Starting Self-harm counseling

What is Self-harm counseling?

Self-harm counseling is aimed at helping individuals who struggle with harming themselves break this pattern by addressing the underlying emotional causes and work to develop new, healthier coping skills. Thriveworks self-harm therapists in Colorado Springs, CO are experienced in treating those who self-harm with empathy, compassion, and unconditional regard in order to help them heal and recover, both physically and emotionally.

How does Self-harm counseling work?

Self-harm counseling at Thriveworks often uses cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy to help clients discover the connections between their thoughts and feelings and their behaviors. By assessing these areas, Thriveworks Colorado Springs therapists can help clients find and address the true emotional roots of their patterns and, from there, effectively adjust unwanted behaviors.

Is Self-harm counseling conducted in person or online?

Self-harm counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Self-harm counseling last?

The duration of self-harm counseling will often depend on a variety of factors, such as the intensity of an individual's symptoms or the current levels of stress present in their lives. Because of this, treatment can last a handful of months or on a continual basis over the course of years. In the end, it's up to the client and their individual needs.

Need more help deciding?

An 18 year old on his own for the first time at college. A 28 year old mother of twins overwhelmed with life. A 14 year old moving to a new community.  A 55 year old man who has been let go from a downsizing company. From the outside, these individuals look like they are at different phases in life and would have nothing in common; however, upon closer inspection, what they share is emotional distress. The stressors are different but how they may be managing those overwhelming emotions may not be.

What is Self-Harm?

Self-harm, also called self-injury, is the urge to deliberately hurt yourself. While generally not a suicidal action, it is an attempt to cope with the intense feelings one is having. Self-harm may help distract, express emotions one cannot put into words, or release emotional pain.

Self-harm can last for a short timeframe while dealing with overwhelming stressors or as a regular and ongoing mechanism to cope.

How to support someone who is self-harming

  • Listen without judgment. Lecturing, criticizing or offering advice may make their urge to self-harm more intense.
  • Express your love and support. Communicate how much you care for them and that you are available whenever they need you. You cannot force them into healing, but you can be there when they are ready to take next steps in managing their emotions in healthier ways.

Jerry was amazing! Jerry uses choice theory in order to help his patients grow and work through their problems. Choice theory was helpful through my relationship counseling but also could be used individually to helps each person grow themselves. Jerry used real scenarios in order to water down the theory, making it less scientific and more geared toward individual use. Jerry was patient, helpful, and very understanding.
