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 23 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

The early winter months are often a time when many of us feel a sense of heaviness and anti-climax after all the frenzied busyness at the end of the year and Christmas. It can be a difficult time especially with the cold days and long nights. Hibernation seems perhaps an appealing option - oh to be a hedhehog!! But it can also be a time to reflect and gently introspect on possiblity and positive change. I came across this wonderful poem by David Whyte which seemed just right to share at this moment when perhaps so many of us may be plodding along feeling the winter heaviness and possibly struggling to find the light of hope and warmth. I hope it touches you as it did me....

 

The Gleam - by David Whyte

 

Sometimes

In the midst

of every difficult

and everyday

awkward

way you try to

make your

onward way,

 

sometimes

sitting down

at the edge

of everything

that has made you 

too tired

to take

another step

 

there’s that

caught sight,

now here,

now gone

 

of a half imagined

wavering light

just among

the trees

 

just a gleam

or a wisp

of white gold

in the dying sun

 

a strange kind

of beckoning,

 

an ache

outlined

so intimately

as it is,

against

all of the doings

you have

labelled

so lovingly

as sins,

 

the place you

should have gone

all those years ago

still, it seems,

willing

to invite you again,

 

simpler this time, 

not too far away,

touchable now,

and within reach

 

just a single step

on the other side

of what you always 

come to call

in the end,

forgiveness.
