Hello everyone, I self harm and my therapist told him everytime i feel like I want to do it to text him and tell him, no matter what time of day it is and he may not text back right away or text back at all but to just text him. I'm confused about why or if this is ok too do? What you you guys think about this?

Distracts you.

Most professionals frown upon texting BUT my therapist and I text back and forth. I appreciate having that. I don't self harm (anymore) but I have other issues.

I would say if you aren't comfortable tell him you don't want to. But he is comfortable with that so if I were you I would do it.

Thanks for the reply. Sorry I wasn't for sure wether to put it here or somewhere else.

i think it is fine long as you are comfortable doing it. my worry if it were me texting my therapist is that i would feel rejected if they did not reply, maybe that would not happen to you though.
