Do I Need Therapy? Take Our Quiz

Mental Health and Wellbeing

Is therapy worth your time? If you feel overwhelmed with stress, anxiety, and sadness on a regular basis, professional counseling may be a good source of help. Therapy isn't only for times of crisis or severe distress.

Kathleen Smith, PhD, LPC

Life isn’t always difficult, but every life has challenging times. Everyday stresses from relationships, work, and/or school can pile up, leaving you feeling overwhelmed, burned out, distressed, stuck, fill in the blank.

Therapy isn’t only for people diagnosed with mental illnesses. Everyone can benefit from therapy. Seeking professional input can be especially helpful when our usual coping strategies (talking to friends, reading, or doing research online) don’t make us feel better.

Think of it as emotional self-care. Therapy can be a time and space where you feel supported and heard. Therapists are trained to listen carefully and teach you new ways to tackle problems (old and new), manage symptoms, and build healthy habits for dealing with life’s curveballs.

Answer the questions below to see if therapy might be a good next step for you.

Who Is This Quiz For?

Below is a list of questions that relate to life experiences common among people who may need to seek help from a therapist. Please read each question carefully, and indicate how often you have experienced these symptoms or challenges recently.

How Accurate Is It?

This quiz is NOT a diagnostic tool. Mental health disorders can only be diagnosed by a licensed mental health provider or doctor.

Psycom believes assessments can be a valuable first step toward getting treatment. All too often people stop short of seeking help out of fear their concerns aren’t legitimate or severe enough to warrant professional intervention.

Therapy FAQs

How do you know if you should talk to a therapist?

If you feel overwhelmed or burned out by life’s stressors, or are unsure how to move toward a important goal, then therapy can be useful for you. You don’t have to be experiencing particular mental health challenges or symptoms to benefit from therapy.

Therapy is a neutral, calm space to help you do your best thinking. A therapist isn’t going to tell you what you should do. They simply provide a framework and tools for taking on challenges, and a supportive, non-judgmental environment to do your best thinking.

If you’re thinking about working with a therapist, don’t hesitate to reach out to someone. Many professionals offer free consultations where they can answer all your questions about their work, before you commit to seeing someone regularly.

How do I know if therapy will work for me?

Therapy can be beneficial to anyone who is experiencing distress, facing a challenge, or wanting to work on themselves. However, do not be discouraged if the first therapist you contact doesn’t feel like a good match for you. Ask a potential therapist if they’ve worked with people with similar challenges as yourself, and what the work you’d do together would look like. Ask them how much therapy costs, and if your insurance will cover the sessions.

Therapy works best when a person comes to a session with specific concerns or challenges they want to think about. Writing down your thoughts and observations between sessions and completing any “homework” given to you will help you get the most out of your time with your therapist. Also, if you have any concerns when working with your therapist, don’t hesitate to share them. Regular feedback helps your therapist do their best work, and it builds trust in the relationship.

How often should you see a therapist?

When you begin to see a therapist, together you will decide how often you should meet. People in crisis may want to meet more frequently to start, while others feel comfortable meeting with their therapist weekly, every other week, or even monthly.

Frequency may depend on the theory and techniques being used. For example, a therapist using brief-solution focused therapy may recommend you come in weekly for 6-8 weeks.

While it’s important to hear your therapist’s thinking about frequency, the decision is up to you. You should never be pressured to meet more frequently with your therapist than you’d like.

What’s the difference between a therapist and a counselor?

The word “therapist” is often used as a catchall term to describe someone trained as a mental health professional. A person who is licensed as a mental health counselor, a clinical social worker, a marriage and family therapist, or a psychologist may describe themselves as being a therapist.

A counselor is someone who has licensure in one of the counseling professions, such as mental health counseling, rehabilitation counseling, alcohol and drug counseling, or school counseling. Counseling professionals often take a strengths- or solutions-focused approach, helping individuals or groups of individuals to meet their personal goals.

