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 working to develop new, healthier coping skills. Thriveworks self-harm therapists in Maumelle, AR 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 Maumelle 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.

Self-Harm Therapists and Counselors in Maumelle, AR

When trauma strikes or when stress arises, it may trigger deep psychological pain. For some, the best way they know to survive is to translate their emotional pain into physical pain.

Many people who have used self-harm in the past are learning that there are other ways of handling their pain. If you are ready to learn a different way, Thriveworks Maumelle is ready to support you in that journey. Our therapists have helped many people stop injuring themselves and find true healing and hope. Reach out today to get started.

Examples of Self-Harm Behavior

While cutting may be the most talked-about form of self-harm, it is only one of many. Self-injury can take many forms, and the method is often personal to each individual. Examples of self-harming behavior include…

  • Plucking out one’s hair—Painfully removing substantial amounts of body hair.
  • Interfering with the body’s natural healing process—Undoing scabs or stitches, aggravating wounds, et cetera.
  • Carving, tattooing, branding—Using words, symbols, or pictures as a part of the injury.
  • Burning—Damaging skin with heat, matches, cigarettes, irons, ropes, or more.
  • Pinching, biting, punching, slapping, or hitting oneself.
  • Cutting—Stabbing, slashing, scratching, or piercing the skin with a sharp object or knife.

People may participate in one or more of these forms when they self-injure. They may also utilize self-harm when they feel particularly stressed or triggered but cycle through other coping mechanisms under other circumstances. Others may use self-harm on a regular basis, possibly even as a daily ritual.

What Are the Risk Factors for Self-Injury?

Certain situations can increase an individual’s risk for turning to self-injury as a coping method. While the details will vary from situation to situation, people who self-harm often also face:

  • A Mental Health Diagnosis: Particular mental health diagnoses are often accompanied by self-harming behaviors as a symptom or side effect. In particular, people who have been diagnosed with phobias, a conduct disorder, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, an autism spectrum disorder, depression, or schizophrenia may also self-injure.
  • Intense Psychological Pain: Some who self-mutilate have lived through child abuse, neglect, poverty, domestic violence, bereavement, and more. These traumas can trigger feelings of self-hatred, shame, and guilt, and people may turn these feelings upon themselves and their own bodies.
  • Drug or Alcohol Use: Often, when people self-harm, alcohol or drugs are present. One study looked at self-injury patients at a hospital in Northern Ireland, and in over 60 percent of people, alcohol played a role in their self-harm.

Finding Other Coping Techniques

If people turn to self-harm, they are most likely doing what they know to survive and process the terrible experiences they have endured. Many people, however, are learning a new way, and as the cliché goes, “when we know better, we do better.” Learning coping skills that bring health and healing is possible, and many people are learning how to stop harming themselves and instead…

  • Make your emotional and physical safety a top priority. What would it like to feel safe instead of numb or panicked? What changed need to be make and what emotional wounds could be healed? Many people are learning to make choices that account for their own well-being.
  • Practice mindfulness. Mindfulness is a fancy word for paying attention to what you are feeling, thinking, and experiencing. Mindfulness is about getting to know yourself and allow your own values to guide your life.
  • Reach out to a friend. Think about the people in your life who support you. Call them. Share as you feel comfortable. Another possibility is to join a support group for people who self-harm.

I cannot say enough good about this place. They honestly do strive to get you in to see a practitioner quickly. And the importance of being seen soon to someone who is at a bad psychological point cannot be understated. It can, literally, mean the difference between life and death. After years of no longer being able to trust mental health providers due to so much misdiagnosis I reached out to Thriveworks. I asked for a particular practitioner, and they had me in to see her the following day. Kristy's approach was welcoming, empathetic, friendly, and down-to-earth. She did not speak down to me as a patient, but she made a comfortable effort to connect from the beginning. Gaining my trust over several weeks she was able to start showing me some things no one ever took the time to extract. She found me at the precipice of a terrible situation and worked me back from the ledge. Her input to Zack, along with his personable and empathetic personality, finally got me on medications that actually have improved my situation more than I could have ever imagined. The combination of her therapy and the medications have me, for the first time in decades, recognizing a hope for the future. All I can say is if you are that person who has lost hope and feels as though you have no purpose, let the Thriveworks team have a chance to show you a you even you didn't know existed. Without hyperbole I can honestly say I owe my life going forward to Kristy and Zack.

After working with Zack for a year I would say that he is very dependable and does show concern for his patients. There is never any problem with following hospital policy. Always a good man to have on your team.

Zacks a wonderful guy to see. He really listens to all your concerns and explains your treatment options in detail. Anyone that sees him is going to feel comfortable talking to him and not have that feeling as if your talking to a stranger.

I've dealt with severe anxiety and depression for as long as I can remember, and have seen multiple providers to try and get control of my emotions. I thought I was a lost cause until I found Zack. He was the first "medicine guy" that I met with that actually got me! He has a calming demeanor and had me very comfortable from the very first appointment. He's easy to work with and actually cares about how I'm feeling! Seeing Zack was the best decision I could have made. Now I'm feeling much better and finally feel like I can breathe. Thank you Zack and Thriveworks for all you do!

I would like to thank you for helping out a family member in need. North Little Rock isn't far away and that made everything easy for a depression/anxiety patient. Office was easy to get to.

Ms. Tenethrea Buffington is the best! I went in telling her that I didn't believe in coaching/therapy, well I was wrong. She help me in my difficult situation and I could not be more happy with where I stand with it.
