Nour El Masry Psychotherapy – Birmingham | Counsellor and Psychotherapist in the Jewellery Quarter


“It’s the relationship that heals,” Irvin Yalom


Self-harm, a maladaptive response to intense emotions, involves individuals resorting to harmful actions like cutting, pulling hair, or purposefully injuring themselves. Often born from a lack of support and a desire to cope independently, this behaviour provides only a temporary relief, leading to a recurring cycle of numbness or the return of negative emotions.

As your therapist, my main aim is to create a safe and non-judgmental space where you can freely explore and express your thoughts and emotions. I am committed to understanding the underlying issues behind self-harm and working with you to develop healthier coping strategies.

In our sessions, we’ll dig into the root causes of your intense emotions, pinpointing triggers, and discovering alternative ways to manage stress and difficult feelings. Together, we’ll craft personalized strategies to replace self-harming behaviours with constructive coping mechanisms.

I acknowledge that seeking help and engaging in therapy takes courage, and I am dedicated to supporting you throughout your journey. Whether face-to-face or online, I’m here to assist you in building resilience, enhancing self-awareness, and fostering positive change in your life. Remember, you don’t have to face these challenges alone, and with the right support, healing is possible.
