Cutting It Out: A Journey through Psychotherapy and Self-Harm

Synopsis

"Cutting it Out breaks the silence surrounding self-harm and tells the story of a young woman's conflict between her compulsion to cut herself and her courage to overcome this destructive addiction. Initially resistant to recovery, she embarks on a challenging journey through therapy. She experiences conflicting feelings of obsession and antagonism towards her therapist and conceals her self-harm from others before gaining the strength to face her demons and take control of her life again. Cutting it Out explores what drives someone to harm themselves and the struggles encountered in the therapeutic process. This compelling read will be of particular interest to therapists, counsellors, people who self-harm or who are in therapy, as well as their families and friends."
