Intake Questionnaire 2021/2022
This questionnaire will help me globally understand your situation. The more I know, the better we can get to the core cause of your symptoms. This will also help shorten our sessions, so that I will need to spend less time asking questions and more time on listening and giving advice. You will still get the chance, however, to go into further or repeated details as much as you want during the sessions. There is no need to rush.
