Hello Margo, This psychologist should have his license revoked for laughing at you. This is not only unprofessional, it is unethical. You go there for counseling telling him your personal business. It is his job to listen to you with compassion and discuss tools for your recovery. I used to cut myself when I was 18, 19 and 20, with knifes and rasor blades in my arms. I did it to feel my identity. I recommend the books by Esther Hicks and Thich Nhat Hanh. Take care. Nicola
