Sometimes that is the best thing to do but in other cases a councilor can really help .
I think we all have hard times with parents some people more so than others . I have now come to realise tho that parents are only looking out for you and they want you to stay safe and not get involved in gangs and other crap so even when i totaly disagree with what my parents are telling me not to do i have an argument but afterwards i realise this and thank myself lucky i have caring parents
The things i would do is speak to your parents . Just because you have tried before , try again and again . It may take a few conversations/arguments but if you are consistent then they may get the point
The thing is i would prefer to sort out what has caused this by dealing with your parents rather than take threapy or councilling cos whats to say a few months after councilling your parents will be getting you down again and you will feel the same .Also it is better to let your parents know how you feel cos then . prevention is better than cure and so i say tackle the cause of the problem rather than try and shy away from it .
Just whatever you do dont do anything stupid like harm yourself because whatever you may think i am sure your parents care about you .Also at 16 you have a whole life ahead of you and you could achieve whatever you want .
In the meantime try and get out of the house . spend times at friends houses and just generally chilling with people whose company you enjoy
As for celegorms comment about going out for a run or a jog , that is very good advice . I walk the family dog most nights and i always find the time out walking the dog can be me time . Mainly cos at home it is always noisy a so when i am out walking i take time to reflect back on the day and things in general and realy think about stuff . It also helps me get random shit out of my head and concentrate on what realy matters which is yourself . In life you have to put yourself first . I know this may sound selfish but you cant help anyone else if you arent well mentally and physically yourself
