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

Summer is really here now with the summer solstice behind us, Glastonbury, the Euros, Wimbledon, and so many possibilities to enjoy the warmer days. The sunshine may still be unpredictable but at least there is more light to expand into. I love the long evenings and beautiful expansive skies that this time of year brings. It's so nice to spend longer outside in the garden, parks and countryside. Everything feels more hopeful with bright energy and possibility. Light really does make such a difference to me. But everything has its season... and I always try to remind myself that this too will pass.... the sunshine days as much as the grey and rainy ones. I guess the art to living is to be as present as possible in this moment now, with that poignant awareness that everything is temporary and each moment whatever it brings is precious too...

Here is a poem which I love and which speaks to me of awe and wonder, of perfection within imperfection...... I hope it touches you as it does me....


The Ponds - by Mary Oliver


Every year the lilies

are so perfect I can hardly believe

their lapped light crowding the black,

midsummer ponds.

Nobody could count all of them -

the muskrats swimming

among the pads and the grasses

can reach out 

their muscular arms and touch

only so many, they are that rife and wild.

But what in this world is perfect?

I bend closer and see how this one is clearly lopsided -

and that one wears an orange blight -

and this one is a glossy cheek half nibbled away -

and that one is a slumped purse

full of its own unstoppable decay.

Still, what I want in my life is to be willing to be dazzled -

to cast aside the weight of facts

and maybe even to float a little

above this difficult world.

I want to believe I am looking

into the white fire of a great mystery.

I want to believe that the imperfections are nothing -

that the light is everything - that it is more than the sum

of each flawed blossom rising and falling.

And I do.
