Counseling for Cutting and Self-Injury

If you want to stop cutting or injuring yourself and you live in Phoenix or any other location in Arizona, call 602.750.8051.

Cutting and Other Forms of Self-Injury or Self-Mutilation

Someone who self-injures or cuts
  • Overwhelming Problems. Do your problems sometimes overwhelm you?
  • Self-Injury. Does it seem like the only thing that helps is cutting or otherwise injuring yourself?
  • Lack of Understanding. Does it seem like no one understands you or your need to hurt yourself?
  • Hiding Self-Injury. Do you wear long sleeves in hot weather or take other precautions to hide your self-injury?
  • Peers. Are your friends cutters? Do they encourage you to cut also?

Cutters use self-injuring as a way to deal with overwhelming emotions. Cutting releases endorphins that can relieve stress. It is a short-term solution that has to be repeated to be effective. Cutters run the risk of permanent damage, cutting too deeply by accident or catching an infection. There are better ways to deal with your emotions than cutting yourself.
