Should I talk to my form tutor? - November 13th 2017, 05:36 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Hey!
Basically, my form tutor knows that I self-harm. I had to tell him to stop him from giving me detentions. I am late quite a lot of lessons and he asked me why. Well, my friend told him. He knows, he told me that when he was younger he self-harmed as well so he understands. I don't know whether to ask him about how he stopped because I want to know how to get forward and stop the destructive behaviour without telling my parents. My parents would just get really angry at me and I can't cope with that right now. This is a MASSIVE step for me to write this. But please any advice is welcome for me and I appreciate all the advice I can get!

Hey there,

If you trust your form tutor than they might be a good person to talk to. I think that talking to other people that have experience with self harm can be beneficial. They can give you some insight in what helped them learn to overcome the self harm. However, it is important to remember that what worked for them might not work for you. Different things help people recover from self harm but your teacher might be able to give you some insight and suggestions on what might help.

Best regards and you should be proud of yourself for reaching out. I know it's not an easy thing to do!

Hello and welcome to teenhelp. We are so glad that you have joined.
I think that it's wonderful that you we're able to tell you're tutor about how you self harm. Great job for opening up to him about this. And, you said that he sounds like a great person to talk to about this. You want to have someone in you're life that you trust that you can tell them about this and when you are having a hard time and feel like you want to self harm.

If you feel comfortable asking him for more help then go head because you have already talked with him about this. When you get the feeling to self harm try going for a walk or putting on a funny movie ot TV show or try calling a friend to talk with to get you're mind off of this. I wish you the best and thank you for telling us about this. Please be proud of yourself. Hugs.
