Hiring a Self-Harming therapist is beneficial and important to patients struggling with the condition. Coping mechanisms a therapist might try with the patient include painting, drawing or writing to express their emotions. Taking a hot shower or nice bath to ease tension. Squeezing or throwing ice cubes can have a quick and painless effect that allows the client to divert their anger into physical objects that don?t involve themselves. Exercising or punching a pillow or mattress is also discussed. The therapist may also help a client in treatment learn about self-esteem exercises and behaviors such as meditation, mindfulness and creative expression that will assist them into becoming able to handle future triggering situations without acting out on an impulse to self-harm again.
