For some people, self-harm is a way of coping with painful and difficult feelings and distress.
You may harm yourself because you feel overwhelmed and don’t know how else to deal with things.
It is usually a very private issue and the motivations and methods used will differ from person to person.
Some forms of self-harm can carry a serious risk, but this doesn’t mean that if you self-harm you always intend to cause yourself serious injury.
Therapy may help you discover and deal with the feelings that are causing you to self-harm (151). Counselling and Psychotherapy may be provided via Skype and FaceTime in the comfort of your home, office or any place of your choice.
