Does my school counsellor keep confidentiality if you self harm?

I’ve asked about my school counsellor’s confidentiality, and she said everything is confidential unless there is a danger to your own or someone else’s life. However I don’t know if self harm falls into that category because it isn’t exactly life threatening. I’m already seeing the counsellor for other reasons and I want to tell her about my self harm, but I really don’t want my parents to find out.
