This questionnaire will help you explore your level of self-compassion and whether you tend to treat yourself with kindness and acceptance or whether you tend to bully yourself and get self-critical. Your responses can provide insight into your relationships and your ability to tolerate high levels of emotions. You may discuss your results with your therapist to help you deal more effectively with emotional issues in your life.
Note: This questionnaire is for informational purposes only and is not intended to function as a psychological or psychiatric assessment. These results are not designed to serve as or take the place of a clinical diagnosis. Diagnosis of a psychiatric disorder requires an extensive evaluation by a trained professional.
