Self-Harm Therapy

Self-harming is, sadly, a common way for people to deal with difficult thoughts and feelings. The reasons for doing these things are varied, but it's common for traumatic or stressful events to have triggered it.

Hurting yourself can be quite a dangerous coping mechanism, so seeking help is strongly advised before it goes too far.