In addition to asking about a potential therapist’s licensure, it can help to ask about what theory or theories they use in their practice. For example, a clinical social worker and a counselor both might use cognitive behavioral therapy, making their work more similar than two counselors who use different theories in their work.

How much does therapy cost?

One 2019 report from SimplePractice found that the average cost of therapy in the US ranged between $100 and $200 per session. However, the cost of therapy will vary widely depending on several factors.

Your insurance may cover the cost of therapy, but you may also have a copay. If a therapist does not take your insurance, they may use a sliding scale based on income to make it more affordable. Many non-profits and university clinics may offer low-cost or no-cost counseling for people.

If you reach out to a therapist who is charging more than you can afford, don’t hesitate to ask them if they have a sliding scale or have recommendations for low-cost options in the area. Therapists have an ethical mandate to do good, and they should be willing and able to connect you to the help you need.

If you think you or someone you care about may be experiencing mental health challenges, Psycom strongly recommends that you seek help from a mental health professional in order to receive a proper diagnosis and support.

Do I Need Therapy? — Should I See a Therapist Quiz

This online screening is not a diagnostic tool. Only a trained medical professional, such as a doctor or mental health professional, can help you determine the next best steps for you.

We all have experienced moments of stress and anxiety in our lives. Many of us are no strangers to the emotional and mental challenges brought on by problems at work, financial worries, issues in our relationships, or grief over the loss of a loved one.

Sometimes we can handle these challenges on our own or with the help of friends and family members we trust.

But what about when these feelings become so overwhelming that they seem to weigh you down? Who do you turn to then?

Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is a common treatment for a number of mental health conditions, but it can also help with day-to-day challenges and concerns.

Not all psychotherapy is the same, and not all therapists offer the same services in the same way. And, contrary to popular belief, not all therapists have a chaise lounge or couch in their office for you to lie on.

Therapy can be one-on-one, in a group setting, or done as a family. If face-to-face therapy isn’t the best option for you, there are options for online therapy.

There are many therapeutic approaches depending on your unique needs. A few common psychotherapy approaches include:

  • cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • acceptance and commitment therapy
  • dialetical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • psychoanalytic and psychodynamic therapy
  • family therapy
  • interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT)

People seek therapy for many reasons — from needing help dealing with a mental health condition to just needing someone to talk with.

Therapy can be effective for a variety of situations. A 2019 review found that psychotherapy was helpful across several problem areas. The review also suggested that routine psychotherapy was especially helpful for those who had severe distress.

How effective therapy is for you will depend on you, your unique needs, and how much work you do between and during sessions. You can also see a therapist for just a few sessions or longer, depending on your needs.

No matter the topic, there’s no reason to be ashamed of seeking additional help and support. Therapy can offer a safe space for you to talk and just be yourself.

Finding the right therapist can be crucial to your decision on whether therapy is the best option for you and your needs. It can take some time but it will be worth it.

If you’re considering therapy but not sure where to start, you can check out Psych Central’s hub for finding mental health support.

This brief, time-saving questionnaire is designed for anyone who thinks they may benefit from therapy.

Psychotherapy has the ability to benefit everyone.

Anyone can attend therapy to improve or work through any concerns — from improving relationships at home to getting tools to improve focus and concentration.

This test consists of 12 questions that relate to how you’ve felt and behaved during the past month. For each question, try to respond as honestly as possible to get an accurate assessment.

Your responses will help determine whether you may need additional help and professional support for a concerning life issue.

A mental health professional can also help figure out if your issues might be a symptom of a mental health condition and recommend treatment if needed.

This online screening is not a definitive tool. It will not conclusively guarantee that you will benefit from therapy.

However, it can be useful if you’re thinking about therapy and want to determine whether therapy is the right option for you.

Only a trained medical professional, such as a doctor or mental health professional, can help you determine the next best steps for you.

?How to create a custom game quiz in PowerPoint?

