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
Finally some sense of ‘normality’ is at last returning and with it perhaps a greater sense of hope and optimism. Travel abroad may be difficult this summer but hopefully we will all have more freedom to visit the people we love and less general restrictions of movement at least. It has been a very long haul and after eighteen months certainly not easy to sustain momentum and motivation. Politically the world is still very much in flux and anxiety levels, frustrations and general uncertainty is very much the norm. Most of us have certainly experienced a degree of discomfort if not pain and confusion. It has been, and is continuing to be a time of great challenge with its accompanying layers of stress. Our bodies are hard wired to experience stress as a significant threat rather than as a challenging opportunity. But the ability to shift the perspective, face the changes and grow through them into something different and potentially better has to be the better choice. I was just reading about hermit crabs which feels pain and great discomfort when they outgrow their shells. The choice is to remain painfully inside a shell which no longer fits or shed it with a period of exposure and vulnerability before growing a new bigger and better one. Perhaps these ‘strange times’ have given us the time to pause and feel the pain of a shell we have outgrown? A time when we can either numb the pain through medication, or bravely face our fears and shed a shell which no longer fits?…
The world has been shaken to the core, but maybe, just maybe this shake will rattle something far better, more sustainable, and more compassionate into our universal awareness. I am ever the optimist perhaps, but hope with all my heart that out of this ordeal something far kinder and better will evolve.
