What is Self Harming?


Self-harm is the process of intentionally injuring yourself. Generally speaking it is usually a way of coping with and expressing severe distress.


Signs of self harming

  • Low moods spells
  • Arms and legs covered
  • Scratches, cuts, bruises to arms legs and chest
  • Lack of self-confidence and self loathing
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Becoming withdrawn
  • Guilt
  • Low self esteem and negative thoughts
  • A loss of sex drive
  • Erratic sleeping and eating patterns.
  • Excessive drinking and drug taking
  • Pulling out of hair


Most people who suffer with this condition will be first treated by their doctor, but any many cases better progress is made by a referral to a trained psychotherapist who specialises in mental health issues
