Assessing your questionnaire score
- 0-5 You are rising to the challenge.
- 6-10 You are coping but things are not easy. A good chat with a friend and doing something you enjoy would be a good idea.
- 11-15 You are not at your personal best and are finding things harder than usual. Something needs to change for you to feel better. Speak to one of our therapists for a one off review session to assess your situation and see what you can do and what would help.
- 16-20 You are having a difficult time. Contact your GP and/or our clinic so you can get help and support.
