all you need, and sometimes it's easier to work it through alongside a friend or therapist. Whatever you need I hope you find it....
Here is a poem I love which expresses just this:
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 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.
