Self Harm

Also known as Self injury is defined as the intentional direct injuring of one’s own body but without suicidal intention. This can take a range of forms: cutting, piercing, burning, scratching, banging and hitting one’s own body. It can also include the continual picking of wounds, hair pulling, and/or the ingestion of toxic substances or objects . Some self harming behaviours may be potentially life threatening. The desire to self harm is complex and can range from issues of control, peer pressure, or a sense of belonging, to other disorders such as depression, anxiety, trauma , emotional and sexual abuse.

At Solutions we aim to individualise every course of therapy to best suit the individual and the presenting behaviour. Trust, confidence and empathy are paramount to a successful outcome. We embark for this outcome as a joint venture with the client, in order to obtain the desired freedom and self confidence necessary in every positive outcome
