Hi @Lizzy, this is a heart-wrenching situation for you and that feeling of helplessness is well and truly justified. I'm so glad to hear that you've sought help for yourself as well as your daughter, because it's really important to have someone to talk to, and be able to 'fall apart' in front of while you are putting on a brave front for your daughter.
We have a fact sheet on some ways you might be able to help your daughter manage self-harming behaviour that might be helpful but please know that you are doing the best you can by making sure that your daughter has a psychologist she can talk to and reminding her that you love her and are there whenever she needs.
We have other parents in this forum who have been in the same position that you are now with their daughters, who I'm sure will jump in with some further words of support.
Please keep us posted on how you are doing.
P.S. I hope you don't mind but I moved your post to new thread so that more of our other ReachOut parents can find it.
