One way to identify the symptoms you are experiencing is to take assessments to measure your symptoms of trauma, anxiety and depression. I recommend taking these assessments before, during and after therapy to measure your results. The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) measures your anxiety and depression symptoms. The PTSD Checklist for the DSM-5 (PCL-5) measures your post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms related to a specific stressful or traumatic event.
