While these resources may be useful sources of information and self-help, we are unable to accept responsibility if your symptoms do not improve or indeed become worse. If this occurs, it is likely that self-help is insufficient to meet your needs, and it is strongly recommended that you seek the advice of your GP regarding the most appropriate treatment options.