Answering quiz questions is always fun! You see the cells with the names of the categories and the cost of the questions, and you inevitably feel nostalgia. I remember home evenings in front of the TV, when we puzzled over the next question with the players.

Thanks to modern technology, you can literally create a quiz like "Your game" in 10-20 minutes and play it with your friends. In this article, we will show you how to make such a quiz in PowerPoint. Start thinking of questions! nine0003

In addition, you will receive detailed step-by-step instructions for creating a quiz from scratch and a free quiz template in PPT format.

So let's get started!

Step 1: Create the playing field

  1. Open PowerPoint and create a new presentation.
  2. On the Design tab, select and apply the theme you like.
  3. Create a new slide and add a table to it ( Insert Table ).
  1. Create a table with five columns and five rows. nine0014
  2. Enlarge the table to fit the entire slide and fill in the cells.
  1. Change the color of the game board to look even more like the original Custom Game board. To do this, select the table and click Shading on the toolbar in the Table Styles section.

When you have completed all the steps, the game board will look something like this:

Each cell has a hyperlink inserted into it that leads to the corresponding question.

Understanding Slide Layouts

Each slide in PowerPoint has its own layout. For example, Title slide or Title and object.

You can select the desired layout by right-clicking on the slide thumbnail on the left side of the screen.

You can also edit and create new slide layouts using the Slide Master tool.

Working with layouts and using the Slide Master mode is very important when creating a quiz like this, because it consists of a large number of similar slides. nine0003

Basically you will have two types of slides:

  • Question slide. It will contain the text of the question and the Find out the answer button to check the correctness of the player's answer.
  • Slide with correct answer. It will contain the answer to the question and the Home button leading back to the playing field.

If you make any changes through the Slide Master, they will be automatically applied to all slides of that type in the presentation.

For example, you can change the background color, text position, or font size, then switch to normal view and see that all changes have been applied. nine0003

Step 2: Create Q&A Slide Layouts

The layouts described below are already included in our quiz template.

If you want to create your own layouts, follow these steps:

  1. Click the View tab and select Slide Master.
  2. Click Insert Layout.
  1. Right-click on the layout and click Rename.
  1. Add a button to the slide. Go to the Insert tab, click Shapes and select Control Buttons from the dropdown list. Select a custom action button and add it to your slide. nine0014
  1. In Action setting , select Go to hyperlink: next slide and click OK.
  1. Right-click on the button, click Change text and write the word "Answer" (or "Find out the answer" - as you like).
  1. Similar to the question slide, create an answer slide. Right-click on the left panel with slide masters and click Insert Layout. Name the new layout "Correct Answer". nine0014
  2. Add a Home button and insert a hyperlink that will take you to the game board slide. In our case, this is Slide 2.
  1. Exit the Slide Master view by clicking the Close Master View button on the top toolbar, or go to the View tab and select Normal View .

Step 3: Add Slides and Place Links on the Game Board

Now we have the title slide and the game board slide. In addition, we made slide layouts for questions and answers. nine0003

  1. Create a third slide. Right-click and select the previously created Question layout.
  2. Create the fourth slide. Right-click and select the previously created layout Correct Answer. You should end up like this:
  1. You have a question and answer pair. Duplicate slides 3 and 4 as many times as there are active cells on the playing field. In our example, the field consists of 20 cells. The total number of slides together with the first two will be 42.

Note: We recommend that on the slides with questions, instead of the questions themselves, first write a draft designation (for example, Category 1, Question for 200). So it will be easier for you to arrange hyperlinks.

Connect the cells of the playing field with the corresponding slides:

  1. Select the numbers in the cell of the playing field, right-click and select Hyperlink (or press Ctrl+K).
  1. In the window that opens, in the left pane, select Place in the document and select the desired slide (for example, Category 1, Question 200). nine0014
  2. Click OK to insert the hyperlink.

