I would like my daughter who is 15 to be assessed by a psychiatrist

Resolved Question:

I would like my daughter who is 15 to be assessed by a psychiatrist as she has started self harming again. She did it a year ago and had stopped but is now not in a good place and has returned to cutting again.she won't go into detail with me but does talk and is close to me.she keeps everything to herself and doesn't really unload on her friends. She has a friend who she helps by talking and texting but I don't know if this is to the detriment of her own situation . She had counselling last year through the NHS but doesn't want to go back through that system. I am at a loss as I went to the Doctors last year and whilst they appreciate the position really seem to feel she will. Grow out of it and lost of youngsters go through it. One of her issues is that I was paralysed from the chest down in a car accident 12 years ago. My husband was driving. I have told her I hate my situation but have to get on as nothing can change it and her energy worrying about me is wasted for that reason,
Are there any psychiatrists locally that I can contact privately to get assistance for my daughter .? Fay Kelly
