Self-harming can take a number of forms, all of which are designed to cause injury to oneself.  Cutting, self-burning, hitting one’s head or other parts of the body, hair-pulling and even self-poisoning and self-strangulation are all types of self-harm which are commonly used as a means of individuals punishing themselves or attempting to gain control over their own lives.  In some cases, people self-harm because they feel numb or disconnected from everything and everyone around them, or in order to achieve some temporary relief from the symptoms of stress, depression or anxiety. 

Although more common in youngsters and adolescents, self-harming is also becoming increasingly common in the older generations.


"Joseph is amazing. I really am entirely grateful for his time, patience, intellect and emotional support. Working with him has been life changing for me. Since starting with him over 18months ago, I have changed careers and am now on the road to pursuing my dream of starting my own business.He has an innate ability to balance logic and emotion which never ceases to amaze me. He sees through my “clouds”, thoughts and emotion, and gets a real sense of what I am experiencing whilst remaining grounded.He has a genuine knack of knowing exactly where I am and how to work with me to get the most out of me. Whether that be; challenging me, motivating me or sitting with me in times I just need to be heard.Joseph has a fantastic way of connecting the dots to my past which enables me to make sense of why I may be behaving in a certain way.Joseph is a kind and warm person who genuinely really cares. He is incredibly patient and observant. To top it off, he has a great sense of humour which never fails to lighten the tone. He has a diverse set of skills and has supported me across the board in my life from my work, to my relationships with self and others.