Restricting navigation

Go to the Navigation tab. Select all slides except the first one and uncheck Change slide: on click. This will provide navigation through hyperlinks and buttons in your game instead of moving to the next slide on a mouse click.

Step 4: Add Interactive Questions

You can add audio, video, and PowerPoint animations and slide transitions to the quiz. You can use any effects you like to make the game more fun. nine0003

Adding images to questions

Simply drag and drop any picture into the presentation from a folder on your computer. It is best to use PNG images with a transparent background.

Alternatively, go to the Insert tab, click Pictures (or Pictures from the Internet) to add an image to complement the question (or to puzzle participants).

You can add different effects such as shadow, reflection or highlight. Select the Format tab and click Format Picture. You can add animation if you want. nine0003

Correct answer: He feels out of sorts

Loading music and setting up autoplay

Drag the audio file onto the slide or click Insert Audio .

Click on the audio file icon and go to the Playback tab. Set Start: Automatic.

We recommend using audio files of 15 seconds or less. By the way, is a great site where you can download music legally and for free. nine0003

Correct answer: Nightingale

Adding video questions

Drag the video onto the question slide or go to the Insert tab and click Video.

Similar to an audio file, go to the Playback tab and set Start: Automatic.

Subtitles will help make this question more understandable to all participants. Just add a text box below the video and paste your question text. In this video question for the text, we used the animation Appear with a delay of 9seconds. Thus, the text appears after the player has time to understand the meaning of the video.

Correct Answer: Italian

Other Improvements

Here are a few tips to further improve your game:

  • Add transition effects for question slides (Fade in or Zoom in) using the Slide Master mode.
  • Add a Flip effect to your answer slides to make them look like you're flipping a card.
  • Add triggers to hide the answered question boxes (you'll see them in the sample presentation that accompanies this article. They won't be visible in the HTML5 web presentation). nine0014
  • Add audio triggers to question slides. For example, the sounds of victory or defeat. Use these sounds during the game to make it more fun.
  • Add the second round of the quiz and the final and insert links to them on the slide with the first round's playing field.

Test the resulting game

Make sure all links and effects work correctly. Run the presentation by pressing F5 (P Slide Show From Start ) and view the entire game. Check every hyperlink on the playing field and make sure they lead to the right questions. nine0003

Publish your game to the Internet

With iSpring Converter Pro, you can publish your quiz to the Internet in just one click as a web file, as in this article.

And if you want to share the game via a link or embed the code on your blog or website (as in this article), it's very convenient to use the iSpring Cloud service. Your quiz will be viewable on any device, even if recipients don't have PowerPoint.

Don't forget to test it after it's published. nine0003

Play your game

And now the fun part! Once you've created a game and posted it online, it's time to invite your friends and play! You will need two or more players, a piece of paper and a pencil to write down the score.

Start the game and become its host. In the original TV version of this game, the contestants press the big button to answer. Since we are not in the studio, the contestants can just clap their hands.

The rules of the game are simple:

  • The first player chooses the category and difficulty of the question. For example, US Presidents, 300.
  • The moderator clicks on the selected cell of the playing field and reads the question aloud. For example: "Teddy bear was invented after this American president refused to shoot a bear tied to a tree while hunting."
  • After the facilitator has read the question, any of the participants may clap their hands to answer. For example, assume that it was Theodore Roosevelt. nine0014
  • If the answer is correct, the player receives the number of points due for that question and can choose the next one.
  • If the answer is wrong, the player receives penalty points, while the other player can try to answer the question.
  • After all questions on the game board have been answered, scoring begins. The player with the most points wins.

Check out our game:

To learn more about the official game rules, check out the official game page for the original Jeopardy! on Wikipedia, as well as a page about "Own Game". nine0003

You can play your own game anywhere: even in the kindergarten, even in the office. The purpose of the quiz is not only to test knowledge and reaction speed, but also to defuse the situation and bring the participants closer.

If you're having trouble formulating questions, watch past TV games.
