help with high kick / headkick

Guys,

I have been taking a thai boxing class since october.

I am having a very difficult time throwing a high kick.

If I am standing straigh on, I can easiliy raise my foot to my head level. However, if I pivot on my left foot ( orthodox stance) and try to turn my right leg over and lift it high I feel a pain. Is my technique wrong? Flexibility is a MAJOR concern as well.

Just now I put my leg on a counter top and "turned my hip over". It was pretty painful , lol.

Any suggestions? Tips?

Thanks!
