Self-harm is a very common problem, and many people are struggling to deal with it. Perhaps you feel or have felt the need to harm yourself. Perhaps you have been self-harming for some time. Or maybe you have a friend, brother or sister or a son or daughter who is self-harming, or someone you teach or work with is doing it and you need to know more.
Counselling can help you to understand why self harms happens, how to deal with it, and how to recover from what can become a very destructive cycle. Self-harm can be difficult to understand – both for those who do it and also for those who care about them. It is also a subject that has not received much attention up until now, and is still treated as ‘taboo’ by many. But it happens a lot more than people think. The most important thing to understand is that you can recover from the pattern of self-harm, and from feeling the urge to harm yourself.
