Questionnaire

Do I need professional Help?

The following questionnaire may help you figure out whether professional counseling might be helpful to you. Every patient has some of these symptoms. Circle the answer that fits best for you, from 1 (not at all) to 5 (all the time) or one of the numbers in between. There are no right or wrong answers. Answer the questions honestly. If you try to cover up how you feel, you might not get the help you need.
