What Is Self Harm?

Self-harm is when your child deliberately cuts or hurts themselves or abuses substances as a coping mechnanism for strong emotions and unwanted thoughts or to regain a sense of control over trigger situations. Other self harming can include over or under eating or asphyxiation. Things that may cause your child to self harm include:
  • Struggling with difficult situations
  • Having unwanted memories
  • Feeling angry or anxious or other strong emotions
  • Feeling their life is out of control
Long term self-harm can lead to children feeling suicidal. Our counselling and therapy for self-harm can help.

How We Can Help

Using child-friendly techniques including games, activities, talking and listening, the team of qualified and experienced therapists will uncover how your child is feeling, the underlying causes and triggers of their self harm and develop strategies to cope.
