I'm sure you're right that she ought to see a professional, and either a clinical psychologist o a psychiatrist could help. Both could assess her state of mind, and assess the degree of continuing risk of self-harm. From the sound of it she might not need medication, so maybe a psychologist, who, not being able to prescribe drugs, could concentrate on the issues that lead her to do this, and to improving her self-esteem and her ability to cope when her father shouts, might be best. And Paul's so right --- steer clear of those often religious counsellors who are banging their own drum, and meeting their own needs, rather than those of the person seeking help. I know that's not what Parent was suggesting, but such holy rollers are among those who offer themselves as counsellors, and one may not always get what one needs, from them.
And as MoBy says, talk with her, take time to understand her.
if it was the usual sort of minor episode of Dad briefly shouting, OK, but if he tends towards being emotionally abusive, maybe he needs some help, too.
