VMT and Self Harm

I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect when I arrived at my first session of VMT, I was really nervous and spent a while more sitting there trying to encourage myself to get out and walk inside. Desperation was eventually what pushed me over the line to have the confidence to do it because quite simply, I felt like this group might be my last chance to overcome self injury.

Anger and I

Anger and I don’t get on very well – I grew up being taught to not hit back if I was hurt, to turn the other cheek, to take it ‘like a man’ and not complain – yet I felt the injustice of injury towards myself, and, as I grew up, I also felt keenly the injustice meted out to others who could not fight back or protect themselves.
