Don’t know how to deal with this

My son is 15 and has special needs....adhd, autism and learning difficulties. He started scratching his arms and hands in August of this year so I am quite new to all this. He is also feeling down and depressed . He has been quite open about the self harming from the start and is already receiving counselling. It’s really freaking me out though and affecting my mental health. I just don’t know how to handle it when he scratches himself. It breaks my heart looking at the scratches. Any advice would be most welcome.
